Dr. Edgar Morin, an eminent sociologist and philosopher, discusses his work on Seven Complex Lessons in Education for the Future, addressing themes related to knowledge, identity and shared global challenges.
“It is essential to teach and learn and see the bigger picture and more complex picture to understand each other. We need to teach and instill the capacity to deal with the uncertainties in life”. “Living is to navigate the sea of uncertainties and make quick decisions which might bring in successful outcomes and at times they can even backfire”. Dr Morin highlighted that the compartmentalisation of discipline-based knowledge in teaching and research can obstruct in tackling fundamental global problems.
