The 19th century gourmand and bon vivant Brillat-Savarin said “you are what you eat,” a phrase it is said that the philosopher Fuerbach borrowed. Brillat-Savarin’s english translator, the celebrated food writer MFK Fisher, replied in a foot note that, more importantly, you are HOW you eat.
we human beings have been given the capacity to think, and we think wrongly. To know how to think requires a great deal of penetration, understanding, but to know what to think is comparatively easy. Our present education consists in telling us what to think, it does not teach us how to think, how to penetrate, explore; and it is only when the teacher as well as the student knows how to think that the school is worthy of its name.
