ABSTRACT

This study is intended to classify the educational meaning of the based on the idea of qualitative thought which connects John Dewey's theory of art and logic of inquiry, and the theory of creativity in the contemporary pedagogical psychology. Dewey concentrates the active process called ‘thinking’ connected with ‘perception’ which is the origin of all awareness, and suggests the transformation of late 20th century's theory of knowledge. Ultimately, it will be concluded that the subject called the knowledge's variability and relativity attended by the post-modern epistemology is deeply connected with the problem of aesthetic understanding, perceptional thought, or language of art through proving a continuity of the education studies' two core subjects; theory of knowledge and theory of art, and the aesthetics through re-examining the qualitative thought-focused Deweys' philosophy, and the 21st century's education for creativity must learn from the artist's thought. The qualitative thought which is represented the most clearly as the logic of artistic construction shows the feature of qualitative regulation which is common in the art and science. The art as the inquiry or the art studies from the aspect of the qualitative thought is focused on the logic of artistic formation or the artistic thought shown in the art experiences. It shows that the art education will considerably contribute the cognitive progress and creativity towards the future not staying in the emotion cultivation or self-express training. It also shows that the art education engages with the core of the 21st century's knowledge and art education reform toward the creative minds in the future.
