Introduction

 (A) Purpose
NHU is a Buddhist period in the Republic of 85 August by the "millions of people up schools" campaign created by the labor of love. Schools and theconstruction of plants and trees are all tales of the ten public Bilu basket, work hardtogether. School to promote the ancient College, rebuilding the human spirit, combined with traditional style and modern knowledge management system,developed into a competitive learning both comprehensive and research universities, and rich colors of the humanities, to show its uniqueness.
Our school motto is "Hui said mid-stream", so-called line of University Avenue,opened the door to wisdom, as the mainstay of order into the humanities, which wasthe school of education and long-term learning goals. Our school motto, with a deepphilosophical meaning, according to the ancient Greek tradition of philosophy, is thelove of science of wisdom; The Road is a road, Matilda People First, is the spirit oftraditional Chinese culture of thought; the essence of Chinese and Westernphilosophy, inspire students, to serve the community mainstay. So with the school'slong-term goal, the study of the bulk Seeger linked.                                                                                                                                              
(B) Self-positioning
School's educational goals, though full of philosophical ideal of " Hui Dao Jhong Liu"as the foundation, but not that high self-positioning of the system, ignoring the reality, the formation of unrealistic rhetoric. In fact, Taiwan's higher education, the Polytechnic is still in command, led the Department of employment-oriented development in mind, the training has not been applied philosophy, the humanities emphasis.
To 97 school year, for example, the number of college students nationwide a total of 1,337,455 people, philosophy students (including graduate students included) only 3,287 people, only 0.2458% , about every four hundred college students, only one study of philosophy. Excluding students, the proportion of 0.222% , about every four hundred and fifty students have one major in philosophy. This ratio is very low, it is obvious that higher education does not attach importance to humanities and philosophy of professional training. At present nine undergraduate philosophy classes, there are 6 located in Taipei, one located in Taichung, 2 where the Chiayi (Chung Cheng University and South China), south of Taichung, a considerable lack of philosophical foundation subjects. Benji Suo established in south-central idea of human culture into the training and, of great significance.
Knowledge of philosophy is not an ivory tower, out of college to care for the community, the department in 99 academic year in collaboration with the religious school, in both courses, creation of " Buddhist Life Education Program ", from a philosophical point of view, the Buddhist and combination of education and knowledge of life for the community to open a secondary school education learning process. Since the launch, by external recognition and support, let us recognize the combination of basic training philosophy will reach deep into the social care research is a worthy way to promote should be held.
Have this understanding, the Department of the Ministry of Education applied for and received consent, in 100 academic year was renamed " Department of Philosophy and life education ", it is hoped that the philosophy of education based training combined with life, meet the needs of the community colleges to provide training to Excellent training possessed social care students. ", it is hoped that the philosophy of education based training combined with life, meet the needs of the community colleges to provide training to Excellent training possessed social care students.
Enforcement is, therefore, self-positioning of the system are:
Training to practical application of philosophical reflection on theteaching-oriented social care department
School located in the Chiayi area, local geographical location is concerned, in the more remote countryside and suitable reading. Department of Philosophy and other domestic and Taichung metropolitan area in the north compared to the system set up but for the southern region of thought, reflection and criticism of the academic environment, and with social care needs of teaching institutions, is the basis for teaching-oriented departments.
Enrollment on past experience found that the department undergraduate students come from impoverished families, his family was not wealthy, "Department of Philosophy and life education" to provide a training philosophy based on the field of education-related knowledge through life, to enrich the students learning to support this life care , in terms of employment for graduate students, of great significance. Are interested in philosophy and life education for the volunteer students studying to enter the system, the Department would like to take care and to encourage teachers to provide their interest in learning and develop their basic capacity for critical thought.
Master's students in the class source, in addition to undergraduate students of philosophy, there are some other departments of philosophy (and life education) interested students, in addition, primary and secondary school teachers and other working people, or in the past missed opportunities while studying philosophy and life of the community interested in education, the Institute hopes to offer their lives for the lives and philosophical reflection, and thus the philosophy of wisdom, and life care education, applied to the top of their daily work.
Students entering the system, most students are not very smart, but smart students reading philosophy is not the patent, any person determined to want to train their own capacity for critical thought and rich cultivation, can be read philosophy. We do not have luxury Teaching the world, but we look forward to all my colleagues in the department's efforts, and related curriculum, allowing students to graduate, to achieve its intended goal, to get a complete training. Overall, we expect philosophy from the South and life education graduate students, the progress rate during the study period than other schools, department, in other words, we expect students to enter the South China philosophy and life as the Department of Education, the teacher who care and teaching, has made significant progress in capacity.

Therefore, I hope by course module plan, and all teachers through the teachers care and teach, students according to their interest to lead the direction of learning. Such a learning process and curriculum design are characteristic of the Department of Education goals.        
                  
(D) System-level students in basic literacy and core competencies
The Department's position and expectations of both self-teaching-oriented, not to target senior research talent in this condition, the establishment of objectives and goals of education on the development of:
1 Develop systematic thinking and reflection to the actors, to promotethe popularization of philosophy
