Search for Meaning

Millennia of experience can help provide the sense of cultural legacy to build the moral sense within young people. The treasure of accumulated knowledge is now dependent on curiosity and available through technology. Herbart in the age of enlightenment came to the imperative that education is to cultivate humanity to a natural morality. That the educational challenge isn’t to impart knowledge but to promote students desire to be good and productive citizens.

With this age, I find people to be self guided in their search for meanings in the teachings technology provides. Making the responsibility to find persuasive means to move their understandings to a position that it is in their best interest and the interests of others around them to promote social values even more pressing. This responsibility is also spread out to not only the academic teachers, but the teachers of the general public. I am finding suggestible youth in public forums being guided by these public teachers unburdened by responsibility of immediate personal consequence. I feel more-so now then ever, that as a society “rising tides lifts all boats” (not in relation to the economy) and have hope that we can all move forward together in our search for meaning.
