Abstract:   (316 Views)
By studying philosophical works, we first described philosophers' metaphors for "mind", then classified and critically examined them, and finally deduced their implications in education. The results indicate that - according to this study - nine metaphors were used about the mind, based on which we divided the mind into passive and active. Among the mentioned metaphors, the metaphor of the fertile earth and the metaphor of the glasses are active metaphors according to which -unlike other metaphors- every student is a unique and thinking creature with freedom of choice and individuality. This perspective has a fluid view on man and believes in freewill and does not view him as a machine. The implications of the mentioned attitude in the curriculum elements are presented in a table. Since each teacher has a personal philosophy, his attitude towards students' minds can guide the way he teaches and the way he treats them.
