In whatever subject, history, philosophy, literature, or political science and arts, the notion of good is despised, shaping young adults to be filled with cynicism and disdain. As for practical politics, political science, as we know it, the spiritual is put aside. Amongst children and adults, the truth that talent has nothing to do with morality is commonplace. Talent in the narrow sense of the term has become the sole criterion for personal advancement and virtue is not taken into account in evaluating persons particularly in educational institutions. A child who for instance sees glorified cruelty and ambition in history lessons, selfishness, pride and vanity in literature lesson can not come to admire goodness. Hence confusion prevails. This paper intends to demonstrate how knowledge needs to bring back bridges between perfect beauty, perfect truth and perfect justice, between science and a sense of absolute.
