Should we be taught to eternally study?
Lifelong learning is surely a habit worth pursuing. It is especially difficult to muster the energy to self-learn after school has beaten all enthusiasm for learning out of its pupils. To learn for the sake of doing rather than for the sake of a test.
How long should this last? What should we study?
Seneca would say:
“You should keep learning as long as you are ignorant, - even to the end of your life” and himself quotes a proverb: “As long as you live, keep learning how to live.”
