Research on Educational Nature and Root of Life

yanfei ZHU, Renli LIU, Mei HAN, Peng WANG, Hao ZHU, Tainian PAN


Human life is a unified collection of natural life and value life. It restores and rejuvenates the true nature of education to impact the awakening of life, so that life is full of agile images and temperaments, and also the process of human education that has real life significance. If the talents trained by education which can only repeat and accumulate knowledge and machinery, it will be a universal portrayal of the double failure of education and life. Only by tightly combining education, life, and educational life which can we create the agility of education and avoid the empty phenomenon of human spirit and life soul. The true nature of education is to restore and rejuvenate the roots of life, to establish self-awareness, to give playing to self-motivation, and so that we can constantly transcend and make perfect when human beings complete themselves.
