|Other Titles:||Beginning with “Self-Knowledge” for Educating “Heroic Mind”: On G. Vico's Educational Thoughts of the University”|
Department od Education, NTNU
Through Vico's “Inaugural Orations” and his relevant writings, this study aimed to examine his thoughts on university education. Vico used “self-knowledge” as the entry point into the academic world, with a goal towards developing a “heroic mind,” a mind that could distinguish good from evil, regard for honor and sincerity, express solicitude for the well-being of human beings, and create knowledge. To achieve this goal, students need to understand their relationship with the universe, country, and others, to be aware of their own corruptive and divine characters, to learn from liberal arts and sciences to build up systemic knowledge, and to acquire the Wisdom of God to develop lofty minds that care for all creatures and well-fare of mankind. Although Vico's educational thoughts, which encompassed liberal traditions, religions, and collectivist consciousness, were not seen as systematic, his orations on the divine mind and sublime horizon could be a firm foundation for teaching, research, and service in a modern university.
