A very good morning to one and all present here. Today, I will be giving a short speech on the topic of the importance of learning through experience.
Immanuel Kant, a well-known philosopher has said, “Experience without theory is blind, but theory without experience is mere intellectual play.”
What exactly does Kant mean by this? He means to state that while theoretical or intellectual knowledge is indeed important, it ceases to be so in the absence of experience.
Learning through experience thus becomes very important in one’s life. Experience in life teaches us many things that theoretical knowledge cannot teach us. Moreover, learning through experience leaves a lasting impression in one’s mind as it is learned not through mere memorizing of concepts but through actual understanding.
Learning through experience also is a more conventional form of learning as opposed to today’s rote learning and the mindless rat race in pursuit of marks. It will enhance learning and be more beneficial.
