|dc.description.abstract||This thesis aimed at elucidation for ontological aspect of life education grounded upon “Being and Time” and “Truth and Method”. It is broken down into the following perspectives: First, the question of the meaning of being is expounded to bring forth a life education by question-asking and circumspection. This is so as to provide an exploration guide to question and quest for the meaning of being and to circumspect one’s own life. Next, the everyday understanding of Dasein’s being-one’s-self in “Being and Time” is interpreted so as to enlighten a life education with awareness of being in the world. The contextual awareness of one’s life concern is by means of sign, reference, and the involvement totality as orientation. The being-with others and the Dasein-with of others are also elaborated. Then, with the interpretation of Heidegger’s analysis on temporality, Dasein’s ontological meaning in its totality is brought forth. The being-toward-death, the call of conscience, and the temporality of Dasein are elaborated. The life education is enhanced with understanding of the mortality, possibility, and existentiality meaning of Dasein. At last, life education is a process of cultivation (Bildung) of Dasein. By means of “Truth and Method”, we can contemplate again on the meaning and value of humanistic tradition so as to bring forth and extend an understanding for spiritual, other’s, and self’s being. As conclusion, philosophy inspires and refreshes questioning and questing for life. With philosophy as a fundamental ground for life education, questioning for life is a decent act of philosophy. Furthermore, the ultimate aim of life education culminates in each one takes due action to actualize the meaning of one’s own being and builds harmonic communion relationship with others. With such an aim in advance, Gadamer’s philosophical thinking on application: “Understanding proves itself as make-happening.” is the best leading guide. Any comprehension in life needs to be fulfilled by an action of actualization. Once students realize what the meaning and value of their own life being, they will surely respond it with corresponding realization.
