Mere Reflectors: A Critical Conceptual Examination
Ellen White’s challenge to train our “youth to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors of other men’s thought” (Education, p. 11) can be misinterpreted. Often, individuals criticize education’s focus on scholarly sources instead of personal creativity. However, to avoid reflecting other men’s thoughts, students must be aware of what those men – and women – have said.
