verb

To bring out more clearly the facts concerning; to make lucid or clear.

The chief element in the art of statesmanship under modern conditions is the ability to elucidate the confused and clamorous interests which converge upon the seat of government. It is an ability to penetrate from the naïve self-interest of each group to its permanent and real interest.... Statesmanship ... consists in giving the people not what they want but what they will learn to want.

—Walter Lippmann A Preface to Morals (1929)
