Positive philosophy and the next generation

The human beings learn almost daily from family, society and the state; the subconscious mind also practices that learning, which one day applies to that ideal in the real life of the next generation.

Positive philosophy and the next generation

World Philosophy Day is being celebrated like every year. The international organization UNESCO was the first to take the initiative to celebrate this day.

As per the rules, this day is celebrated on the third Thursday of November. As such, November 18 2021 the World Philosophy Day. Basically the values of every culture and individual are essential for the development of positive thinking in mankind. Since mankind is recognized as the greatest in the world, there is no substitute for real human practice.

What we see in the general sense, the way we see it or see it positively or negatively, is literally philosophy to the common man. But according to thinkers around the world, the Bengali synonym of English philosophy is "love of knowledge". Therefore, it is obvious that the study of common and fundamental questions about the existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind and language of the individual is "philosophy" in the overall sense. By cultivating these, they are recognized as "philosophers".

Philosophy is not just an institutional discipline; rather, seemingly every human being in human civilization is somehow considered a "philosopher", because, nowadays, almost everyone spends the busiest time with his world, life and philosophy. In both the institutional and the non-institutional spheres, every human being grows in their own way of thinking.

The human beings learn almost daily from family, society and the state; The subconscious mind also practices that learning, which one day applies to that ideal in the real life of the next generation. In this way, his/ her automatic values take place in the heart of other human being.

Through a "positive philosophy", family, society and even the state can reach the pinnacle of development. In the same way, good dialogue, intercultural dialogue can also stimulate a nation to the highest level. A positive philosophy helps us build a more tolerant, more respectful society. We also believe that celebrating "World Philosophy Day" is one of the ways to pay worship to our language, culture, literature and patriotism! Since we are intelligent people, we have to work collectively through thought and expression. Let us all be convinced to build a beautiful nation.

In the evolution of time we may one day be lost; in the evolution of time, the memories will become history that day! Will our next generation remember today’s arrangement? Will today's event testify to the successors that day? If we can visualize positive philosophy, it can be hoped surely!

Today is the perfect time to learn from history. Just as Hitler started World War II because of his fierce nationalism, so did the philosophers R. M. Hayer and Bertrand Russell, who thought positively about saving mankind from a war-torn state, and propagated the idea of a world government to liberate mankind. That is why they are still admired all over the world.

We know that true knowledge is a prerequisite for peace. As a result, a person is behaviourally restrained. If this knowledge is present in every human being, then the world community will be peaceful. According to the Greek philosopher Socrates, ‘Knowledge is virtue and virtue is knowledge.’ Knowledge is virtue and virtue is knowledge. If a man is wise, he cannot keep himself away from good deeds. On the other hand, according to the scientist Einstein, if people want to live in peace, then a strong organization is very important, which everyone will be obliged to listen to. And this requires proper leadership, honest intentions and the support of the masses, which is possible only through positive philosophy.

Overall, the world has advanced with unprecedented success in science and technology; however, unrest, instability, injustice, terrorism, violence, immorality, insecurity have not diminished at all. The teaching and practice of philosophy can liberate people from all these. The philosophy of life, ethics, humanity, aesthetics, rationality and mindfulness can liberate the world from various crises and problems and give mankind the search for the desired goal. So, no matter what profession we are in our personal life, it seems to be essential to practice positive philosophy. Because, only positive philosophy can show us the way to the truth! No doubt, the hands of positive philosophers will create a peace-loving society! Let's move on to the next generation. May World Philosophy Day be successful.
