This is merely my opinion, but I believe the most important thing for someone majoring in Liberal Arts to understand is this:
ἐγὼ δὲ οὐδὲν ἐπίσταμαι πλέον πλὴν βραχέος, ὅσον λόγον παρ᾽ ἑτέρου σοφοῦ λαβεῖν καὶ ἀποδέξασθαι μετρίως.
I myself know nothing, except just a little, enough to extract an argument from another man who is wise and to receive it fairly.
Theaetetus, 161b – Plato
If they learn that and truly take it to heart, they will have no problems with their coursework.
