為何體驗經典?Why Experience Classics?

香港中文大學通識教育基礎課程讓同學閲讀經典,反思社會制度、普世價值、多元文化及科學倫理等人類存在以來的恆久議題,設計與大學通識教育課程的四範圍呼應。「與人文對話」和「與自然對話」兩個必修科目探討人類知識和處境兩大領域。同學閱讀並根據原典,於課堂上與老師和其他同學討論。由2010年起,所有中六入學的學生必須修讀。有關通識教育基礎課程的詳情見此

課程其中一個目標為「養成對自身處境及社會議題作智性探索的習慣」,這需要學生更多日常生活的體驗實踐才能達到。體驗經典就希望於課室以外的生活體驗及社會實況,讓同學對經典思想有更深入切身的體會,並將經典智慧應用於當下社會及生活,其中一計劃就是以農耕體驗經典

 

The General Education Foundation Programme of CUHK invites students to read classics and reflect on perennial issues regarding the social institution, universal values, cultural plurality, and science and ethics, the design of which resonates with the Four Areas of University General Education. The two courses of the programme, “In Dialogue with Humanity” and In Dialogue with Nature, aim to explore human knowledge and human condition. Students are required to read selected classics and discuss related issues with teachers and classmates. Since 2010, all secondary six entrants are required to take the courses.

One of the objectives of the programme is to help students develop an “intellectual inquisitiveness when addressing issues related to their life and society”. This requires students to acquire extensive practices and experience in life. “Experiencing Classics” aims to foster deeper reflection and engagement with the classics by taking students out of the classroom into the reality of life and society, where they can apply the wisdom of the classics to what they experience here and now, “Farming with Classics” is one such endeavor.
