On the Necessity and Feasibility for Researching the Educational Implications of Dewey’s Aesthetics
A lack of research on educational implications of Dewey’s aesthetics in Chinese societies was ascertained through a preliminary literature review that was writen by the author in Chinese. In addition, to continue the author’s line of ongoing research on John Dewey’s educational thoughts, the author would like to explore the necessity and feasibility of this preparatory study. Thus, accepting Dewey’s teaching of “prepared in advance,” the exploratory will first elaborate on how Dewey’s aesthetics is the core of his philosopy and it is getting more honor and influence from time to time. The notion of Art as Expeience was rarely discussed on educational topics and therefore having potential for further research in the future. Next, the author will investigate the necessity of executing this line of research by reviewing literature written in Chinese, and then the feasibility by literature written in English. The author believes that this line of research would surpass the current research results under the circumstance that researchers could study related literarure more thoroughly, publish articles in more comprehensive ways, and with more creativity and innovation.
