Failure of internalization in modern culture book
Technical colleges traditionally were for the acquisition of skills, for training. As fertile communication lies at the heart of education, at the heart of internalization, then in the presence of such values that legitimate isolationism no education can occur. Remember Socrates' image of the teacher as a midwife bringing the mind to a living birth. This requires a trusting communication, but where communication of this sort is inherently denied by the value system, then this reinforces a powerful defiance of internalization. Existential philosophy, which permeates the post-modern culture, does seek meaning in emotional experience but repudiates those forms that arise through acts of understanding. The whole enterprise of our post-modern culture blends with the technological requirements of this age and is a very strong counter against internalization. The cultural history of the human race is a slow unfolding of potentialities, but each new age presents the culture with a crisis that it is called upon to solve.
