English Abstract

This article presents my experience of teaching the course ”Philosophy of Life”. The main purpose of the paper is to provide suggestions for teachers in constructing a complete Holistic education and framework of their course design.The paper is divided into four parts. The first part focuses on difficulties in teaching ”Philosophy of Life”. The second part is to deal with Enjoyment and Knowledge: ”Knowledge is second to devotion, devotion is not better than joy.” The third part aims at the teaching in accordance with student's individual differences. It is to say: ”the wise enjoy the waters, the benevolent enjoy the mountains.” The fourth part traces back to Humanities in Holistic Education: ”The benevolent is a human being.” The last indicates the possibility of overcoming difficulties in teaching ”Philosophy of Life”.Due to the limited time, I have no sufficient time to deal with all possible aspects in its entirety therefore; I transfer my role from a presenter to a reflector. I have already written a paper The reflection on ”Philosophy of Life” in Holistic Education-Enjoyment, Knowledge, Humanity, for giving this topic an integrated profile.
