What Are The Characteristics Of Idealism
Human beings share in that overriding spirituality or intellectuality, but in a limited way. Human life is striving for and in search of the supreme goodness and truth that exists in God or the Absolute. Idealists believe then that each human being is essentially spiritual or intellectual. The person’s spirit or mind is the most important, irreducible part of a human being.
I agree with the notion that a person’s mind or spirit is the most important, complex part of a human being. Humans are either guided by their spirit in a quest to become more like the higher power or their minds in a quest to understand as much as they can to become better individuals, striving for perfection. Humans thirst after knowledge while simultaneously learning how to become better beings. This exemplifies the saying, “The more you know, the better you grow.”
