Existentialism in Education
A keen study of quite an amount of existentialist philosophy would reveal that to write about existentialism is neither easy nor simple but a challenging and complex one. If doubts and confusions are left uncleared, one can only say that “contradictions and inconsistencies are fundamental to their thought.”1 Some illustrations of such paradoxes are – Heidegger’s statement -: ‘analyse death to understand life’, Jaspers : ‘Renounce your world and you will return to it’, Santre : You are a free man if you deny God’, Kierkegaard : ‘You are a free man if you accept God”, etc. When once a critique drew the attention of Sartre by ... market research, surveys and trends

In search of scientists
The South African economy is currently mainly resource-based, whereas the most rapidly developing economies have invested heavily in the knowledge-based economy. A resource-based economy is not sustainable in the long term as resources get depleted with time. However, the use of our current richness in resources to develop a knowledge-based economy will position South Africa to compete with global economic development to the benefit of our people. Through scientific and technological innovations, a sustainable economic growth is achievable.

At this point, I'm looking for direction. I don't mind paying a few bucks for the service, so long as it is solid stuff and not some kind of online superficial scam that puts out boiler-plate ...

I don't know whether or not you are still in school, but if you are, your school will have access to several valid and reliable instruments that can give you career ideas and measure your aptitude for those careers.  In general, it is best to find an instrument that measures both work values and aptitudes.  In other words, you want something to tell you what you would like AND whether or not you will be good at what you like.  Some examples of these kinds of instruments are the Myers-Briggs Personality test in combination with the Strong Interest Inventory.    I like inventories based on the Holland ...
