Can Humanities Save Me?
Can Humanities Save Me?
Can studying humanities really change my life?
I do not believe so.
There was a humanities craze several years ago.
These are the sayings that life will change only when you read a lot of books, the seeds of thought that have firmly established in everyone's mind.
I, too, were obsessed with such claims.
So, even in my busy life for 10 years, I think I took time to study the humanities.
In fact, it's okay to add humanities books as fun, but even if I watch them, they don't follow as much fun as movies or dramas.
I, who like to read books, also referred to it for'self-measurement'.
At one time, I quit reading for a while, because I boasted of'the image of studying', and I thought that I was only pursuing entertainment rather than development.
So, there were times when I was addicted to my job and avoided reading books.
In fact, there are many true philosophers in the workplace, and many white students don't know about the world.
Still, in terms of information, there is nothing to follow the book.
No matter how popular YouTube is these days, it is too different from books in investing time.
You have to listen for a few minutes to get information, but it's really hard work.
The question I want to ask here is whether the
humanities study must have an answer to solve the difficult problems in life.
There are not a few mentors who say'the humanities will save us'.
Some people do not teach humanities directly, but say that they should learn humanities.
To be honest, I have a vague resentment to these humanities guru.
Why is there no opinion that you don't have to look at the book?
I don't think reading is a must for everyone.
I think that those who have learned the humanities should not look down on those who are not.
Those who do not have a hobbies for reading books may mislead their lives.
It is somewhat violent because all of the humanities authors swear by their own language and standards.
Therefore, even if it is very logical, it is not universal and can be somewhat assertive.
If an untrained beginner in humanities reads just one book like this, it's shocking.
And as if the author's words are the truth of the world, they look at the world categorically.
Since I don't like to read books, I'm very unlikely to read more later, and I can't be critical because my thoughts are out of reach.
One of the rare events of reading leads to intolerant thoughts.
I'd rather haven't read it.
Moreover, there aren't many books in the bookstore that aren't good books.
How about reading classics over low quality books?
It was formerly St. John's College, where it became a hot topic for only teaching humanities classics for four years.
And it was such a wonderful and hopeful story that a student who graduated there would become a great leader.
If you were a humanities mentor, you would have mentioned it at least once.
It was a story that was very hard for me too.
However, if it is the humanities that I know,'I was suspicious' that there seems to be nothing great when a university student without social experience learns humanities for four years.
Besides, humanities study is not one of the training you have to do with your hips attached.
Study (工夫) is read in Chinese with Kung Fu, and head writing is also important, but in itself, sincerity is an important factor.
It is never a goal that can be easily reached and requires effort, time, and consistency.
I was suspicious of the idea that I could solve a difficult problem like life only by reading it for 4 years.
Then I read a book about a Korean graduate who had graduated from St. John's College.
I was thrilled to hear it through the mouth of an insider whether it was a real myth.
However, the book's conclusion was,'You can't learn as much as we expected'.
In English, this psychology is called'Magic Bullet'.
The expectation that you can do anything with just one bullet.
In some ways, this kind of mind may have come from laziness.
The reason we are so enthusiastic about the humanities is that life is hard.
Difficult problems lurk in every corner of your life, but they are not easy to solve.
Maybe we wanted to believe that there is a'magic bullet' that will solve life's unsolvable challenges in one room, so I was enthusiastic about the claim that the humanities are the answer to all my questions.
I was very interested in the proposition of death in the past.
I searched many books of philosophy and theology, but I wasn't quite close to learning at the hospital.
Books and knowledge are good guidelines to guide me, but I don't think they can solve all my problems.
If you don't have a hobby in reading, should you read?
Can you criticize them by asking,'Why don't you read a book?'
I think reading is a virtue, but I wonder if
you need more atmosphere in which you are faithful to your desires in your place, take pride in your work, and live in recognition of each other.
