119. How can geniuses appear in social classes deprived of any intellectual education?

This fact shows that innate ideas are independent of the environment in which people are educated. Both environment and education develop innate ideas, but they do not provide them.

Thus, education may provide the instruction they still lack, but it cannot provide genius where there Is none.
