ABSTRACT

This study sought to explore the direction of (integrated) education by examining the value of nonviolent symbiosis education from the perspective of evolutionary psychology. Accordingly, this study discussed the significance of integrated education first, discussing the concept that all education is integrated. In this sense, we examined the value and sustainability of integrated education in terms of evolutionary psychology. As a result of the study, the history of humankind is not a continuation of infinite competition among individuals; but rather a history of symbiosis of various individuals. In short, the conditions were found to be symbiotic. It also showed that only nonviolent symbiosis education can ensure real development and sustainability. This study emphasized the value of the extension of the social mind, and the social recovery of suffering by a new understanding of altruism, especially in the evolutionary psychological perspective. Consequently, (integrated) education can lead to nonviolent symbiosis education, by making creative educational routines based on daily production rather than consumption. For this purpose, the study proposed the practice of “diversity of daily life”.
