Not for Ourselves Alone

An article written by John O’Malley, S.J. in Conversations of Jesuit Education. The article discusses the rhetorical education in the Jesuit society and illustrates the important role rhetoric has that influenced Jesuits to become a teaching society. The two aspects of Jesuit education according to O’Malley are academic and student- centered. Rhetoric is essential to the development of a student and it gives a sense of wide possibilities of the human spirit. The tradition of Jesuit education has been to have students grow into important posts that are to everybody’s advantage. However there have been many transformations throughout time and it is important that the basic goals remain valid and at the end of the article, as promised O’Malley delivers five bullet points that the Jesuit education should encompass today.
