​课程简介

“思想并非一只用以盛装的空罐子,而是一团亟待点燃的火焰” —— 古希腊哲学家普罗塔戈。

“深入经典、引导阅读”读书俱乐部每周一次,扎根每位同学的实际需求,对包括诸如莎士比亚戏剧在内的经典作品和诸如伍尔夫小说在内的现代名著展开深入浅出的分析,一方面帮助同学们深刻理解古今名家的思想,同时也引导同学们对作品形成具有个性的思考和理解。本着以学生为中心的理念,该系列所选的作品也会根据每个同学的兴趣和需求有所变化。

 

该课程通过研讨的形式,由讲师提出具有启发性的问题,帮助同学们发现和形成新视角、新思路,引导他们通过作品审视自身和现实世界。在主动学习的环境中,培养同学们形成充满人性光辉的思维、进而引导他们塑造受益终生的思维探索习惯。

 

该系列课程将有助于同学们获得如下技能和习惯:细致的观察力、精微的分析力、发现强而有力的论点、展开充满想象的对比、对不同观点的接纳力和包容力、以及胸怀世界的眼界和抱负 —— 这些都将为同学们成功应对这个复杂多变的世界打下坚实的基础。
