Does anyone know if the "ragamuffin" quote below is from Jacob Bronowski?

"It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot irreverence to their studies; they are not to worship what is known, but to question it."

It's generally attributed to an apparently nonexistent person called Jacob Chanowski. There's a discussion that goes into more detail here: http://forums.techguy.org/civilized-debate/709837-eggys-articles-note-2-a-329.html

Yes, it appears to be. Adding it to the Wikiquote page now, with source. shreevatsa 20:35, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
