Philosophical Methodology Assignment Help
As we know that every person has different ideologies and beliefs so it is possible that a single work can be assumed differently by different people. If we talk about common sense, we see that it can be interpreted with different meaning and different aspects by different people and with difference in the ages. (Hackney, 2009) As a child is used to interpret common sense as the knowledge that is taken for granted. Children usually thinks what they made or what they observe. Thus, I have interpreted the concept of common sense as the knowledge management that should acquire by everyone. I can quote an example for this. Once, we have some guests at our home and my mother asked the maid to bring water for them. She bought four glasses of water and served it to my mother first.
My mother told her that serve it the guests first as it is the common sense. At that time, I was around 2 years of age and interpreted common sense as the ideology of manners that are taught to everyone. This incidence suggests that the manners taught to the people or the beliefs of the people is common sense for them. But, it is not necessary that the belief that is considered as common sense for my mother is alos common sense for the maid. It describes that different people have different interpretation for common sense ideologies. (Lief, 2010) As I grew up and started attaching to the society, I realized that people consider common sense according to their social beliefs. What their society beliefs is common sense for them. Being social person, everyone has some of the other common views bad tradition that have been shared among the social group. Thus, that knowledge or the beliefs become common sense for those groups. If the people from another group does not know about that tradition or do not believe in their beliefs than they may seems not to have common sense in them according to the first group. Universally, common sense can be interpreted as the things that are done on daily basis. For example, brushing your teeth is the routine work by all the people so it is the common sense that as you got up in the morning you have to brush your teeth. (REYNOLDS, 2010)
As an adult, these concepts act as challenges for my interpretations. This is because now I consider common sense as the knowledge or we can say as the basic knowledge. We know that every literate person knows how to add the numbers so it is the common sense for the person that adding 1 in 1 is 2. Although, it is a subject knowledge but it is believed to be common sense to the people which have knowledge about this subject. In this context knowledge has become the basis for me to interpret common sense. It can be said that ideologies of common sense are different for people with different knowledge, beliefs and cultural groups.
