|Other Titles:||Towards an Ethically-based Economic Thinking: A Study on P. Ulrich’s “Integrative Economic Ethics” and Its Implications for Education|
Department of Education,National Taiwan Normal University
The ideas of marketization and competition mechanism of contemporary neoliberalism have caused plenty of controversies. However, instead of neoliberalism, the logics behind modern economics is probably the root of the problems. This study aims to analyze Peter Ulrich’s thought for clarifying the economic myth in education, i.e. guiding education to be distant from economism. The central contents of Ulrich’s “integrative economic ethics” are as below. Firstly, the “integrative” approach is an economic-ethical thinking, aiming at the service of life. It leads a market society toward civilization from economic ideology. Secondly, “socio-economic rationality” is the normative foundation of economic activities in which ethical rationality is prior to “pure” economic rationality. Thirdly, different from the scientific route emphasized by “corrective” and “normative” approaches, the “integrative” approach holistically encompasses constitution, system and action level. In conclusion, the “integrative” approach contributes to clarify the relationship between economy and education. It sheds light to break “idol of the market place” in education. Education is no longer an economic instrument by which the idea of holistic education is eliminated. In this way, education can help individuals establish ultimate goals based on the ethical value through rational communication and dialogue, cultivating students in reflecting ethical meaning within economic issues.
