The Problem Method in Teaching Philosophy: A Praxiologic Educology
Morkuniene, Jurate
Online Submission, cd-International Journal of Educology, Lithuanian Spec Iss p28-37 2005
This is an attempt to clarify principally some fundamental ideas clustered around the concept of the formal conditions which would constitute a fruitful studying of philosophy. First, an ideal study situation would require the student to participate in the object-subject dialogue; philosophical studies are an active dialogue between the text and the subject. Next, philosophy is a paradigmatically and historically oriented institution, grounded on the notions of discipline, autonomy, and authority. The idea is that we are currently facing a crisis in philosophy, and this crisis constitutes a major problem for the studies of philosophy. The metamorphosis of the concept of philosophy in contemporary philosophy is related to the new problem of the dialogue and interconnections between the object and the subject, new ways of conceiving the truth and a renewed social force of philosophy. New perceptions of the interconnections of the student and philosophical knowledge raise anew the problems of objectivity. Philosophy has lost its autonomy and strict authority.
