Merits of attending liberal arts faculties such as the Faculty of Letters, the Faculty of Humanities, and the College of Liberal Arts Why do people study liberal arts?
Learning in the Faculty of Letters is not good for the country
In the past, there was a question on Chibukuro (a Japanese question posting site) to the effect that “going to the Faculty of Letters etc. will not benefit Japan.” There is almost no doubt that in science faculties such as engineering and science and engineering, you can do jobs that are easy to do for society and to have high-paying jobs without having trouble with work. It is a well-known fact that even if you graduate from the Faculty of Letters, you will have a hard time finding a job, and even if you can get a job, the salary and treatment will be inferior to that of the Faculty of Engineering. However, this does not mean that “there is no point in going to the Faculty of Letters.”
Certainly, if you study Dante’s Divine Comedy, for example, and gain a deep knowledge, it will not support the Italian economy, nor will you become a good politician who will play a central role in the country. Even if you acquire really deep knowledge, such as a scholar studying Umberto Eco, such a job is not required much, only a small percentage of people will be able to get a job that makes use of that expertise. And unfortunately, that knowledge will not support a country’s collapsed economy, or improve the quality of life of its citizens by creating innovative services.
Commonalities between the Faculty of Letters and the “Twitter Boilerplate”
That doesn’t mean that what you learn in the Faculty of Letters will never be wasted. Rather, it will enrich everyday life in various parts closer to you than the knowledge of the Faculty of Engineering. That said, I will explain how that knowledge, which does not increase salaries or create groundbreaking services, is not in vain.
At least on Twitter in Japan, there is a boilerplate called “copy and paste.” And by transforming the boilerplate sentence to match current affairs etc., it is possible to create a sentence that can be said to be interesting.
I told my wife about the nanaco reform.
My wife breaks down crying all of a sudden.
I’m sorry, I can’t afford luxury goods anymore.
I will tell my children that they will not be able to buy toys because they will not have a salary from now on.
Some people live in nanaco. I will never forgive 7-Eleven.@kamakirizamurai
This boilerplate is about a service used by a Japanese convenience store called n anaco. This sentence is popularly known as “the wife who breaks down crying instantly”. This garnered a lot of laughter and sympathy on Twitter, resulting in many modified tweets. For example, it is like this.
I told my wife about Rakuten Mobile. My wife breaks down crying all of a sudden. I’m sorry, I can’t do rapid-fire guns anymore. I will tell my child that from now on, the communication fee will be raised, so they will not be able to buy toys. There are also people who live on 1GB0 yen. I will never forgive Hiroshi Mikitani.@Mi_Sakura353
This is the story of a Japanese mobile phone carrier called Rakuten Mobile. And since the story of Rakuten Mobile became a hot topic, this copy and paste was modified to bring more laughter. And, of course, if you don’t know this copy and paste, you can’t modify it, and if you don’t know this copy and paste, you may not be able to laugh because you think, “What are you talking about?”
The Significance of Studying Liberal Arts
That is the significance of education. When you’re educated, you can laugh and empathize with more. For example, you may be able to answer more correctly on a quiz show, understand more about the culture and history of the old days, or understand more content by reading a book. If you learn a foreign language, you will be able to know the etymology and origin of words, and your understanding of the language will be deepened. If you study jurisprudence, you will be able to understand the mechanisms of law that support us at the foundation of society, and you will be able to learn about interesting judicial precedents. In the Faculty of Psychology, you can not only learn the characteristics and theories of human behavior and apply it to interpersonal communication, but also help you understand the feelings of others. Liberal arts faculties are often referred to as liberal arts, but the essence of them is to “learn liberal arts.”
Again, knowing the liberal arts doesn’t mean you can get a good job, and many will end up doing work in fields that have nothing to do with what you learned in college. However, all I want to say is that you can truly enjoy the details of everyday life and be emotionally enriched. In fact, you will realize that it is the most familiar and useful academic discipline in real life until you acquire that knowledge. Life becomes richer,
You can hone your sensibility with a rich vocabulary
For example, a person who can feel “pretty, healthy blooming and dignified” will feel more than a person who sees a beautiful flower and thinks “it is beautiful”. And by exporting it in the form of words, you will be able to better understand its object (in this case, “flower”). It’s easy to say, “He’s stupid,” but what’s stupid about him, what’s missing from him, how stupid… If you can express it, your sensibilities will be honed more and you will have a richer way of exporting emotions. For example, software that can only output in PDF format and supports j pg format, p ng format, D OCX format In the software that you have, the latter is more needed and will be able to provide a better user experience. And liberal arts such as the Faculty of Letters, while not practical, are sure to enrich your life, and should never be underestimated.
Why study liberal arts?
The answer, which I have already written here, is “to increase the sensitivity of life and lead a richer life.”
