Good morning, Sir Poitevin! Sorry to have bothered you this early but I heard you had some good insights about philosophy.
You have indeed woke me up from my deep slumber. You should really take advantage of self-reflection whilst in bed. Anyhow, I want you to take a look at that tree outside.
Philosophy as a whole can be metaphorically compared to a tree, where the roots is metaphysics, the trunk is physics, and the branches are all the other sciences. The roots are the scientific and mathematical truths branching out into applications of your knowledge to your experiences.
It is important because as a learner, you, yourself, is your own teacher. It is a personal quest rather than a social process. Hence, you must question everything! It is the way to gain as much knowledge as possible.
Justified knowledge, that is. Now if you'll excuse me, I will carry on to do my meditations in bed. You can go ahead and trouble our friend John next door.
Hello, Professor Dewey! I would like to know your thoughts on education in our everyday life. And how does experience come into play?
What brought you in today, young man?
Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself. Education, therefore, is a process of living and not a preparation for future living. Learning comes when you build upon previous experiences by way of 'trying' and 'undergoing'. These two go hand in hand as we continuously reconstruct or reorganize our experiences.
