Reading the interview with Professor Stephen Walt I found some points where I read ,stop and read them again. I don’t like to tell that the others were less important but the topics like building our career and relation practice vs theory or online social networks and blogging I found more interesting because I felt them more familiar to me .
The life teach us that there is a relation between the practice and theory .Why ? Without theory we are in the middle of nowhere .If we have some written rules we know from where to start and where to go .They don’t describe the way we should go but they define the start point. In different words we can get in touch with all the policy rules and we can justify the acts that they do.
Building your career without some theoretical knowledge is like standing with folded arms. I can give a simple personal example. I am an economist and I can work for example in a bank .And If a were a graduate doctor I can work in a Bank , but I will need much more time to get involvedand to find out the key questions related with my job. It is the same with all the job position. We must read , learn and get interested inmore extensive themes and increase brain capacity. We can not only rely on our everyday’s problems , we must start reading more far than that.
"My general advice to students at the beginning of their careers is to focus on big and important questions that are likely to be of enduring interest, rather than on today’s fad, and be prepared to work really hard for a decade or more to establish yourself
When we talk about the
social media networks we talk about really important outlets which can help us read
about globe problems but also are canals which can’t keep secrets .They can discover it
in every moment. Also there are is not always
the true that is published .
I found a little relation between blogs and books .I can say that the blogs are like short Books .They contain personal meanings and ideas also advices which can help us in our lives. They can’t be like books and can’t change them but offer different topics and have similar role like books. But for us is good to keep read old and search for more interesting books.
