Old philosophers and new learning an intro

  1. 1. Old Philosophers & New Learning A talk with all of us (in the room)
  2. 2. Philosophers are often referred to …
  3. 3. During this OEB: socrates, Aristoteles, Niklas Luhmann, Confucius, Jean Piaget, John Dewey, Judith Butler …
  4. 4. A lot of the discussions e.g. AI, machine learning, data …are on ‘ethics’ or ‘ethical behaviour’, but …
  5. 5. What do we feel the need to point towards philosophers, and why so ‘general’ ? • Is it because we want to raise our status? To show that we can think? • Is it because we feel something is missing when we develop AI, and our hope lies in philosophy to save us? • Is it because we want to show, we as learning developers who produce machine learning/algorithms… are actually thinking of humans? • …
  6. 6. And if we refer to philosophers and link them to learning… what do we choose to highlight? • Is there a clear deeper context? • Do all the speakers who refer to philosophers know what the full context of the reference is? • Is it necessary to know the deeper meaning of all our references? • Can philosophy help in our AI, data science projects? And why do we think so?
  7. 7. I will list these questions again at the end
  8. 8. Now let me add some of my favorite (limiting to those who are dead)
  9. 9. A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), calls for women and men to be educated equally.
  10. 10. Juan Luis Vives • Schools should not be for profit • Organic pedagogy (Juan Luis Vives, 1492, Valencia, Spain – 1540, Brugge, Belgium)
  11. 11. Informal learning => Living a fearless life ἀταραξία (ataraxia,) is a Greek philosophy term used to describe a lucid state of robust equanimity Ἐπίκουρος (Epicurus; 341–270 BC) believed that what he called "pleasure" (ἡδονή) was the greatest good, but that the way to attain such pleasure was to live modestly, to gain knowledge of the workings of the world, and to limit one's desires wikipedia
  12. 12. Que sçay-je? Quand je me joue à ma chatte, qui sçait si elle passe son temps de moy plus que je ne fay d’elle ? [When I play with my cat who knows if I am not a pastime to her more than she is to me?] – Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592) (Book II, chap. 12, p. 401)
  13. 13. What is my interest with them (currently) Three blogs, hoping this will give an idea • Aristotle and echo chambers post • Short commentary on Mengzi, Socrates and social media • Hayek versus Dewey: opposing thoughts on democracy
  14. 14. So … can old philosophers be of use to new learning: giving us a compass, providing a looking glass, supporting a case, make us think deeper? Maybe start a collaborative online magazine that enables us to simply reflect and learn?
  15. 15. The Questions I started with … The need to refer to them • Is it because we want to raise our status? To show that we can think? • Is it because we feel something is missing when we develop AI, and our hope lies in philosophy to save us? • Is it because we want to show, we as learning developers who produce machine learning/algorithms… are actually thinking of humans? What do we choose to highlight in reference to learning? • Is there a clear deeper context? • Do all the speakers who refer to philosophers know what the full context of the reference is? • Is it necessary to know the deeper meaning of all our references? • Can philosophy help in our AI, data science projects? And why do we think so?
