Philosophers' philosophies, thinkers, teachers' teachings weren't teaching man's difference from wild animals he was behaving as.
" ‘I was an ape' you say -or amphibian And now?! Are you not, now, ‘man'!? "
Failings were of philosophers, eastern and western thinkers', educational philosophy, teachers, teaching -in teaching values.
Were affecting educational philosophies and educational philosophers, educators and education, teachers and teaching, philosophy and science, knowledge and wisdom, biases of those who thrived on ignorance and sought to unpopularise each other's kind to masses with many concerns or under pain of ridicule or other injury unable not to believe or accept as told, by e.g. supporting ‘the monkey trial' or ‘discovering' Piltdown man, by abusing trust and innocence of man in bigotry or ignorance ~in teaching, educational philosophy, educational philosophers, educators, teachers too readily adopted viewpoint applications of not educators into philosophy of education, teaching -even in education, teaching of young minds.
Ethical scepticism in philosophy by some philosophers was a concern of daily life in philosophy of education to educators and teachers in teaching -through philosophies of education educators and teachers, teaching, affected society's learned behavior ~whether ontology, philosophy, philosophers, could explain or not transcendental, whether man lacked mental capacity for transcendental as in some philosophers' philosophies or not, some educational philosophies' and educators' suggestion that ‘truth' could be only scientifically known psychology's increased acceptance of philosophy's and philosophers' ‘mind', cosmology's agreement with eastern and western philosophy and great philosophers on a ‘mysterious force', made doubtful; science's, ontology's, philosophy's great philosophers' not fully understanding transcendental did not justify educators', teachers' deeming it untruth in epistemology, education, teaching.
Weren't enlightened genuine mystic philosophers, while not sole arbiters -rightly, without effort to convince to less indirect, more, assistance to science and philosophy, perhaps defeating object of understandable reluctance, possibly extreme, as increased resources of seekers to monopolise knowledge harmfully to, or under guise of it abuse, man?
Good considered some eastern and western philosophies and philosophers man, bad other philosophies and philosophers; while differed philosophers' knowledge and wisdom and philosophy, logic in philosophy on man's behavior (irrespective of varying teaching of history by educators and teachers) suggested that man was neither good nor bad but impressionable ~society's imperfections contributed (also through ethics of some philosophers and philosophy, biased philosophies of education, teaching of and by educators, teachers) to man's suffering alone -this arose from influences ignorant of man's morality not being only about society's retribution and assuming man irrational and neglecting his being regulated also by intrinsic desires and confusing strength with power and ignoring most philosophy and philosophers supported by history that man, his rationality always overcoming temporary hysteria (when he represented wicked abuse and ignorance) and most powerful, whenever considered nature or extent of retribution or neglect of intrinsic values intolerable, always (not necessarily through educators and teachers of morals, or education, teaching) changed what he disliked.
"Continues suffering, and continues wait But so long as tomorrows there are, hope is great"
Philosophy, philosophers on ethics, morals, educators, teachers, often forgot that, ‘bad' everywhere in minority, while man's passion made it impossible always to ‘turn other cheek' and e.g. his various laws extended mitigating circumstances to crimes of passion though cruel when by his biological constitution unchangeable by education he was in fright without flight, his morality included a sense of proud fairness and desire not to fail himself or loved ones by behaving badly -but for abuse or ignorance he preferred being thought well of to being thought ill of.
‘Truth' of philosophy and philosophers, in practice -whether personal or (and especially) impersonal, whether experienced or presupposed, two kinds of existed: truth global, truth environmental; both were good, essential in teaching, education. Truth global was truth known as perceived -or through science, and truth accepted inductively or deductively by logic of philosophers and philosophy -man's ‘understanding' ~man everywhere, always, desiring to enjoy more, better, including satisfaction of his intellectual curiosities by metaphysics, aspired to this -sometimes with biases of philosophers and philosophy or of educators and teachers in education and teaching. Truth environmental was that which, for reasons affected by various factors -e.g. resources, as distinct from or as variations of truth global, some of man's aspirations and behaviour had to be based on for better and more enjoyment in his immediate environment of avoiding society's retribution and of extrinsic and intrinsic rewards -through philosophy and philosophers, educators and teachers, this suffered in teaching, education (mostly of history and in metaphysics) much bias. In philosophy philosophers on values, in education educators and teachers, had to balance these truths in teaching and education of educators, teachers, in teaching pupils.
Philosophers and philosophy of education and teaching, history of teaching and education, showed bias in epistemology, science, philosophy, incorrect knowledge in teaching and education of educators and teachers, through educators, teachers in formal teaching, about nature and man ~when cultural philosophy of education and teaching ignored another's cultural philosophy of education and teaching -and attitude, and was not balanced environmental truth with global truth, that did not change e.g. adultery also in laws of Austria [until 1997] and over 20 states of USA being a crime nor extent of unacceptability of pre-marital relationships no less than in Turkey being in Greece, but gave rise by abuse or ignorance to extreme speculations also through philosophers, philosophy, educators, teachers, education, teaching, causing leanings globally undesirable, injurious to both society and individual.
