On the Relationship Between the Rhythm of Education and Human Society

Wanqiu ZHENG


The founder for process philosophy, Alfred North Whitehead, once clearly proposed the principles for “the rhythm of education”. With the increasing popularity of process philosophy, people became more aware of the importance of “process”, starting to turn from inquiry into the ontology of things to paying close attention on the “existence” itself, which in education appears as emphasizing people’s living conditions and way of practice. However, because of the complicating factors of society and people, in the actual process of education, people do not have a comprehensive understanding and accurate grasp to the issue of the rhythm of education, which in turn results in the chaos in the rhythm of education, causing education to deviate from the rules and needs of social development and people’s physical and mental development. Social development and people’s physical and mental development all have their own rhythm, therefore, only when the rhythm of education matches the rhythm of these two can it be made possible to have a harmonious and sustainable development for people, society, and education itself.
