The School of Life

いろいろな分野への入門としてこのYoutubeチャンネルが良いかも。すべてのビデオに良質の英語字幕がついている。これがテオドール・アドルノを紹介するやつ↓


I recently came across this great web channel:The School of Life

.... I think this could be a great tool for teaching students about the "history of ideas" [mostly Western stuff, but some Eastern as well]....

The channel does not have accompanying texts; but it would take me only a few minutes to type each video out... Each video [and the accompanying text that I transcribe] would constitute one assignment for one class period.....

Such activities would kill two birds with one stone: they are both excellent introductions to the subjects students are interested in [students are starving to learn about this stuff]... and they are also excellent English practice.....

Here, for example, is the video on Plato's Allegory of the Cave: 


The videos also have [fairly accurate] English subtitles too....
