Wu wants to share his belief and pursuit in "Interdisciplinary Learning and Independent Enquiring" with his friends and students.
Interdisciplinary Learning indicates a life style in balanced and proactive learning practice . He has learned mathematics, scientific philosophy, information management, web business, digital contents, literature/language, humanities, and music. Upon his experience, he believes everyone has the potential to develop all of those interests.
Some people advocate "Two Cultures" in which one culture is into logics and numbers while the other is in search of arts and imagination; and the two cultures they do not talk to each other. Furthermore, they explain that human's brain has two hemispheres that separately control human's rational behavior or spiritual features. This theory sees half of the people has a good right brain and the other half is used to prosper left brain.
However, Wu would like to remind: human does have a holistic brain? doesn't he?
Many of people, explicitly or implicitly, follow the directions of "Two Cultures" by the cultivation effect from the modern education system that divides knowledge spectrum into "schools" and trivial majors.
Wu wants to clarify that majors are for categories of jobs and not for clusters of humans and grounded knowledge.
The greatest educators and masters always emphasize interdisciplinary development such as Confucius and Aristotle.
Independent Enquiring points out a skepticism philosophy and trained capability of good taste.
It is much easier to say "independent judgment" than to really implement it. People, unconsciously, are convinced to take evaluation from authority and common sense that are not necessary always to be true.
Wu wants to state the fact: in Europe, before the 15th century, the authority of knowledge, the power of explaining universe, the prestige symbol of truth was the church.
It happened in the history, it happens right now, and it will happen in the future. We are not really aware of it, if we do not have real independent characteristics.
