Professors who are intellectually and/or affectively dependent in an unbalanced way upon their graduate school mentors--- will pass on that unbalanced dependence to their students, thus imprisoning their students as they themselves were imprisoned by their graduate school mentors. Unbalanced affective and/or intellectual dependence is the natural consequence of a failure of graduate school professors to affirm integrative values with personal integrity themselves. Human dependency is a natural condition and there are natural tendencies to move towards greater and greater dependency in the absence of humane values which promote integrity and balanced interdependency. Liberal arts colleges that seek to be true to their name have a responsibility to select professors who have been liberally educated professors who are qualified to implement a curriculum in a way which will help students become liberally educated. The process of developing such liberally educated professors is thus an exceedingly slow one. The traditional research Ph.D (which for practical purposes is the only way to become accredited for college and university teaching) is not a balanced preparation for any kind of teaching. Requiring such a degree forces future college and university teachers to become dependent in an unbalanced way upon mentors who have specialized in pure research to the exclusion of interest in and the development of skills essential to helping students overcome affective and intellectual blocks to learning. Either the Ph.D degree must be broadened to be a more balanced, or colleges and universities must stop requiring their professors to have earned such an unbalanced degree. The present practice is producing a generation of specialists who are blind to its tragic consequences. The fact that all the specialists agree with each other is no proof that they are wise. Participants in collusions agree with each other very sincerely. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
