The Educated Man

Arthur Stanley Pease, "From Solon to Stevenson," Phi Beta Kappa Key 4.8 (May, 1921) 454-461 (at 459):
I dislike, by the way, that term "educated man," for it seems to imply a finality and attainment suggestive of the finishing school and quite contrary, in the intellectual sphere, to the spirit of Solon, as it is in the moral realm to that of St. Paul. Let us say, then, the "learning" rather than the "educated" man.
