Modern life is so different than old times and a few people argue that the challenges we face nowadays are complicated and if we try to handle them with references to the past experiences will just bring more ambiguity than clarity. While a group of people contradict with it and consider historical data inherited from forefathers and learnt through books as an important source of knowledge to comprehend human's behaviour. In my perspective, knowledge is crucial to learn human's life whether it is advanced or old; however, all kinds of past experiences can not be used in this modern world.

The new world of science and technology has not only changed human lifestyle but also human behaviour, so learning from the past is not a wise decision. The main reason is that modern person life is totally different than our ancestors, for example, they used to live in tribes and their source of income was mostly livestock and agriculture, but recently people work in offices and have issues related to their jobs. In the past, If somebody has a family issue, most probably he will invite a group of relatives to settle it down; however, people nowadays like to consult with professionals such as counsellors.

On the other hand, a group of people believe that history is a great source of knowledge for us as it provides information that what kinds of decisions can lead humans to destruction and what benefit human being, such as, world war one and two gave people an insight that wars are not the solution of any problem and people changed their trend and enemies became friends, resulting world become more peaceful. Therefore, past experiences are vital because they can highlight the mistakes our forefathers made and what kind of consequence they had to face, for instance, during the epidemic period of Malaria thousands of people died due to lack of facilities and it signifies the importance of the advancement requirements for human being survival.

To sum up, history is a great source of the information for human beings and we should learn from it. Although modern problems require new technique but in many aspects of life inherited knowledge can help us to have a better life.

Feedback:

This is a good essay, but it was hard for me to read. I think you need a mixture of long and short sentences to make it more readable. I think this essay would around a band 7.
