In today's modern world, people are too busy to spend a time for learning history. The popular belief is that the knowledge and ideas from the past do not fit to the modern rapidly changing life which dictates its own way of thinking and acting. As for me, the knowledge of the history of a mankind is absolutely necessary for each modern person who wants to reach the highest level of career, personal, and social life.

It is no question that world history is very rich and has answers for almost any modern question even though some people consider the historical approaches to problems solving a bit obsolete. This is particularly true for that countries which are building nowadays the democratic society and market economy; the way that had been passed by modern post-industrialized countries. Despite of the fact, that each single nation has it's specific singularities, there is some common rules of development of people's minds and country itself that lead to the high economic and culture level of the citizen and development of whole country economy.

As far as I can see, the popular attitude toward the past learning is a result of not perfect educational system. In fact, learning a history at the school students pay the basic attention to memorize dates and names, but unfortunately not priceless lessons of history. Those lessons and precedents from the past could be an excellent explanation of all processes we can observe in the modern world; moreover, they are able to show people appropriate solutions of almost all today's problem.

In conclusion, it is no doubt, that learning the past is an essential part of modern educational system; however, the way of studying history should be reconsidered toward the learning of significant lessons of history and use them to finding perfect ways out from difficulties of modern life.
