The greatest writer of all time, G.B. 

G. B.   was an English professor from Oxford who, in the nineteenth century, became the most respected and influential person in the history of education and science.  

As a student of art and literature, he developed a deep and abiding interest in literary criticism. While in school, his teacher asked him to write a critical analysis of William Shakespeare’s plays,  

So, at the outbreak of the First World War, Sir Thomas wrote an article entitled ‘On The Influence of Language and Writing on Modern Science.’Â  

He saw the need to familiarize himself with new and fresh ideas and develop a method to analyze the two opposing sides. In doing so,  

It set in motion a process that would culminate in the creation of the present-day academic disciplines.  

The development of Critical thinking

By the end of the 19th Century, educational theory had come to be the dominant ideology in almost every country. It also gave birth to the social and political ideologies that we now recognize as integral to solving real-world problems.  

With the industrial revolution, the associated globalization of industry and the mechanization of knowledge, unprecedented revolutions were taking hold in many countries. This is the main reason why scholars have a hard Time Finding resources that can inform them on a specific subject.  

This is because there were no institutions dedicated to researching the theoretical questions that they wanted to explore. The results of their exploration depended on the kind of input data the institution got from the field. Thereafter, the findings of the research could only be seen through the eyes of the scholar. Therefore, it meant that the interpretation of the raw materials from the ground up remained highly problematic.  

Even though it might have been a yes or maybe, the reality of the situation changed the outlook of the intellectual hierarchy. At the same, it created a perspective of how the discipline should be viewed.  

Before the 1920s, few academics, including myself, owned a substantial amount of land. The means to be wealthy with the proceeds from the vast commercial interests in the form of the book, essay, and manuscript sales surpassed what the universities needed to pay for a course just for studying.  

However, it is essential to realize that the rigid position taken by the professors regarding the methodology of learning and the collection of the published works led to the laying of the foundations for progressive thought. The systematic approach to scholarly endeavor proved to be tenacious and unique in its application to the current global community.
