• As academics, are we too afraid of being overly optimistic? Is there a culture of pessimism fueled by accusations of sentimentality and romanticization that paralyzer discourse?
Nowadays academic education breeds the young student to perceive world critical and ask them to find the best way to be bias and reflect on the process, but not to get attached to the object of the research. As the master student, I am taking part in this process, where positive attitude or any kind of empathy is judged as weak and lacking professional glaze or evaluation. “Be critical!” is the motto of contemporary researcher. The boundaries, like ethics and objective perception, are escalating as the backbones of the good research. There is the reason of this. The history of academic studies created the gulf between what is scientific and what is not, they put the splinter in the concepts of trustworthy and doubtful. The positive attitude and passion sometimes is compared or could to be confused with naïve that is not want result in the research.
