EDUCATION (LEARNING VIRTUES) VS PRACTICE (DOING VIRTUOUS ACTS)
We believe on education as important in changing lives. We love to hear good words,
nice examples, nourishing stories of good people, and mostly hearing stories of lives
of saints and heroes. THIS IS PART OF LEARNING VIRTUES. Plato the teacher of
Aristotle had always emphasized to his students in the early Greek civilization (around
rd Cent/4th Cent BCE), “TO KNOW THE GOOD MAKES ONE DO THE GOOD.
IGNORANCE OF THE GOOD MAKES ONE DOES EVIL.?” Stories of good life tell us what
is it to do the good.
HOWEVER, we are also hearing from ARISTOTLE’S SIDE, the student of Plato, THAT
KNOWLEDGE OF THE GOOD DOES NOT GUARANTEE OF DOING THE GOOD. FOR
TODAY’S EXPERIENCE, many professionals, intellectuals, good leaders, mostly
educated individuals (including teachers) from all folks of life have committed crimes,
immorality, mistakes, and even violate the call of good life. HENCE, no guarantee of
moral life thru education. WE NEED HABITUATiON—repeated practice of good life to
become MORAL PERSON FIRST….thus practice, practice and practice of moral action/s
daily all of our lives.
WHAT IS IT TO BE MORAL? OR ETHICAL?
1. DO YOU ADHERE PLATO’S ARGUMENT ABOVE? OR DO YOU ADHERE ARISTOTLE?
2. IF YOU ARE ARISTOTLE, HOW WILL YOU CHANGE THE ATTITUDE OF THE CHILD
USING THE PRINCIPLE IN VIRTUE ETHICS CALLED HABITUATIONS. What is its
importance today? What do you think, if everyone is virtuous, will it make a difference
for people in society? Comment on this…
