There are growing voices saying that personality education needs to be strengthened.

It is pointed out that the growing conflict in society is all due to the lack of personality education in schools. And there is a big fuss about teaching philosophy, history, and literature to all the students, and even educating them to emphasize the importance of filial piety.

Personality education is especially important for science and engineering students.
The concern is that the problem will be really serious if science and engineering students who will be in charge of science and technology, who will exert greater power in the future, do not have enough personality.

Instead of contributing to the development of society, scientists and engineers with science and technology in the background can become scary Frankenstein and disrupt society.
