Educating For The Perfect World
"The hope of making (The Utopian State) would lie in culture. If
people could be persuaded to read and write, not just eat and make
love, there was still a chance that they might come to reason." This
statement made by Arthur applies to both the society within T. H.
White's novel, The Once and Future King, and to our own modern-day
society. Within the society depicted in the novel, as well as in our
own society, individuals who are educated and informed have open minds
to reason with each other in conflicting situations, rather than make
war. Through this idealistic view, proposed by T. H. White, there is
the possibility of achieving a utopian state.
