The training is based on the following pedagogical principles:

  • You must go exploring to acquire new ideas - and to explore further to form better ideas.
  • You must get close to the things you want to learn about, the closer you get - the more you learn.
  • Together with your fellow students you must be the driving force behind everything- in order to learn much, the teacher's tricks won’t be enough, and your life is too important for that.
  • You should be forewarned- once you build up momentum you’ll want to do more and more, the deeper you dig into a question, the more you’ll want to know. There is much work in this but you’ll avoid being superficial and half-awake.
  • It isn’t possible to learn everything in the classroom- like the tip of an iceberg, perhaps only one tenth will be acquired in a classroom, and the rest comes later.
  • Only Adam was alone in the world- the rest of us are here together.
  • The things you learn should be put to use as soon as possible- so that others may learn from you, and you will learn these things twice as well when you teach them to others.
  • You must be mobile to encounter many things- otherwise things come to a halt. Even though your eyes may be popping out of your head, from just one place your vision is limited.
  • The above applies to the teachers as well.
