Below are some quotations on education. Select three of these (must be a combination from both modern and postmodern quotations) and explain each one in your own words.

Modern Quotations on Education:

1. “You go to a great school not so much for knowledge as for arts and habits; for the habit of attention, for the art of expression, for the art of assuming at a moment’s notice a new intellectual position, for the art of entering quickly into another person’s thoughts, for the habit of submitting to censure and refutation, for the art of indicating assent or dissent in graduated terms.” (Quoted in Michael Oakeshott, Rationalism in Politics)

2. “Do we want to use our colleges to produce hundreds of busy little conceptualizers, explainers and verifiers, talkers and analysis-makers at a time when the conceptualizing and analytic mind has been running wild through the world, having detached itself from the simple human virtues of love, compassion, tenderness, and empathy which it is the task of any education in sensibility to foster?” (Harold Taylor, Students without Teachers. New York: McGraw-Hill, 1969, p. 156)

3. “Education is not about self-esteem. Education is demeaning. It should be about teaching you what you don’t know, what you yet need to know, how much there is yet to do. Part of the process of education is teaching you that you are related to people who are not you, not your parents—that you are related to black runaway slaves and that you are related to suffragettes in the 19th century and that you are related to Puritans. That you are related to some continuous flow of ideas, some linkage, of which you are the beneficiary, the most recent link. The argument for bilingual education, or for teaching black children their own lingo, assumes that education is about self-esteem. My argument is that education is about teaching children to use the language of other people.” (From “The New, New World,” an interview with author Richard Rodriguez, Reason, August/ September 1994)

Postmodern Quotations on Education:

1. Michel Foucault: “It is meaningless to speak in the name of—or against—Reason, Truth, or Knowledge”

2. Andrea Dworkin: “Women have been chattels to men as wives, as prostitutes, as sexual and reproductive servants. Being owned and being fucked are or have been virtually synonymous experiences in the lives of women. He owns you; he fucks you. The fucking conveys the quality of ownership: he owns you inside out.” (Intercourse)

3. Michel Foucault: “Prison is the only place where power is manifested in its naked state, in its most excessive form, and where it is justified as moral force. … What is fascinating about prisons is that, for once, power doesn’t hide or mask itself; it reveals itself as tyranny pursued into the tiniest details; it is cynical and at the same time pure and entirely ‘justified,’ because its practice can be totally formulated within the framework of morality.” (Language, Counter-Memory, Practice)

1.If you are interested or willing to join the knowledge for arts you focus your self in one thing that you want.This art can give you a happiness do your best to get a higher position of arts.You do something that you want in your life.
2.Michel Foucault:For my understanding why do you speak if your reason,truth and knowledge is without meaningful to them.If your is not truth why do we need to waste our time to say the truth.
3. Michel Foucault:Prison they are jail if they are a mistake.Sometimes they have a power to to hide or mask their self for their protection.In prison over how many days or weeks they know their self as a man.They learn how become a friendly and being creative at the prison.

1. Modern Quotation I choose no 2!, For me the meaning of that is that We have a lot professional graduates here in our country. a degree holders and most of them are now turn in technologies that most of them are just thinking on how our country turn into a developed country. most of them are using their knowledge to change our system here in country and to change it like in western countries that lots of projects and developments are implemented and they are more on technologies that makes people become lazy that most of the people now especially those graduates forgot to become just a normal person that more on primitive way of living more on physical things are doing but yet happy.. They are spending time to work and spend time too to their family. Contented on what is existing and not searching for more...

2. Post modern no 2. The meaning of this are very deep it is that the purpose of every woman in every man is just to be own by a man who can do everything to a women or they were reflected as a slave why because a man can owned you to be come a partner, a sex partner, a baby maker and if you were owned by a man, a woman has a responsibility to give her body to a man. yes it is a "RESPONSIBILITY" of every women to make us man happy if we are married. Sex is like a food it is part or it is a nature to both partners. And if you were own by a man no one can fucked you beside to the man who owns you or either your a slut that your not contented on your partner. Because for me being fucked is not the signed of ownership nor prisoning you in a situation that no one can get out. Its a matter of loving your partner and a nature of love is having a sex and if you want your partner to respect you as a women that has a dignity show to you partner that you are respectable.

3. Postmodern no 3. Prison is the place where can a every man or prisoner can experience the real essence of the the justice why should it be follow. In this place it teaches every man the brutality of things that you have done the consequences of the things if you disobey the justice. It teaches every prisoner to practice morality and obeying the rules that was implemented in our country.

1.“You go to a great school not so much for knowledge as for arts and habits; for the habit of attention, for the art of expression, for the art of assuming at a moment’s notice a new intellectual position, for the art of entering quickly into another person’s thoughts, for the habit of submitting to censure and refutation, for the art of indicating assent or dissent in graduated terms.” (Quoted in Michael Oakeshott, Rationalism in Politics)
=The quotation explains that we go to an institution or school not only to acquire knowledge but for the arts and habits. For, we are taught in school not only for the theories but also for different experiences that school can bring. It is the school where we can have changing of ideas with teachers, administrators, classmates and other peers, to be blame and have a chance to prove yourself, and to point out some agreeable and non agreeable opinion.
3. “Education is not about self-esteem. Education is demeaning. It should be about teaching you what you don’t know, what you yet need to know, how much there is yet to do. Part of the process of education is teaching you that you are related to people who are not you, not your parents—that you are related to black runaway slaves and that you are related to suffragettes in the 19th century and that you are related to Puritans.

My argument is that education is about teaching children to use the language of other people.” (From “The New, New World,” an interview with author Richard Rodriguez, Reason, August/ September 1994)
=It explains that Education is not about self-esteem because for the author, Education is about proper manner. Knowledge is not only an indication that a person is well educated but also the values that will speak before his personality. Education helped every individual to realize what an Education really meant, through the virtues or the good manner it holds and posses. Every individual must cope with the changes or innovative ways that will enhance personal attachment not only for other individuals but for you as a master of yourself. The author just want to emphasize that we must not isolate ourselves with our own culture but to adapt other things that will help us to be more expressive and creative in any moment that we might go out from the shell where we hide our identity.

1. Michel Foucault: “It is meaningless to speak in the name of—or against—Reason, Truth, or Knowledge”
=It would be useless for us to speak in the name or against reason, truth or even in knowledge for we cannot force anyone to believe what we believe and also we are not in the right position to contradict or to question what knowledge a person has, what kind of truth he believed in, and what kind of reason he/she will be uttering. Everyone has unique personality wherein every individual is not the same in thoughts, in words and deeds.

Modern Quotation # 2. In Harold Taylor’s book, Students without Teachers, I think he’s challenging the academe of its venture in producing scholars whose main fascination is plainly to analyze, conceptualize and verify knowledge and data. He believes that the fundamental task of education doesn’t only focus on these cognitive abilities but it also needs to cultivate the mental outlook or the attitude of the individual concerning his simple human virtues. These two must go hand-in-hand to be able to perform better.


Modern Quotation # 3. As I understood what Richard Rodriguez was trying to point out in his interview regarding education is that education is not merely about possessing the confidence or being an asset to the academia but it must submissively acknowledge the external factors that contribute to the absolute essence of one’s education. Rodriguez gave emphasis to human’s need for intercommunication that one must learn to accept that he is related as well as a huge part of the human race so as of nature and that he must learn to understand the things that are yet to discover. Education is teaching the youngsters to use other people’s language. Through this endeavor, it enlightens the child with the significance of human relations to education for better understanding of the knowledge being imparted.


Post-Modern Quotation # 1. I think what Michael Focault‘s famous line means is that it’s impossible for anyone to explain or define further to contradict or go against with reason, truth or knowledge. Being an advocate of post-modernism, Foucoult firmly believed in anti-reason, anti-logic and anti-intelligibility. He pointed out that reason is the ultimate language of madness, anyone can say and do whatever one wants and feels like doing and saying. No constraint, no guidance. No one can fully explain knowledge simply because it’s complex. No one can justify the truth because it is biased. No one can negate reason because it is subjective.

1. For me what Harold Taylor had said means, schools specifically colleges are capable of producing successful men/women who are doing well on their own field, loaded with the right knowledge and competent enough in their own work but lacks the love for their job and the ones who benefitted from their work. People work mainly because of money, fame and other reasons but they didn’t really feel the passion for work. One example I can give are the nurses. Nurses are said to be compassionate in their job, specially the Filipino nurses. Bu nowadays some things have changed. The TLC or what we call the tender love and care was slowly diminishing. Patients emotional needs are now being neglected, therapeutic touch and communication are not practiced, that’s why some patients didn’t feel the real comfort of being taken care of. It is also the same with the other work. School ought to learn about the subject or the course but also what virtue they must possess in their job.

2. For me Andrea Dworkin’s thought was quite harsh and judgmental but still has a sense. It’s sort of harsh and judgmental because we cannot say that all men sees and treats his wife/woman like that. But has a point because in our time some women who are in a relationship which are not married are being used by their man which is not acceptable especially in the Bible context. It seems like it’s an expectation that once you are in a relationship one must be committed and be loyal but not to the point that you will be like married couples. As for married couples, I think its normal to be your mans property and be “used” since its legal as long as women are treated properly and with respect. Moreover the Bible said that wives must submit themselves unto their husband, but only to some extent.

3. For me Richard Rodriguez is emphasizing that education must have a very wide variety of lessons for students to have a chance to learn. It should not only focus on traditional teaching or lesson that is always the same. Students must learn the things that are new to him, things that cannot be ordinarily learned in the walls of a room, and things that are not innate in their country, culture, and environment. Education must arouse the student’s interest and mind on things that he/she may encounter in the future. On the things that are hidden to him, but can be discovered. Education must be the bridge to the other country and its people and must fill the gap that we have with them. So that students don’t just settle on what they are set to know but to further search on what other things they are yet to explore.

“The new, new world”, an interview with author RichardnRodriguez, reason, Richard indicates here that “education is not about self-steem. Education is demeaning”. As of my own opinion with this statement, Education was not only for the ideas being taught in an institution like school. It is the learning in society or even the world you are living. Learning is every time you encounter experiences. From those, your ideas and thoughts meet to explain why things happen.
For this interview with Richard together with Reason, education in terms of curriculum and structure would be a better form of education like Rodrigues have. Example the use of English language in classroom, because that is what the society tend to use. As a citizen you should go beyond the mile of your knowledge of language. Learn to learn others language. The more language you know the more interaction with other.

Being owned and being fucked are or have been virtually synonymous experiences in the lives of women. He owns you; he fucks you. The fucking conveys the quality of ownership: he owns you inside out.” (Intercourse)
Women were the bearer of all human in the word in which we are existed. Without women, there would be no mother. Of course, women plays a very big role in mans whole life. As Andrea Dworkin quotes, “Women have been chattels to men as wives, as prostitutes, as a sexual and reproductive servants.” She simply say that without women, no intercourse. Oh, maybe there is but no enjoyment. Also, being a wife was not that easy for a woman. You will be holding the responsibility to serve your men (husband) as active as you can, you will be his “servant” in all as he wish. If you love him, be faithful to serve him.
1. Michel Foucault: “It is meaningless to speak in the name of—or against—Reason, Truth, or Knowledge”
I do agree with Michel Foucault statement that “it is meaningless to speak in the name of—or against reason, truth, or knowledge. For there would be no sense for you to argument with truth, which has been the truth. No sense to argument with reason, which has been the reason of someone, you can never question it. There is no sense to argument against the knowledge of the others. Their knowledge is they have that you do not have. You both have different way of thinking. You will never have the right to speak against knowledge of other.
