♠ 心理學是人類試圖反思認識自己的學科之一。人的心理與行為具有生物生理的面

相,同時也受到社會文化環境所影響。生命個體之中糾纏著認知與情緒,有理性的一面,也有感性的一面,心理學探討的正是這些心理的機制與前因後果。本課程將介紹當代心理學的知識體系與分枝,探討人類心靈、心智與行為現象,從而提供每個人對日常生活中各生命展演之理解與導引。

      Course Description
    歷史經濟學是介紹歷史問題的經濟理論,這門課比通常經濟史課成還注重理論與方法,適合想要進一步從經濟學瞭解歷史或從歷史瞭解經濟發展的同學選修,也是對有志學習經濟史的同學極有用的基礎課程。歡迎對經濟學與歷史皆有興趣的同學選修。
     在近幾十年間,西方的經濟史學界發生了革命性的變化,這項新經濟史的發展致力於將經濟分析與計量資料用在經濟史的研究之上 , 其結果不僅帶給經濟史許多課題新的瞭解 , 也開拓了經濟史新的研究方法。新經濟史發展至今又面臨許多新的反省,我們將從新經濟史的興起討論經濟史的研究方法,特別是近年來發展蓬勃的新制度學派,課程後半部將結合重要之經濟史課題的討論。

科技與社會
林文源 教授
Tsinghua classic courses help you build a strong background of science, allow you to keep pace with the latest information, and win at the starting point!

 

一、為何要探討科學、技術與社會的關係

                Why should we explore the relationship between science, technology and society?

  科學與技術對人類的生活有深遠影響,尤其在數位運算、網際網路、基因、奈米等科技高度發展與影響下,今日社會生活的變動更是劇烈。藉由既有科技與社會研究(science, technology and society studies, 簡稱STS)的研究取徑與案例,本課程探討科技的研發、推廣、使用,與社會影響層面,以及其中牽扯的科學家、工程師、廠商、政府、民眾等各種團體的關連。這種思考下,課程一開始由工程師與科學家的活動所建構出的科技世界與視界出發,探討發明、創新活動背後的複雜歷程,再由科學知識與技術物中介隱含的政治與權力關係,思考使用者、公眾、產業、專業的脈絡特質,以及科技爭議辯論,希望提供更為開放思考科技、社會與個人生涯之政治性與可能性。

Science and technology have a profound impact on human life. Especially in the highly developments and influences of technologies such as digital operation, Internet, genetics, nanotechnology, the changes in social life today are even more dramatic. With the existing researches and cases of STS (science, technology and society studies), this course will explore the development, promotion, use and social impact aspect of technologies as well as the associations of scientists, engineers, manufacturers, governments, people, etc. Based on this kind of thinking, the course begins with the technological world built by the engineers’ and scientists’ actions and explore the complex processes behind invention and innovation activities. Then, by understanding the political and power relations implied by scientific knowledge and technology, students can think about the characteristics of users, public, industry, and profession. Students may also learn some debates on science and technology disputes. The professor hopes to provide more open thinking about the politics and possibilities of technology, society and personal career.

 
 

   本課程需要課程參與者高度互動、參與討論的課程。藉由案例討論、實作練習,以及資料蒐集與分析的安排,本課程一方面希望提供理工科學生一個由其專業相關議題出發,拓展人文社會思考與視野的機會,另一方面,希望讓人文社會管理背景的學生,瞭解其他專業如何能與科技發展多元結合,甚至是提出另類可能性。希望這門課程能提供融合點,讓參與的同學都能由自身專業出發,發展探索科技發展與反省的基礎,希望有助於使各位成為更具前瞻性與多元思考、反省能力的「科技—社會人」。
This course requires students highly interact and discuss with others. Through case discussions, practical exercises, and arrangements for data collection and analysis, this course hopes to provide science and engineering students with an opportunity to expand their social thinking from their profession-related issues. On the other hand, professor hopes the humanity and social science students can understand how other professions combine with technologies or even provide other possibilities. Professor hoped that this course can become a fusion point, so that the students can start from their own profession and develop the foundation of exploring the technology development. Professor hoped that this will help students become a “Technology-Society person” who has forward-looking, multi-thinking and reflective abilities.

【課程說明】
     Course Description

     籠統地說,哲學是對人類的知識或經驗中一些比較基本的概念或問題,提出批判性的反省。本課程之目的,主要是要讓同學對一些哲學的概念與問題有一般的理解,尤其著重培養他/她們對這些問題作獨立思考的能力。詳言之,我們希望透過這門課,使學生能夠做到以下幾點:
1.在閱讀文本的時 候,對其中相關的概念或論題,能恰當地掌握,而不致於有望文生義、囫圇吞棗,或胡亂比附等弊病。
2.能夠初步掌握這些概念或論題之所以產生之脈絡,以及掌握支持或反對這些論題的各種論證,換言之,我們希望學生對這些哲學爭論的理路或辯證發展,能有一定的掌握。
3.我 們希望學生能進一步對這些爭論,提出一己的分析與批判,並以清晰流暢的文字來表述之。

        Important Sources  

        每位修課同學必須參與課堂主題資料的閱讀及討論,授課老師將會協助同學的發音及用字,並解釋與分析閱讀資料。學生可隨時提出問題,參與討論,但也會被要求回答問題,因此本課程的學習過程將會是一個互動模式。課程的參與極為重要,將會佔總成績相當重的比例。為了讓同學對自己的報告及期末成績的評分有更充份的瞭解,授課教師將利用期末的兩個星期與各學生討論其整體表現,讓學生能夠從質化評量中,提昇並改進學習成效。

        Everyone needs to participate in class discussion of reading which relates to the topic. And professor will help students to correct their pronunciation of words, and analysis plain the reading materials. Students can ask questions and participate in discussions at any time while they might be asked to answer questions. Seemingly, interaction will be the main mode in this course. Also, the participation is extremely important, and it will be a large proportion in the grade.

        In order to let student to be familiar with the way of deciding final grade score, the professor will do some discussions two weeks before the end the semester. In this way, students will be able to know their learning results through qualitative examine. And then, they will be able to find way to improve learning results.

The medium of communication in this course is English. Textbooks, lecture, examinations, report and class discussion will all be conducted in English. If you do not feel comfortable with this format, you should re-consider whether this course truly meet your needs.
