THE VALUE OF EDUCATION - Part 2 : This is the second seminar in a two-part seminar series Other events...
Intelligence is acquired knowledge of a particular subject or subjects. But being knowledgeable in no way renders your intellect clear to think, reason and decide on matters pertaining to life. A person could be highly intelligent, yet impractical in day to day living. For example, a scientist may be brilliant with respect to science, but could possess a weak intellect, incapable of controlling his own mind. This weakness could result in him being short-tempered, stressed, an alcoholic, depressed, etcetera. Therefore, the value of education lies in developing and strengthening one's inner personality to be able to handle life's challenges with ease.
Speaker(s) Sunanda Leelaram is a philosopher, from India, and the daughter-disciple of the internationally eminent philosopher Swami Parthasarathy. Her clear and powerful presentation of ancient wisdom in contemporary thought has been acclaimed by prestigious organisations including the Young Presidents Organisation and many leading universities around the world. Sunanda will be speaking at UWA on the 10th - 11th May 2011
Location Alexander Lecture Theatre, Car Park 3 Hackett Drive, University of WA
