The Mystery of Education
Keywords:culture, virtue, critical reflexivity, goodness
In this paper, I shall shortly investigate if some kind of guiding principle, general message, or fascinating buzzword can manifest in philosophy or pedagogy (in their theory and practice). The question which I am interested in is whether the pedagogical and philosophical aspects can meet in education. To put it more specifically: whether a spirited and noble buzzword exists or not. It is obvious that goodness is not universal and obligatory; one “only” has to strive for it. This article claims that the cultures of philosophy and pedagogy can do a lot for the formation and practice of independent and critical thinking and the virtue of goodness. Critical thinking requires the bravery of the intellect; goodness necessitates the decency, the nobleness of the heart and the catchword of philosophy and pedagogy soul. One has to learn and understand both of these catchwords.
