“The separation of mind and body is a central idea in much of Western philosophy, and it has become the basis for many of the policies and organizational models of education. This idea may be for some a reassuring existential construction or a pleasant and relatively low-risk form of self-aggrandizement that helps us feel justified in claiming some superiority over other creatures or distancing ourselves from the relentlessly corporal facts of human life. Regardless, it is complete fiction. “
(Richard P. Keeling and Richard H. Hersh, We’re Losing Our Minds: Rethinking American Higher Education, New York, NY: Palgrave MacMillan, p. 71).
