As we strive to pass on to our posterity the knowledge and skills they need not just to survive but to carry on the great task of culture-building that we have inherited from our forefathers, isn’t it true that we are simply communicating the truth about the world? Aren’t we just telling them what we know about what has happened and what happens in the world? Consider a course in science. The purpose is for students to learn how one part of the created order maintains existence and interacts with other parts of nature. In art we teach them the effect of placing one value alongside another or when one color is added to its complement. Everything students learn can be summed up in this: something that occurred, is occurring, or will occur in the world.
