Moments Of Humanity Or The Abduction Of A Genius

In his stellar hour of humanity the German author Stefan Zweig describes a fascinating some of the moments where the course of history was changed. The composition of Handel’s Messiah, the night that la Marseillaise, Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo or the failure of Scott in his race for the conquest of the North Pole, will think are just some of the stories rich in impressions, highly illustrative and very educational. In them the protagonist is the human being, the circumstances surrounding it and how manage to combine them leaving behind an indelible trail. As Ortega y Gasset said, the human being is man and his circumstances. British Journal of Educational Technology understands that this is vital information. And that is exactly how Zweig presents us. What probably attracts more attention however is that none of the mentioned characters is really aware of the historical significance that is taking place at the same time.

Zweig presents them to a certain extent as tools of Providence. However it cannot be denied that almost every one of them is marked by an obsession, an obsession, a tenacity, hard to find among the common denominator of people. Could it be that one of the requirements to invoke historic changes? There are different ways lead to the assimilation of knowledge by the student in modern pedagogy. According to the modern terminology is the so called induction, deduction, transduction and finally the abduction object of our interest in these moments. The abduction defines the moment in which a tireless research scientist manages to finally discover that last link that was missing or where that musician opinionated, in a moment of inspiration divine, manages to combine notes masterfully in such a way that even subsequent generations so admire with reverence, that moment in which the painter conquers immortality capturing on canvas much more than what we can see with a glance. In short: Is the cry of Eureka (I have found it) of Archimedes in the bathtub.
