From the greatest philosophers to the most brilliant scientific minds, the realms of wisdom and knowledge have yielded countless advances in the history of the human race.
In this section, we will be examining twelve different conversation topics. Using extensive research and professional and non-professional contributions, we will dive into various aspects concerning the structures and practices of seeking wisdom and knowledge.
We will discuss continuing education, structured learning and the benefits of continual learning, and also explore what it means to have a constant curiosity—reading, learning and seeking knowledge for its own sake.
We will be investigating the pros and cons of the current public school system and the need for educational reform, as well as the different ways to school your children—public, private, or home-schooling. We will then take a look at the benefits and weaknesses of post-secondary teaching facilities.
We’ll talk about mind games, and ways that you can constantly challenge your mind with crossword puzzles, quizzes and the like.
We all know someone who is can be brilliant when it comes to books, but horrendous when it comes to navigating a city or changing a car tire, or someone else who couldn’t build a table yet has a remarkable gift when it comes to socializing. We will analyze the different types of intelligence: common sense and street smarts vs. IQ and Mensa.
We will examine the importance of structure, encouragement and learning during the early years of educating our children, raising questions about when and why our children may need tutors, and the different considerations regarding the teaching of children with learning disabilities and special needs.
We will also talk about the importance of learning from, emulating, shadowing and taking the advice of others—a task that for some of us can be difficult.
Lastly, we will discuss timeless wisdom, the lasting truths and knowledge that have remained and will remain in our minds for years to come.
Through these conversation topics and research, we hope to explore the realms of wisdom and knowledge so that we can improve not only our own understanding of the world, but improve our children’s education as well.
