Philanthropy - from the Greek Philanthropos, an adjective describing the character of a benefactor. Plutarch used the term Philanthropia in the 1st century for people who are fully developed; Plato first used the term in noun form. Philanthropy is at the core of the western tradition of liberal education. (Excepted from a presentation made by Dr. George McCully, renowned historian and philanthropist; Hartwick College; April 2012.)
