A Study of the Thought of Education in Hermann Hesse’s “The Glass Bead Game”
Due to the emergence of a “rhetorical” revolution in the field of educational philosophy and the closing gap between philosophy and literature, inquiries into educational thinking of famous writers could be a feasible alternative for the study of educational thought. This paper focuses on the world-known German poet and novelist Hermann Hesse in the 20th century and his representative work “Das Glasperlenspiel ” (The Glass Bead Game) to probe into his educational thought. As a Nobel Prize award-winner, the influences of Hesse to the world (including U.S. and Taiwan) were considered to be huge and long-lasting. In Hesse’s novels, education and self-discovery were always important themes. In addition, he was also concerned about the dualism between spirit and nature, mind and body, and the process of human searching for spirit beyond social limits. All of the themes mentioned above, this researcher argues, should also be significant issues where educators should care for, and this is the reason why many works by Hesse are so called “Bildungsroman”. Furthermore, Hesse also highlighted the “utopian alternative academic community” in his “The Glass Bead Game”. In the main scene of this novel, which was called “pedagogical province” and Castalia, it addressed the highlights Hesse placed on education. Finally, the author argues that it would be beneficial to further study western thought of education in Taiwan through inquiring Hesse’s thinking about education.
