感性教育論の展開(1) : 言葉の教育を考える

A Development of the Theory of Aesthetic Education (1): Thinking of the Education of Language
This paper aims to develop the theory of aesthetic education which has been asserted by the author since 2001 with focusing on the education of language. As the education of language, the poetry was paid attention to in this paper in order to present a conception that the poetry twines around the life beyond the function of the denotative meaning of words and implies the aesthetic experiences of the bodily knowing. It was pointed out that the current school subjects system could not respond to this crucial character of language correctly, and some examples of learning across the framework of school subjects were described through considering the poetic attitudes of poets such as Shuntarou TANIKAWA and Shirou MURANO. It was clarified that the poetry was a verbal expression of the bodily knowing which constructed an innovative world and the bodily knowing was, on the contrary, activated by the world. As a concluding remark, it was insisted that the education of language as an aesthetic education would make explicit the deep relationship between language and life.
