The article focuses on the use of the lecture method as a teaching device. One reason for the persistence of the lecture system is the fear of teachers that if the lecture system is discarded, a teacher's position will grow less in importance. However then a true teacher is not a substitute for a book. The function of a teacher is not to impart information that can be found in a book. Information can be obtained from several sources besides books. True teaching is described as a give-and-take proposition where student and teacher exchange ideas on the material covered.
