Picture a circle, divided into 3 equal parts, these 3 roads, Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric, when used in
that specific order, repetitively, with active learning engaged… produces ever increasing degrees of certainty. If you rotate this circle, and progress it horizontally, it creates a line of repeating steps, Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric, Grammar, Logic, Rhetoric, etc. and this is a comprehensive decision making process. It is the process used to deceive all of us to lock our own minds early in life, as being deprived ofthis simple natural reflection of the human learning process, we accept whatever feels emotionally pleasant as truth, and that does not compute, if you’ll excuse the irony.
Critical thinking cannot be effectively taught in a curriculum, as it is a skill which results from the processof thinking, and learning, and is driven by the grammar, logic, and rhetoric cycle of observation, thought,and action. The purpose of grammar is to bring initial and consistent order to a body of knowledge.
The purpose of logic is to extract understanding from the body of knowledge. Rhetoric is the cogent explanation of that body of knowledge. If done effectively, this is known as teaching. When one realizes that they desire to change their environment, either as recognition of a problem or the inspiration for a new creation or improvement, the learning process is necessary. Oct 6

Unschooling is a range of educational philosophies and practices surrounding the primary belief that education is a greater undertaking than schooling. Unschooling places little emphasis on traditional school curriculum and encourages children to learn through their natural life experiences including play , game play, household responsibilities, personal interests and curiosity, work experience, travel, books, elective classes, family, mentors, and social interaction . Unschooling encourages exploration of activities initiated by the children themselves, believing that the more personal learning is, the more meaningful, well-understood and therefore useful it is to the child. Differing from conventional schooling, unschooling questions the usefulness of standard curricula , conventional grading methods, and other features of traditional schooling in maximizing the education of each unique child.
In modern psychology , cognitive dissonance is the feeling of discomfort when simultaneously holding two or more conflicting cognitions : ideas, beliefs, values or emotional reactions. In a state of dissonance, people may sometimes feel "disequilibrium": frustration, hunger, dread, guilt, anger, embarrassment, anxiety, etc. [ 1 ] The phrase was coined by Leon Festinger in his 1956 book When Prophecy Fails , which chronicled the followers of a UFO cult as reality clashed with their fervent belief in an impending apocalypse. [ 2 ] [ 3 ] Festinger subsequently (1957) published a book called A Theory of Cognitive Dissonance in which he outlines the theory. Cognitive dissonance is one of the most influential and extensively studied theories in social psychology.
Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg, Stockholm Stockholm syndrome , or capture–bonding , is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them. These feelings are generally considered irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, who essentially mistake a lack of abuse from their captors for an act of kindness. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] The FBI 's Hostage Barricade Database System shows that roughly 27% of victims show evidence of Stockholm syndrome. [ 3 ] Stockholm syndrome can be seen as a form of traumatic bonding , which does not necessarily require a hostage scenario, but which describes “strong emotional ties that develop between two persons where one person intermittently harasses, beats, threatens, abuses, or intimidates the other.” [ 4 ] One commonly used hypothesis to explain the effect of Stockholm syndrome is based on Freudian theory.
