Right Life

The response of adults? "Leave me alone, do not ask stupid questions!" That's no longer our children to grow, already in a fairly early age. Our education system also does not develop rights, but only pushes it into the "necessary" framework. Who cares? Yes, anyone. Just a teacher is more convenient to respond only to the usual questions, and everything else to prevent, as heresy. Exceptions, of course, there are, but they only prove the rule. Adults – a special conversation. Many have stopped not only learn, but simply ossified.

And forever! They always know the "correct answers" and always tell you "who is to blame and what to do." The truth, no happiness, no joy, for money it typically does not add. Again, there are exceptions, but then, they are rules to be violated. But to ask questions – the easiest way to self-development. Simple questions like "What I want to achieve in life?" Or "How can I get "will help you not just once or twice an unusual perspective on life can be developed just constantly asking," How else can use (you can put any familiar object or event)? "An example? Please. Tel. How many does now feature-rich mobile phone? So, the best way to change quickly in the right direction – is to ask lots of questions. Including the stupid. Answers to such "silly questions" will allow you to better know the nature of the person with whom you communicate.

And then, the question usually provides the "hook" to specify a different matter. And so on to infinity. If you have a question arose "just so", do not rely on his memory, because nothing just like in life is not happening.

Self-knowledge And Self-education

The destiny of man – is self-knowledge and self-education. And no need to refer to adverse conditions. Gorky said that man creates himself, not because but in spite of circumstances. And proved the validity of his fate. Marx pointed out that if people live in adverse circumstances, he is the man to make these circumstances human. Then, in the process of converting an imperfect world, people at the same time transform and improve themselves.

If a person, people, society set themselves lofty goals and strive for their implementation, there Antiquity and the Renaissance, the Industrial Revolution and the Enlightenment, the great social revolution in England, France and Russia, the industrial revolution and scientific and technological revolution, the path in space and restructuring. Every great epoch were taken out for an arena of great men: Homer and Shakespeare, Robespierre and Washington, dc, Marx, and Goethe, Einstein and Lenin. Make your time, its era of great – it's right and duty of great nations, each of the people living on Earth. Then life itself does not allow people to be petty and vile, to enable them to transcend over itself and destiny. In all the past generations had such an opportunity. And they did their best to live a dignified life.

The Scholastic

It was in this environment of intense overturn that lived Toms de Aquino (1224-1275), in the City of Rocasseca, Italy. 2.A Scholastic and the symbol of the medieval universality With the Iluminismo, century XIII passed to be considered as ' ' century of trevas' ' , because as already it was displayed previously, it was a period marked for the authority and predominance of the Church Catholic on all the Society, valley to stand out that with the predominance and authority of the Church, the terrena life was until then total rejected and imported only the future life.

The Scholastic stimulates the dialectic, mainly in the relation between Philosophy and Theology. Its importance if must to the fact of that as much suggested answers, how much excited questionings, promoting mainly, debates. The Scholastic represents, therefore, the last period of the Christian thought the Education in the Average Age if it presented in a peculiar way, represented for ' ' quaestio disputata' ' (disputed questions), that they consisted of the education form that gave voice to the interlocutor.
