An education is a set of roadmaps through the complex cities of human thought, which taken all together can be overwhelming and almost unnavigable.

Most of us need a guide to find our way through, not just to learn, but to put our learning into use a good education is just a voice saying, look here, this is important, and here is why...

Plato,  Aristotle,  Dante,  Marlowe,  Kyd,  Shakespeare,   Erasmus,  Moore,  Galileo,  Newton,  Wollstonecraft,  Swift,  Browning, Bronte, Shaw,  Wilde, Wittgenstein,  Goethe,  Sartre,  Camus,  Nietzsche,  Woolf,  Eliot,  Einstein, Heisenberg,  Hawking , Thorne,  and Kaku,  to name a few,  are all cultural icons because they have wonderful things to say about the human spirit and the nature of the world. 

Literature, History, Art, Mathematics, Anthropology, Philosophy, Music,  Poetry, and Physics these are all inextricably linked together.  They are all part of the story of who we are, where we come from, and where we are going.  They are the poem that is Humankind. Learning this poem is part of learning to be human and humane.

Wanting to learn about the world is natural.  All of us are born with the desire, the hunger to learn, but so many miss out, there are distractions everywhere. . .

My Oxford Academy is a place of focus, a place where, for a moment, the distractions recede.  Here, Literature, History, Art, Mathematics, Anthropology, Philosophy, Music, Poetry, and Physics all come together as part of the same story.

It is our story; it is the music of our lives. So it goes. . . .
