德威学生居然用相声讲哲学

惊!为何德威两学生竟在演讲时公开说相声?为何如此严肃的话题会引来听众的阵阵欢笑?

 

10月22日的塾计划的讲师是Robin和Chris两位同学,他们预期想要给大家做一些关于哲学的学科介绍,如哲学是什么和哲学的作用等。然而这些内容都是相对于来说较为“干货”枯燥的,如何解决同学们在听讲中会分神、玩游戏甚至睡着的情况就成了他们最大的难题。为此,两人大胆创新,将这次塾计划的形式从单纯的讲解变成了似演似讲的形式。将这些烧脑的内容融入于那些易被接受的梗和场景中,在轻松幽默活跃的氛围中,同学们既可以收获开心,又可以真真实实地得到哲学硬货。

伴随着一个名叫’鲲鲲’的喷火龙的小故事的出现,第一个重点也随之出现——哲学的思辨工具。顾名思义,这些工具的作用都是帮助哲学家们解决和简化一些他们正在思考的问题的。而Robin和Chris两人主要介绍的就是奥卡姆剃刀和牛顿的烈焰激光剑这两个思辨工具。借助着这两个重要的思辨工具,两人成功将“鲲鲲”这条喷火龙成功斩灭,现场化身屠龙勇士,一刀999,装备全靠爆。

就像练武功要有门派一样,学哲学也需要有自己的门派,不然也只是闲云野鹤。在大家的爆笑声中,两人话锋一转,开始介绍起来哲学的基本门派和康德的重要思想。从经验主义到理性主义,从笛卡尔到休谟,Chris用一个个例子和小故事让同学们明白了其中的区别。其中各个学派的理论都似乎很有说服性,因此两个主义的矛盾也随之到达了巅峰。接下来,对于康德的讲解有效的抵消了同学们的很多困扰。康德,一个调和了笛卡尔经验主义和培根的理性主义的哲学巨匠,在哲学发展史上拥有极其重大的贡献。他提出的物自体和十二个先天范畴更是让同学们深有感触。

有趣的事实

Q:为什么是以相声+lecture的形式?

A:相声这个主意是一个同学提出来的,觉得这样会让演讲很有意思,且我们也惊奇地发现相声真好玩。lecture是我们认为“得给大家灌输点干货”所必需的演讲形式。

 

Q:为什么海报封面有一个Van先生?

A:我们觉得Van先生对拥有相同哲学爱好的老乡的吸引能力极强,是近代流行哲学史中最受年轻人喜爱的哲学家之一,所以想借其靓照勾引大家来听。






Q:为什么演讲主题是哲学?

A:我们认为基础哲学知识是必备却不被重视的。它能极度有效地提高一个人的思辨能力,知识运用范畴覆盖了所有领域。哪里有“问题”,哪里就有哲学。正是如此,我们渴望将其推广传播,后续还会准备第二次演讲和其他活动,请大家乖乖站好,别迟且到。

Q:这次演讲的准备工作很辛苦吧?

A:对我们来说还行。我们一人写了大部分的稿子,一人做了ppt。

Q:这次演讲达到预期效果了么?

A:实话实说达到了。我们还在担心我们在台上讲相声台下观众不笑的尴尬情景,但当时观众的反馈还是很不错的。直到我讲知识点时都没人在打游戏呢。希望下次他们能多拉些朋友一起来听。

 

 


 

Lecture Corner: Philosophy in Stand-up Comedy
 
Thanks to students Chris N. and Ronin W. for providing the content:
 
Did two students deliver a standup comedy routine during lecture corner? How did such a serious topic make the audience laugh?
 
Robin and Chris were expected to give an introduction to philosophy, such as what it is and its role. However, such material is about as interesting as dried pasta. Keeping students engaged in lecture corner can be a real challenge as they often get distracted, play games or even fall asleep. To avoid this the pair changed the traditional format of lecture corner to be more like a stand-up comedy routine. The logic behind this was that in a relaxed and humorous environment, the audience will be more receptive to the philosophical message they were delivering.
 
On 22nd October, they started with a short story about a fire-breathing dragon named Kunkun. The first focus emerged:  Using philosophy as speculation tool. As the name implies, the role of these tools is to help philosophers solve and simplify some of the problems they are thinking about. Robin and Chris introduced two speculative tools in the form of Occam's razor and Newton's flaming laser sword. With these two important thinking tools, the two succeeded in destroying the fire-breathing dragon of Kunkun.
 
Just as practicing martial arts requires self-discipline, learning philosophy also needs the right mental state. In the laughter of everyone, the pair began to introduce the basic tenets of philosophy and Kant's important ideas. From empiricism to rationalism and from Descartes to Hume, Chris used examples and short stories to let the students understand key differences. The theory of each school seems to be very persuasive, so the contradiction between the two theories must reach a peak. Kant, a philosophical master who reconciled Descartes empiricism and Bacon's rationalism, has made a significant contribution to the history of philosophy. The object self and the twelve congenital categories that he proposed are even more deeply felt by the students.
 
Fun facts:
 
Q: Why is it in the form of stand-up comedy + lecture?
A: The idea of stand-up comedy was proposed by a classmate. I think this would make the speech very interesting, and we were surprised to find that the discussion was really fun.
 
Q: Why is there a Mr. Van on the cover of the poster?
A: We think that Mr. Van is very attractive to the fellows who have the same philosophical outlook. He is one of the most popular philosophers in the history of modern pop philosophy.
 
Q: Why is the theme of the speech philosophy?
A: We believe that basic philosophy knowledge is a must but is not valued enough. Philosophy can effectively improve a person's thinking ability, and the application of this knowledge covers all fields. Where there is a"problem", there is philosophy.
 
Q: Was the preparation for this speech very hard?
A: Yes, it is okay for us. Chris wrote most of the manuscript and Ronin made the ppt.
 
Q: Did the speech achieve the expected results?
A: No one was playing games during the lecture and everyone was awake! I hope that next time we can get more students to attend.
