Since human beings have been able to think, they were asking themselves about their life, their meaning: they have taken into consideration their existence. The deepest discussed ethical questions are about life, innocence and experience. The purpose of this discussion is to demonstrate that experience can improve human life where disappointment is the essential passage from innocence to experience. Admittedly it is going to far to assert that experience also can't improve the life, for instance if a little boy affront to be subjected to the war, he could be psychologically shock for all his life. In this sense experience can destroy the future boy life. The disappointment has for result the experience which is an indelible memory. In the following pages we will first look at the relationship between innocence and experience at the beginning of the life before seeing that all the illusions of childhood are destroyed by a gain of experience and by the beginning of adulthood.
To qualify experience through human life, we have firstly to define it. The notion of experience is, of course, quite difficult to determine. But , according to some people, it is the experience of our own being. In this sense, it exists a need of experience, demonstrated by Shopenhawer ( French philosopher), which is a constituent of our humanity. Indeed, experience is a fact of acquiring a moral knowledge, a process which starts at your birth. Childhood is a period of experience and innocence. This is a period of frivolity and naivety. Childhood is also a period where adults represent justice and honesty. For children they can't be wrong. But most of the time, disappointments come from them. Children have their own world and illusions . They need to protect themselves against the hard reality of adulthood: "credulity is the man's weakness, but the child's strength" (Charles Lamb).At the beginning of life, each baby is honourable and experience less.
