Emotional Intelligence in Higher Education: Using Art in a Philosophical Discussion on God, Evil and Suffering
Kollontai, Pauline
Research in Education, v93 n1 p66-76 May 2015
The use of emotional intelligence in peace-building has grown significantly during the past few years. Many projects across the world include some form of art activity to help victims of conflict, both individually and together across conflicting parties, in shaping a political process which enables a more profound understanding of each other with the aim of reconciliation and building a future where the break-down of societies into violence are less likely to occur. This led me to consider how the use of paintings/drawings, done by the victims or witnesses of conflict such as war, genocide and ethnic cleansing, could contribute to the learning experience of students undertaking an elective module on the Philosophy of Religion which addressed the issues of God, evil and suffering. The findings presented here are the result of a qualitative study I undertook with undergraduate students on this elective module over a period of three years.
