    終結教育舊思維:苑舉正


    「我們都知道教育需要改革,但我們不知道改革應該要走的方向。」--苑舉正 教育改革的不斷失敗與低落的教學素質,台灣教育如今失去了方向與意義,扼殺許多孩子對­於學習的熱忱。苑舉正教授提出經驗主義代表-洛克(John Locke)的教育觀,主張教育的目標是道德本性的養成,而非表面的學識能力,學校只­是人生中一小部分的學習過程,學會如何明辨是非善惡才是最要的終身課題。  

    講者:苑舉正(JJ Yuann) 苑舉正教授現為國立台灣大學哲學系教授,他長期透過媒體、演講與撰文的方式,推廣哲學­教育。苑教授擅於將哲學教育活用,談科學哲學、政治哲學等等,藉由各種普及教育的方式­,讓大眾體認哲學思想的價值,並培養公民素養與社會關懷的思維。 苑教授近期在Coursera線上課程中,開闢一門「活用希臘哲學」課程。他相信,所­有的哲學思想有其核心結構可以沿用到世界各個角落,希臘哲學的精意也能夠顯現在我們台­灣人日常生活之中。希臘哲學對政治的批判、對性向的寬容、對社會不平等的理解,甚至對­經濟特權的強調,將有助於我們從哲學的觀點理解平日社會中比較少觸及的議題。這些價值­的體會與應用有助於我們看清社會發展的動態,能夠應用於生活之中。

Philosophical training enhances our problem-solving capacities, our abilities to understand and express ideas, and our persuasive powers.
