|Other Titles:||In Search of the Art of Teaching: The Implications of J. Dewey's Thought for Aesthetic Qualities of the Practice of Teaching|
Department od Education, NTNU
This article develops some “artistic” (or “aesthetic”) teaching principles based on J. Dewey's thought, through a discussion of three different yet related topics. Firstly, it analyzes the core concepts in Dewey's philosophy including “experience,” “nature” and “art” with a view to explaining their role in revealing the essence of an ideal teacher, especially in Art as Experience. Secondly, based on Dewey's pedagogy, the paper interprets his philosophy of teaching by explaining how a teacher can be an artist, a servant of democracy, and a “lover.” Finally, by further investigating Dewey's concept of “art” which is closely related to his philosophy of “experience,” the paper explores the aesthetic dimension of Dewey's educational thought. For Dewey, art is not only a form of expression containing empirical elements, but also the embodiment of various relations present in the practice of morality, politics and education, and in all social interactions. Thus, illustrating the role of art in these relations will help us to understand Dewey's concept of the “art of teaching.”
