    Great! I wish Platt agreed.

    Do you see participating in high quality patterns of reasoning as only
    part of having good character? What other patterns are missing that
    make intellectual an inadequate label?

    Give you give other examples of patterns that you would say a person
    with good character participates in?

    Can you explain how you distinguish these patterns of quality character
    from social patterns?
