Until now, I have just found two reasons behind education. The first reason that over ninety-nine percent of the scholars have accepted is "money-mind." The second reason is "to be a philosopher.
".In today's world of freedom, scholars are entitled to stand on money-mind's or philosopher's side. So which reason do you take side? The purpose of this article is to explain the true meaning and purpose of education from a very commoner's mind.
Education, from the pre-Socratic era up to the present, never means "for money." But the tendency of self-fulfillment has converted such the fresh purpose of education to mental and material risks. So what is the argument behind this?.
True education is about understanding, this understanding will lead to the truth and this truth must be finally revealed to the world; orally or by writing. Here is my formula for genuine education:."Understanding" leads to "knowing the truth" leads to "curiosity to share." Intellectuals must be curious to share to as much public as possible, no matter how dangerous and time-consuming it would take.To be particularly precise, education will lead you to be a philosopher. So now, we come to the very theme of this philosophical essay; what does philosopher mean?.
Philosopher means those vastly informed whose sole purpose is to rectify the mistake crazing amongst human mentality and society. To a more particular extend, his or her sacrifice to rectify mistakes in human mentalities and society must not target self-benefits and other worldly sins.To attain this law of nature, philosopher must be meticulously neutral and in good faith to human as a whole, regardless of color and any kind of discrimination, defined by history or abstract education.Discrimination is one of or probably the most apparent barriers to be a philosopher.
As I previously addressed, to learn to be a philosopher is to learn the truth; the world truth, and consequently, to correct the mistakes; worldly mistakes. There is no discrimination in the truth, and consequently, no discrimination in mistake-rectification.Philosopher must focus on "eternal public development" and to do this, he or she must endeavor to see and take up even one percent of the mistakes amongst ninety-nine excellences that are circumnavigating around human world.I do confess to all the readers that my "defined meaning of philosopher" is, to more or less extent, too obsolete and there may be no any genuine philosopher in this modern century able to accomplish this God's law, but I just want to prevail the truth, while I am in existence in this world and before I forever depart..Lay Vicheka is a translator for the most celebrated translation agency in the Kingdom of Cambodia, Pyramid Translation Co.
