通識午餐聚會 Lunch Seminar

同理心可以教嗎?如何培養同學的同理心
Can Compassion be Taught?
Engaging Students to Develop Compassionate Attitudes

講者:古明達教授 (醫學院助理院長(教育))
Speaker: Prof. Shekhar Madhukar Kumta (Assistant Dean (Education), Faculty of Medicine)

簡介

科技的進步對醫療服務帶來深遠的影響,使人受惠,也改變了人們對它的期望。隨著人類染色體排序、標靶療法的突破性發展,以及醫療專案的出現,許多過往難以處理的疾病,如今都能快速被診斷,並在眾多精密的療法下,得到治理。

然而,科技的進步,現代社會(包括我們的學生)對於醫療服務的期望,以及醫療服務的企業化等等,往往令今日的醫療服務不再人性化,而使治療的藝術,變成由技術研發推動的產業。

可是,無論醫藥如何精密先進,醫療工作仍然應該以真誠的同理心為本,保持人與人緊密交流。失去了這個重要的典範,醫療事業便脫離了人與人之間的聯繫,僅成為純粹的商業行為。

作為教育工作者,我們應該如何維護這深刻而固有的人文關懷作為醫療服務的重要基石?我們又應該如何培養同學的同理心?

在是次的通識午餐聚會,講者將從他的教學及行醫經驗出發,分享這些經驗如何影響他自己,以及如何幫助他引導學生及實習生,鼓勵他們反思和理解在人與人日常的相處之中,按同理心及道德行事的核心價值。

Brief Descriptio

The technological advances in society have had a profound impact on the practice of medicine and perhaps even in the expectations of people directly benefitting from it. Breakthroughs in human genomic sequencing, the discovery of targeted therapies and highly customized patient specific solutions provide rapid diagnostic possibilities backed up by a plethora of sophisticated therapies for many diseases that were hitherto difficult to manage.

Yet the advances of technology, the expectations of modern society (including those of our students) and the corporatization of health care delivery have all tended to depersonalize the practice of medicine – changing from a healing art to a technology-based research driven enterprise.

Yet for all its sophistications the practice of medicine should remain a matter of close human interaction – based on a genuine feeling of compassionate understanding. Without this important paradigm medicine would become divorced from its deep human bondings and be relegated to the realm of pure commerce.

As educators, how can we retain the deep and innate humanity that underpins the practice of medicine—how can we inculcate compassionate values in our students?

In this lunch seminar, the speaker wishes to share his personal experiences in the teaching and practice of medicine that have profoundly influenced him and have enabled him to engage students and interns, motivating and stimulating them to understand the core value of compassionate and ethical behaviors in our daily interactions with humanity.

簡介
本講將由電影《漢娜鄂蘭:真理無懼》談起,分析鄂蘭於1963年在《艾希曼耶路撒冷大審紀實》提出的「惡之平庸」(the banality of evil)。鄂蘭拒絕自稱為哲學家,然而若脫離歐洲哲學傳統的脈絡,則難以理解她對現代世界的反思。鄂蘭指出極權主義的罪惡之處,在於破壞人與人之間的連繫,令人變得孤立(isolated),從而不再能夠通過聯合政治行動而為世界打開新的面貌。於是,人們不一定出於邪惡之動機而作惡,但人們對事情失去判斷力,不加以深思熟慮(thoughtless),就會如艾希曼般釀成反人類的罪行。鄂蘭超越柏拉圖以來的哲學傳統,不再蔑視政治議題,有當代學者稱鄂蘭的思想為政治現象學(phenomenology of the political),以突顯哲學如何面對政治的種種危機,而又不淪為統治的工具。

戴遠雄 在大學教授人文學和通識課程,主要研究當代法國哲學和現代歐洲哲學。

Brief Description

We are going to prolong Arendt's philosophical reflections on the banality of evil and the political world starting from von Trotta's film Hannah Arendt (2012). Although it is well known that Arendt refused to be named as philosopher, one could gain a better understanding of Arendt's insistence on the problem of evil by referring to the relevant discussions in modern European philosophy. In Eichmann in Jerusalem (1963), Arendt deepened her remarkable analyses of the totalitarian regimes first appeared in The Origins of Totalitarianism (1951). We are going to revisit some of her important insights in revealing the constitutive processes of totalitarianism, like rendering individuals superficial, forming isolated subjects, alienating the capacity of judging and consequently alienating the public world of political actions. All these, in the eyes of Arendt, bring about the phenomenon of thoughtlessness in the present epoch. Nowadays more and more scholars recognize Arendt's phenomenological way of thinking as the distinctive contribution to the contemporary arena of philosophy and political theories.

Mr. Jacky Tai: He is teaching humanities and general education in universities. His research interests include contemporary French philosophy and modern European philosophy.
