Design activity that is fluid and emergent can help us discover new preferences. I argue that it can also help us grasp important ethical ideas. This suggests that design and design education can help form the liberally educated person, and can be a kind of liberal education that studies the human and his broadening preferences and ethical insights. Black and white film photography can be an example of a type of design practice that does this; its affordances for locating the designer in regions of wondrous nature help comport the designer to grasp ethical ideas. Thus photography alongside other design practices can help to reveal to us humans what we truly are and should deserve consideration for being an important aspect of a liberal education programme.
