Pasion Philosophy of Education In today`s trend, the demand for education is getting higher and higher. Educated people are in demand all over the world. Education is certainly attributed to knowledge. In that instance we can directly conclude and realize what lies beyond are traditional understanding of education. But how then the education takes place and concepts or aspects that would help someone to be educated. Some philosophers gave concept that has a connection to education. Their concepts maybe diverse but, if we scrutinize each and every concept we may arrive to one concept that is common among them. After reading available materials, I now come to my conclusion of concept that transform the radiance of ideas to focus on one corner idea, and that is “discipline”. Plato`s discipline is for the purpose of “training the character of each citizen so that he may control his appetites, subordinating the senses of reason” (Stanford Encyclopedia).

The individual must accept obediently whatever the church declares as truth.” (A history of Philosophy). The individual is not free to follow whatever direction his reason takes him. Augustine I’ve noticed one concept that I sought to disagree and that is Authoritarian concept saying that “Truth is.
