Arslantas, Halis Adnan
Journal of Education and Training Studies, v4 n1 p49-54 Jan 2016
Humanity passes through a period of time in which economic facts are not only determining factors on almost all activities from the behavior of partner selection to that of voting but also one of the ways to rationalize daily life. This period is a period in which the nature of materialistic world of today in parallel with the spiritual nature of human is difficult to progress without conflict. In this period, the responsibility of education for forming the basis of perception about what being human and society mean gains more importance. In this article, the realization of the individual and social function of education is considered. In the first part of the article, the mentality of performance of today's world is explained in general terms; in the second part, the possibility of growth potential and the development capacity of human spirituality against the problems resulting from financial concerns are disputed; In the final part, with the synthesis of these two parts, necessity to activate individual and social function of education in our country where millions of people behave in the way that they have financial concerns is stated.
