What is Philosophy? (By Roger Hiemstra, January, 2001):  What is Philosophy? (By Roger Hiemstra, January, 2001) Philosophy has been called many things and it can have many meanings Those single words or statements on the right side are only some of them What words would you add? Wisdom Reality Theories Meaning of Life Nature of being human Life perspectives Here is One Definition::  Here is One Definition: Putting the nature of the universe, including meaning, people, and relationships, into an understand-able or explainable perspective What is your definition??? Slide3:  The purpose of this presentation is to acquaint you with various philosophical systems or models. Each system or model can be interpreted in terms of the education or training of adults. Once you examine a particular system or model, ask yourself such questions as (a) With what parts do I agree and with what parts do I disagree? (b) How might they impact on or affect the way I train or educate adults? (c) What does the model have to say for my role as an adult educator or trainer? Examine the visual representation of these notions in the next slide. Slide4:  Idealism Humanism Various Philosophical Systems or Models Can be Interpreted in Terms of Educating/Training Adults With Implications for Training/Educating Adults With Implications for Adult Educator Roles IDEALISM (See http://home.twcny.rr.com/hiemstra/philchap.html, Figure 12.1):  IDEALISM (See http://home.twcny.rr.com/hiemstra/philchap.html, Figure 12.1) Meaning is in the ideals of life itself Reality is made up of absolute truths However, a “truth” sometimes is only in the eye of the beholder Educationally this means the use of inductive reasoning, lecturing Plato was an early key proponent of this model REALISM:  REALISM Meaning comes through empirically proven facts Reality is made up of natural laws, facts However, empirical facts are always subject to change Educationally this involves scientific reasoning Chisholm and Whitehead proponents PROGRESSIVISM:  PROGRESSIVISM Meaning comes through concrete facts Theory based on truth makes up reality Problem solving and experimenting are instructional techniques But does this diminish the teacher’s role? John Dewey a leading proponent (had a huge impact on American education) LIBERALISM:  LIBERALISM Freedom comes through a liberated mind Humans endowed with reasoning ability Thus, educationally you teach learners the classics and develop their minds But, the past may not relate to modern problems and situations Aristotle was an early proponent BEHAVIORISM:  BEHAVIORISM Human behavior tied to prior conditioning External forces control all human behavior Could learning be too complex for the control of certain behaviors? Teaching methods include behavioral conditioning, feedback, drill and practice B. F. Skinner well known proponent (he also impacted heavily on U.S. education) HUMANISM (Read http://home.twcny.rr.com/hiemstra/sdlhuman.html for background):  HUMANISM (Read http://home.twcny.rr.com/hiemstra/sdlhuman.html for background) Intellect distinguishes humans from animals Humans have potential/innate goodness Thus, educationally you facilitate and encourage self-direction Some educational needs may be missed? Abraham Maslow early proponent RADICALISM:  RADICALISM People themselves create meaning Knowledge leads to an understanding of reality and, ultimately, necessary change This approach can be idealistic in nature and often leads to confrontation Teach by dialogue and problem solving Paulo Freire prominent proponent ECLECTICISM:  ECLECTICISM Fortunately, there is a way of dealing with all the various models Eclecticism is not a philosophical system or model, but rather is the synthesizing and per-sonal interpretation of various models to draw out the best components for yourself Thus, you pull the best from various models in any effort to build your own statement of personal philosophy Slide13:  Visit http://home.twcny.rr.com/hiemstra/ethics1.html for Roger’s personal statement of philosophy to see how he drew from various philosophical models to create his own statement You can do the same thing and you may want to use the worksheets shown as Figure 12.2 in http://home.twcny.rr.com/hiemstra/philchap.html, as well as the scores you receive from taking the Lorraine Zinn instrument, as a way of thinking through the basics of your own statement The overall point of this exercise is to help you see that an ability to write a personal statement of philosophy becomes foundational to an under-standing of ethics and how you will apply such understanding to what you do professionally Slide14:  Selected References Archambault, R.
