This is Humans of Jefferson. Meet Jason from Dexter, NY. Jason graduated from JCC with his degree in Human Services in December 2017 and plans to complete his degree in Chemical Dependency in May. Before coming to JCC, Jason served in the U.S. Navy and during his military time, he toured three continents. His career goal is to become a licensed clinical social worker. He is proud of JCC and the personal atmosphere the campus offers. What intrigues him most about the college is the eagerness of professors who want to help him despite not being one of their students. In his spare time, he enjoys fishing, hunting and spending time with his family. He says “utilize the resources provided at JCC and don’t be afraid to ask questions.” #SUNYJefferson #humansofjefferson

It’s true that Marx was highly doctrinaire, something that did not wear well with his compatriots in the nineteenth century, and that certainly does not wear well today, after the experience of the regimes conceived in his name. It therefore sounds perverse to say that Marx’s philosophy was dedicated to human freedom. But it was. Marx was an Enlightenment thinker: he wanted a world that is rational and transparent, and in which human beings have been liberated from the control of external forces.
~ Louis Menand

History is nothing but assisted and recorded memory. It might almost be said to be no science at all, if memory and faith in memory were not what science necessarily rest on. In order to sift evidence we must rely on some witness, and we must trust experience before we proceed to expand it. The line between what is known scientifically and what has to be assumed in order to support knowledge is impossible to draw.
~ George Santayana
