Part of the intellectual virtue of humility consists in an order of preferences where truth is preferred to one’s own reputation. I call that order of preferences love of truth and argue that because of how intellectual humility involves love of truth, school education, that aims at instilling this virtue, cannot be wholly outcomes-based or organised as work towards learner-centred competences.
