Some people think that university should not provide theoretical knowledge, but to give practical training beneficial to the society. Do you agree or disagree?
Use your own experience and knowledge to support your idea.
1.Theoretical knowledge IS beneficial to the society.
a) Theory study is providing powerful tools for us to deal with the world around us as well as the body within ourselves
Physiological/medical theories enable us to understand the way our body works so that we know how to combat diseases more effectively.
Economics theory helps explain such phenomena as inflation and unemployment.
Scientists, through theoretical study in gravity and by pure calculations of the orbits of planets Uranus and Neptune, predicted the existence of the ninth planet Pluto, which was later verified by observation.
b) Theoretical findings pave ways for more advanced scientific as well as social studies.
