A new Perspective of student Ideological and Political Work Paradigm: Based on embodied Cognition

Xiaohong ZHAO, Quanyong XIA


The concept of “paradigm” was put forward by American philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn, which has been widely used in various scientific researches. Under the influence of traditional cognitive science, the paradigm of students’ ideological and political work advocates the dualism of body and mind, pays attention to the cultivation of human spirit, and ignores or belfries the role of body in cognition, which has some drawbacks. The ideological and political paradigm of students from the perspective of embodied cognition adheres to the monism, advocates the integration of body, mind and mind, and has the characteristics of embodied, situational and experiential. It is a brand-new paradigm of students’ ideological and political work. In practice, this paradigm forms a new path of students’ ideological and political work, including investigation and analysis, content and way, participation and identification, complementation and guidance.
