My conception of education
What education should develop is the capacity for apprehension of variety, together with what
we may call a concern or care for the what one wishes to learn about. These two pieces put together constitute what may naturally be termed an aesthetic stance towards the world; one may think about the way in which all songs sound alike when one is not interested in a certain
music genre; but were one to dive into the genre, he or she would gradually start to recognise the variety and richness of it, while inevitably gaining appreciation. Conversely, if one begins to appreciate a genre, he will thereby also be more and more able to differentiate and be critical of its many facets, independently of whether one is conscious of it or not. However even more fun, once one has had an insight into a subject matter, is to do something with it: if one gets creative and makes something imbued with meaning then one has not aesthetics, but art.
These broad definitions of aesthetics and art can be applied very naturally the rich world of mathematics, forget the numbers and forget formulas repeated dozens of time, put aside your preconceptions and let us embark in more personalised journeys together. Nothing prevents us from starting from homework and go through it in our very own way of course.
