Organic Chemistry Principles in Context


File Size: 8.57 Mb

Description
IN THE ACADEMIC STUDY OF THE ARTS , the principles necessary to create a work of art such as a painting or a poem or a musical composition are discovered by studying the completed work. In this way the student encounters the beauty arising from the use of these principles at the very beginning, with the pleasure of this encounter stimulating the desire to understand what stands behind such an accomplishment. The method of learning of the arts is close to how we learn outside of the academic world, how a child learns from the start. We don’t learn the alphabet before we hear people speaking. We don’t learn the colors or the shapes of common objects before seeing the world around us. The wonders of sound and shape and color intrigue us and stimulate our desire to figure out what is going on and what it all means.
