Education Is The Way Of Thinking Before The Enlightenment

- The Enlightenment period was a time where change began in the education system. Prior to this time, religion was held in high regard and that is what was the driving force in education. One of the driving forces behind this push for change was because many started to see that the way people should be living life is by believing in reason and evidence, instead of what the beliefs are that have already been laid out for them to believe. Another aspect of the way of thinking before the Enlightenment was that life would be better after death instead of living a fulfilled life while they were living....   [tags: Education, School, Age of Enlightenment, Teacher]

Leisure Is A Way Of Having Relaxation And Tranquility

- Joffre Dumazedier, a leading French sociologist, defines leisure as an “activity—apart from the obligations of work, family and society—to which the individual turns at will, for either relaxation, diversion, or broadening his knowledge and his spontaneous social participation, the free exercise of his creative capacity” (Kraus 40). Out of all the definitions of leisure, this is the definition that I can relate to the most. For me, leisure is a way of having relaxation and tranquility. Leisure differs from recreation in the way that leisure doesn’t have to be “socially” likeable or involve work, but leisure is something that a person likes to the do in their free time....   [tags: Leisure, Personal life, Recreation, Homework]

Communication Is The Way Of Listening And Communicate With Others

- The achievement of any affiliation relies on the ability to communicate with others. Communication is essential in all relationships as it allows anyone to share their concerns, interests, and support of one another.

When two people converse in a conversation they can say many things without speaking, the tone of voice, our posture, and the expression on our face all display a message....   [tags: Communication, Nonverbal communication]
