The tale: wisdom pill, teaching unit

December, 03; 2020. By
On this occasion we come to review the importance of the tale, or the short-story (in a broader sense), as a basic element and philosophical unit of general learning.

But first we will have to reel and structure the types of stories that exist. Considering their clearest property, the first thing would be to include them all within what is known as a story (or tale, since they are often synonymous terms), which is a short narration. If it is realistic, then it can be a story; if you use some kind of fantasy then it is already a tale.

But according to its main utility, the story or tale can also have multiple variants. It can be a parable (a realistic story that shows a teaching), like those used by Jesus Christ, for extra-literary purposes; it can be a fable (a short story where animals behave like humans, in most cases), which also has a strong moral or teaching component (more attached to the mundane, everything is said); or it can be a realistic story or a fantastic tale whose main mission is not to teach (although something will always remain) but to entertain (that is, to pass the time without getting bored).

As can be seen, both the fables (such as those of Aesop), as well as the stories in general (such as those of the Persian poet Rumi), such as the parables of Jesus Christ themselves have a very strong teaching component, and each story usually have a main learning theme or moral, and this is what we mean by the title of this article: the tale, wisdom pill, teaching unit.
