country or to aid nations. Further development is required periodically as households.Introduction Education is the art of shaping the mind to becoming whatever you would like to produce for that household. . community. countries and nations may vary with their expectations when it comes to the very young becomes adolescent while starting to transform into an adult called manhood. communities. I will attempt to give a clear description of these stages in life and how education practices have not changed much since the era of early Greek philosophers to the western philosophers.

every day we sit and dream. these domains can be considered as an educational activities which were developed by Benjamin Bloom (1956). and have continued throughout history. I believe the ability to learn can be consider a benediction placed on all living organism that inhibit and flourish the world. as it is a significant factor to acquiring knowledge and surviving in world. with the addition of technology that we shall continue to enhance our education. which are the cognitive. encourage morals and values while . Man have become competent throughout centuries by experiences and maintaining a very spiritual life. These domains were used by man during the era of Christ. My Philosophy For many centuries mankind have been challenged to learn.Definition of philosophy: Love of wisdom Vision statement Since the beginning of time man has been educated continuously by the use of different techniques. However in today’s world we continue to deploy the very same methods. affective and psychomotor domain. making all dreams become a reality with the use of pedagogy. that is often gained formally or informally that renders changes that is relatively permanent There are three types of learning domains that dictates how and when mankind learn. as man was able to recite the bible to gather a congregation of listeners.

Plato argued that society would be of a holistic value if children were allowed at a tender age to become discipline physically in areas such as art. which was the same view as Plato. Philosopher’s Support Philosophers have contributed directly or indirectly over centuries in the molding of the educational philosophy adapted by mankind. while other have become leaders in the society. Aristotle had a concept that any child born with a deformity physically should be destroyed by the state subsequently to that the state should also play an integral role in marriage as to achieve what would be determined by Aristotle . Plato is such a philosopher whose theory on the philosophy of education was that of a Christian republic controlled by the state. Counter-Argument Aristotle philosophy was that education should be determined by the state should be a matter of concern for the state. A collective approach to the educational philosophy can be applied to institutions that would later enhance the type of citizen we produce in this era. This theory was proven by Plato as we have already began to see that some young men have become skilled tradesmen. some protectors of the land. skills and music. this type of action would produce a system that nurture the intellectual capabilities of mankind for various positions in a community and country.displaying the many phenomena that can be achieved from physically teaching the multitude of persons that may have been encountered daily.

coordination. such as feelings. This includes the recall or recognition of specific facts. skilled tradesman or leader in the community or nation Plato and Aristotle truly believed that the state should be responsible for the training of our young men when it pertained to education. In this present century of which I belong. procedures. The psychomotor includes physical movement. Young people learn at different developmental stages. motivations. and can be used for personal success and happiness. and physical appearance. or techniques in execution. each stage can be placed into a domain such as the cognitive domain which involves knowledge and the development of intellectual skills. however mankind had decided in that era that education was for the elite. and attitudes . appreciation. and use of the motor-skill areas. Development of these skills requires practice and is measured in terms of the stronger genetic that can provide the state with who would become a protector of the land. and concepts that serve in the development of intellectual abilities and skills. therefore nothing has change from that era to this century. distance. enthusiasms. The affective domain includes the manner in which we deal with things emotionally. procedural patterns. precision. values. the same belief is carried out as it can be determined narrowly by your ethnic grouping.
