PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY

Philosophy is regarded as a theoretical study, but in fact, it is practical in the following way: although it gives no guidance of specific behavior, but the clear orientation, along with that we are able to derive guidance for every single action. That is why Immanuel Kant said: "Learning philosophy is impossible, but learning the way, how to think philosophically, is possible." Roughly speaking, the so-called "practical philosophy" includes two research areas: "ethics" and "political and legal philosophy". The former intends to give the answer to the question: "What kind of person I want to be?" While the latter to the question: "What kind of country we want to build and what kind of society we can achieve?" These questions are no doubt crucial enquiry for anyone of us and therefore worth to think deeply in the class.
