عنوان مقاله [English]
The current research is intended to explain methods of acquiring episteme in Farabi’s Rational Training. In this research that employs Frankena’s inductive method, the data are collected on the basis of deductive content analysis in line with describing concepts associated with the subject of the study. To this aim, meanings and concepts related to objectives of rational training in Farabi’s thought are described and then concepts are listed in similar categories and realistic philosophical propositions associated with them are identified. Finally, through Frankena’s inductive method, objectives, principles and methods of rational training in Farabi’s thought are derived. The findings reveal that, according to Farabi, episteme is acquired through one of the following methods including 1) learning knowledge, 2) observation and 3) acquiring experience. Considering the findings, it can be concluded that giving a more careful and meticulous look at these methods can play a vital role for syllabus designers, educational planners and teachers in planning and setting provisions in fulfilling rational training. Schools, as a small social unit, can play a critical role toward this objective.
