Intermediate Things!

As I sat in the office, thoughtful, feeling the urge to write yet not realizing what exactly it is I want to write about, a book, on the desk next to me, proposed the answer to me! The book’s title was: Intermediate Accounting.

When I read the title, a small smirk was drawn on my face and ironically I thought of this: Why do many academic books have titles carrying “intermediate” as the first word? How many things in real life application are intermediate?

The definition of the word intermediate is: lying or occurring between two extremes or in the middle position or state.

Now, think with me: How many times have we felt anything on the “intermediate” level?
When was the last time we felt “intermediate” pain, happiness, sadness, frustration or hope?
When was the last time we felt “intermediate” safety, stability or control?

Things in life, unfortunately, are rarely in the intermediate level. They happen to occur in extremes, extremes which we may not know how to handle or which we do not even desire.

Have you ever half hated someone?
Have you ever half loved anyone?

Let’s look at the bigger picture: take our society for example, the middle class is slowly vanishing (if it is not already gone that is!)

These days, things are extremities. So why do academic book writers still insist on adding the word intermediate in their book titles? Isn’t education a reflection of the world we live in?
