Teaching in the Real Sense

Teaching in the real sense takes place only when the hearer is reached—not by dint of some personal magnetism or verbal magic, but rather, when the truth of what is said reaches the hearer as truth.

Being taught means to perceive that what the teacher has said is true and valid, and to perceive why this is so.

The truth develops only in dialogue, in conversation.

Josef Pieper, Guide to Thomas Aquinas
