Schmallegers philosophy of both teaching and writing can be summed up in these words: In order to communicate knowledge we must first catch, then hold, a persons interestbe it student, colleague, or policymaker. Our writing, our speaking, and our teaching must be relevant to the problems facing people today, and they must in some way help solve those problems.
