Modern Idealism: Everything You Need to Know

Modern idealism was introduced by two leading thinkers who lived not too far far from each other on the map of time. Both men, Rene Descartes and George Berkeley suggested that there are two realms of reality, the first being the physical realm and the second being the world of the mind or the world of perception.

Unlike similar philosophies which emphasize the development of critical thinking skills, modern idealism puts just as much emphasis on character development. Its aim in asking questions about reality is to seek the best moral path to take. It approaches education by helping students break down the world we live in and, through the understanding of various parts, help them develop an understanding of the whole. They do this without sacrificing the student’s standard curriculum-based education.
