Hoyoung Ahn
은유와 과학 융복합 교양교육의 만남
In these days, there are various social demands, the complex cultural receptions, and the uncharted future, with pointing out the closure of the studies, the interest of the science convergence in the general education is growing. The point of emphasis moving to the science in general education with having to understand the order and the law, cause that is based on the rational communication of the knowledge. Nowaday our knowledge incorporates with the part of the gigantic systems which is already made by the rational rules We would accept the rules in these systems, but per contra we dare to adventure with dreaming the novelty. Through the adventure the imagination and the creativity will have the vitality, then our knowledge could meet the creativity what move lively. I would survey the possibility of the metaphor as one of the passive adventure in that someone stress the importance of the creativity and the imagination. That is, we would inspect the possibility of the science convergence in the general education through the way expressed by the metaphor. I would focus on the discussion how the science expressed by the metaphor, and how the metaphor itself explained by the science. First of all, by the taking a look how rhetorics are applied at the language of the science, we could know how the science expressed by the metaphor. Then, if the human brain using the metaphor is evolved for long time, we could discuss scientifically how the metaphor itself explained by the science. Hence we could argue how the science have meet the metaphor in ‘the metaphor of the science’, and how the conceptual blending theory could meet the complex science in ‘the science of the metaphor’. Finally based on these discussions, we could investigate the encounter between the metaphor and the science convergence in the general education.
Key Words: Metaphor, Science Convergence, General Education, Conceptual Blending Theory, The Complex Science
