A writer’s education

Hannah Arendt wrote (in 1954):

‘The problem of education in the modern world lies in the fact that by its very nature it cannot forego either authority or tradition, and yet must proceed in a world that is neither structured by authority nor held together by tradition.’

I think this is true of a writer’s education too.
