Question and answer
What are the fundamental differences between Western philosophies and Native North American ways of knowing? (Generally, how does each culture view the world and education?) How can you incorporate seemingly different ways of knowing in your curriculum? When responding to your classmates' posts, take the role of a student of a Native North American culture and ask a what if question.
The most fundamental difference between Western philosophy and Eastern philosophies is that Western philosophies are largely reductionistic. [ They try to start with basic building blocks and build up to an answer or an explanation of a more complex thought. They try to explain things. Eastern philosophies begin with an explanation or an answer already known and the student must find a way to
get there. Somehow the proof of the puzzle has been lost, but the structure of the universe is known. There have been some Western philosophers who have espoused an Eastern way of thinking, Plato for one. Plato believed that we already know everything we want to know, but the process of birth somehow caused us to forget it. If we think hard enough, we can remember what we already know. There really are no why questions in Eastern philosophy; a better question is: Because? Also, the western idea of mysticism, monasticism, solitude, and prayer come closer to Eastern ways of knowing. ]
