Plato's ideals of goodness, truth, and beauty exist in a precarious balance. Not only are they out of humanity's reach, they cause problems when one overpowers the other two. Universities are in a unique position when it comes to fostering these ideals. If Brigham Young University is to become a great university, its faculty and students need to find the proper balance between its quest for goodness, truth, and beauty.
