China’s Education and What Education Should Be Like

Education should focus on making better humans.

Whatever it is, when we let a young man enter society, he should at least possess set of skills/abilities to accomplish what he wishes.

Nowadays education has ultimately changed its nature, it’s schooling, rather education.

I don’t see teachers are teaching skills rather than filling them up with useless tests that don’t prove a damn. The essence of schooling is to make students adapt a certain competitive system, but this system is so different than the real world systems. You don’t need to write tests, you don’t need to memorize textbook points. If you are talking about real system, hierarchies are most common in every industry’s office. Are you going to thrive in that system by finishing your tests? Office politics is a test for your social skills, that doesn’t have to do with anything test-related. ...READ MORE

Origin of Ethics, and More – Metaethics, Deism, Reasoning

Recently I have come across an article which lightened my sight, even though, from the original post Discussion on Whether It’s Good or Evil  I have asked about the origins and development of ethics. And in this article Where Does Morality Come From? still couldn’t answer how it develops.

Discussion of Whether It’s Good or Evil – Ethics, Morality, Values

Long before I have questioned these:

  • How do we define good or evil?
  • What is it that it takes for the public/somebody to do something good, or something evil?
  • In primitive society, there wasn’t any morals or ethics exist, so where does good come from? And where does evil?

In the time of searching, I have come across different views on this.

These concepts though do not completely answer the questions, but they give some sort of insights of how good has been good and how evil has been evil.

From philosophy perspective, how we define a man’s action/doing right/good or wrong/evil can go three separate paths, as in above: Consequentialism, Deontology and Virtue Ethics. ...READ MORE

The Value of Life, the Meaning of Death

Have you ever wonder why we live? What’s the purpose of our existence?

Most people wouldn’t even bother to understand their existence, since they know their limits or they give up understanding it, or they are just too dumb to fathom complex concepts.

We in the society have always countered suicidal events, why the kids or the persons want to die so badly to end their lives?

We know our limits but we couldn’t do anything to stop it, the sense of powerless is felt by many men. ...READ MORE
