Teaching Philosophy based on We-Experience:
A New Approach and Four Teaching Concepts
Keywords:student experience, "we-experience", teaching concept, classroom experiment, lesson opening
In this paper, we present a new approach to teaching philosophy based on so-called “we-experiences” (in short: TWEEX). The novelty of this approach, which bears on the concept of “we-experience” from Social Ontology and Phenomenology, is that it connects contents directly to shared classroom experience. After discussing its theoretical background, we illustrate the TWEEX approach by presenting four teaching concepts that can be adapted to different teaching contexts. They deal with the following topics: mindfulness and philosophy (ancient philosophy), the nature of scientific theories (philosophy of science), freedom of speech (political philosophy), and boredom (aesthetics, existential philosophy).
