Scott Lee talks about the value of higher education in the present day, which will more likely allow professional achievements and goals for people. Lee sets out how acquiring information and knowledge influence the habits of citizens and university's students to pursue a superior education and be part of the successful business world. He illustrates the choice of human action through the events written in The History of the Peloponnesian War by Thucydides, and makes a comparison between the Greek and Roman cultures. Finally, Lee concludes the session by giving advice to students in their particular education process.
