Details of knowledge that are important, will learn definitively in every circumstance of life, but the habit of the active use of well understood principles is the final possession of the wisdom. Differences between education for memory and data, and an education that is intelligent activity and search for skills to continue learning and to effectively dispose of the information, or conceive new truth if necessary should be very clear. We usually associate studies and learning with children. (This Mannheim3 has already observed it). Because the eldest was precisely that didn’t have to go to school, that he had received this basic quota of knowledge, that primary and final dose of truths that could already stay quiet. Be an adult was not having to study more. It saw no reason to continue learning.

But that which was valid for a stagnant culture does not is it more in our time. Hence the growing importance of continuing education. In traditional thought, the end was only known by Professor. The student had no idea where he was, nor what you would teach tomorrow or for what taught him what they were illustrating him today. The man, no matter whatever your occupation or task, is naturally a philosopher and can not be though it proposes it. What happens is that his philosophy, that of the generality of men, is what others thought by him and is constituted by the Repertoire more or less broad ideas and assessments of and from which live without repairing them, without worrying about knowing where they come you not that mean. The new vision of this nascent century education is to achieve thinkers and men and women able to analyze the reality, the environment of daily life. In the initial school period, the student has been mentally tilted on his desk at the University should be of foot and recognize its around.

You must leave the details and start to recognize the principles. Perhaps in this way, we can overcome the shortcomings in a society that by making effective use of science, shown powerless to comprehend it. We need to complement the science of physical nature with the dogmas of human reason. Higher periods of evolution, coincide with a being that it can investigate itself and glimpse the infinitude of the spirit, his own inner self. In this way, the understanding achieved by each person to consider, which advance by knowing, transmutara in principles, guiding its holder towards the prelude to wisdom, towards the knowledge of himself. Our task must be from today.
