The Dilemma and the Way Out in Knowledge Teaching in China's Higher Education
随着信息社会的到来、人文主义的勃兴和后现代主义思潮的冲击,高等教育中的知识教学面临着前所未有的困境。信息社会的来临并不是要削弱知识教学的地位,而是对知识教学提出了更高的要求。人文主义应该为知识教学服务,而不是站在知识教学的对立面甚至打压知识教学的地位。现代知识观更符合高等教育的需求,后现代知识观提供的只是一种另类而反叛的思维方式,并不值得高等教育采纳。知识教学摆脱困境的路径不在于降低知识地位,而在于让学生通过简约地经历知识生产过程的方式来了解和掌握高深知识。With the coming of information society, the prosperity of humanism and the shock by post-modernism, knowledge teaching in China＇s higher education is now facing unprecedented dilemma. Information society asks for a better performance of knowledge rather than degrading the importance of knowledge. Humanism should serve knowledge teaching rather than being against knowledge teaching or even suppress it. Modern concept of knowledge conforms better to the needs of higher education. However, the post-modern concept of knowledge provides an alien but rebel thinking mode which should be refused. The way out for the dilemma is to let the students experience the precise way of knowledge production to grasp complex knowledge, rather than to degrade the status of knowledge.
