    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this article is to make a study of the educational meaning of K. Jaspers’ independent character. From chapter Ⅱ to chapter Ⅳ each chapter verified major research problems such as independent character being based on reason, education for cultivating the intellectual excellence of reason, and social self-realization to stick to a philosophical life and fulfill social responsibility. In short, Jaspers emphasized that the education of independent character is to strive to develop the reason in the center of this character. In the final analysis, the education Jaspers pursued is committing to intrinsic value developing independent character with reason through liberal education. This is criticism about education emphasizing social practicality such as vocational and professional education, and is the product of a serious reflection on what human education should be.

    ‘Oneness’ in the Sense of Becoming Involved in the Dan-gun Mythology as Contrasted with ‘Genesis’

    KIM JEONG-NAE | 2017, (64) | pp.27~53 | number of Cited : 4
    Abstract PDF
    The paper concerns on the differences between mythologies and the Genesis, and then has taken three senses of ‘becoming’ seriously, which are dubbed as ‘making’, ‘creation’, and ‘convergence’. Some confusions between making and creation have been found in the examination of ‘Genesis’, which show us the logical defects. By contrast, the arguments have demonstrated that the Dan-gun mythology requires the new justifying conceptions. As a result, the concept of ‘oneness’ as the crucial sense of ‘becoming’ has been taken into account. This provides us the significant ground for the particularity of Korean Identity as well as the core value of education such as ‘Hongik-ingan’ to be founded.

    Yi, Jong-Han , Yi, Sungyup | 2017, (64) | pp.87~115 | number of Cited : 2
    Abstract PDF
    The primary aim of this study is to find out Laozi’s philosophy of learning, such as the purpose of learning, the way to learn. Laozi had very negative stance on acquiring knowledge at ancient school, he said “if you stop learning, you will not be worried any more”, and “You should maintain the attitude you are not learned man, if you are an learned one”. so there little has been known about Laozi's philosophy of learning without his stance. We researched Laozi's philosophy of learning through the Taoteching, found out very concrete one. In Taoteching, Laozi presented “Brightness” as a purpose of learning and three specific way to learn, “See the subtle”, “Know thyself and see others' point of view”, “See from the perspective of harmony”. “Brightness” means a clear understanding of the nature of nature and human relationship “See the subtle” means that focusing on the minute nearly hard to find out, because almost accident, like a safety incident or structure collapse, begins with a very small crack and the upheaval, such as war or industrial revolution, begins with a very tiny changes. “Know thyself” means understanding exactly what you want to do and taking a look at weather you are in pursuit that. “See others' point of view” means in your point, you can only understand the words and actions of others, but in others' point of view, you can understand their reason. thus if you know thyself and see others' point of view you can get to clear understanding of human relationship “See from the perspective of harmony” means understanding the principle that an opposition things, like life and death, high and low, long and short, are exist correlated, affecting and changing each other. Laozi said that is knowing harmony and that make someone get to clear understanding The natural and the human world. Laozi’s philosophy is fit for adult learning, because it is aims to reach ‘Brightness’ Through understanding of the world, not aimed at competition or memorization for evaluation. also ways to learn can give many lessons to fundamental education, cultural education and vocational education.

    Methodology of the selection by articulation between secondary and higher curriculum - focused on a case in America -

    HWANG DUHWAN , Yong-Gae Cho | 2017, (64) | pp.141~172 | number of Cited : 0
    Abstract PDF
    The purpose of this study is to analyze the framework of the educational system in America and of the selection system through literature studies and case studies, based on the conceptualization that the admission officer system is a typical selection system by the linkage of high school-university curriculum. The results are as follows. First, educational policies are collected and operated by the state government. Second, the type of admissions is simplified to early admissions, regular admissions, and occasional admissions. Third, as an example, UC Berkeley is conducting a university admission with a method of 'holistic reviews'. Fourth, the characteristics of institutional operations in America are that the curriculum in high school is independent of the selection in university for guaranteeing normal operation. The selection is made by articulation between secondary and higher education, and the admission data is unified regardless of admission types. Using the case of the admission officer system analyzed in this study, first, various admission materials are used such as recommendations from counselors and teachers, and letters of self-introduction as well as high-school records when selecting students. Also, the high school records are of more importance and have greater weight to university admission than the national standardized testing. The framework of universities' selection systems applies a model that selects students who meet the purpose of the major unit education by emphasizing the context of social selection and reflecting the university's ideology and educational need. The university entrance exam, called the college scholastic ability test, is considered as a competitive system. But in order for the admissions officer system to actually contribute as a mechanism towards the candidate’s selection the linkage of high school-university curriculum in the educational situation in Korea must be included in the admission process, otherwise the weight of standardized test alone has the opposite crippling effect on the influence of high school curriculum. First of all, it is necessary to minimize the influence the college scholastic ability test and to extend nation-owned evaluation rights to individual schools and teachers. In addition, it is necessary to change the direction of the university's student selection method to the "major unit selection system' that selects students who meet the purpose of the major unit education.
