Experimental Philosophy and the Notion of the Self

What is the field of experimental philosophy? Experimental philosophy is a relatively new field—one that just cropped up around the past ten years or so, and it's an interdisciplinary field, uniting ideas from philosophy and psychology. In particular, what experimental philosophers tend to do is to go after questions that are traditionally associated with philosophy but to go after them using the methods that have been traditionally associated with psychology.

Dewey, John [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]

Dewey, John [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy] | Education | Scoop.it

John Dewey was a leading proponent of the American school of thought known as pragmatism, a view that rejected the dualistic epistemology and metaphysics of modern philosophy in favor of a naturalistic approach that viewed knowledge as arising from an active adaptation of the human organism to its environment. On this view, inquiry should not be understood as consisting of a mind passively observing the world and drawing from this ideas that if true correspond to reality, but rather as a process which initiates with a check or obstacle to successful human action, proceeds to active manipulation of the environment to test hypotheses, and issues in a re-adaptation of organism to environment that allows once again for human action to proceed.

Why Study Psychology?

Why Study Psychology? | Education | Scoop.it
Many college students wonder why psychology is often included as a basic course, even in degree programs which seemingly have nothing to do with psychology, such as business courses.  However, there is an easy answer, and it is that having some training and background in psychology may certainly help you in all other career fields you may choose.

Angel Flores's curator insight, April 12, 2014 6:26 PM

I think this web page was one of the most helpful sites I have read. I found it quite enjoyable because it not only told me why someone should study psychology but how it is used. What it can be used for and how it simply helps understand the basic human brain.

I am interested in the study field of psychology, in particular I want to be a marriage counselor for those parents who need guidance and someone to listen too.

Andy Nolan's curator insight, April 26, 2014 5:01 PM

It is clear that ‘business as usual’ is not an option for higher education. In order to prepare students to cope with complex challenges, take action and achieve sustainable societies, there’s a need to rethink the mission of higher education. Competence-based education offers great opportunities to re-examine and reorient educational systems towards sustainability, thus providing an important lever for sustainable higher education. Special attention needs to be paid to the competences linked with future orientation, system orientation, personal involvement, and action skills. This approach will enable to create the new mental models, and transform the way we interpret and respond to our existing world. Integrating competences for SD could speed up the integration process of sustainability in higher education.

Warning - Not very PC statement coming up (it's not mine, I have just used ctrl+c ctrl+p) "Professors and researchers have a lot on their plate and most are too old to be digital natives." Why am I posting this here in a scoop about sustainable universities? Well, much talk about teaching pedagogy, but what about research - dissemination, understanding and sharing and collaborating using the tools which do this quickly, succinctly and cheaply? Anyway, it's an interesting read ...
