College of Humanities and Social Sciences

Taipei Medical University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) seeks to make progress in answering the questions that Immanuel Kant articulated in his Critique of Pure Reason: “What can I know? What ought I to do? What may I hope?”

Introduction
CHSS is part of a major expansion that Taipei Medical University is undergoing, an expansion that includes Colleges of Engineering and Management. Established in 2011, CHSS is developing Graduate Institutes and Research Centers that investigate the Humanities, Cognitive Neuroscience, Law, and the Social Sciences, while also celebrating the Arts. Befitting this early stage of development, much of our focus is on the promotion of inter-disciplinary research and pedagogy that complements the already well-established Colleges of Medicine, as well as our university’s network of three hospitals. The goal is to create a comprehensive university by building upon our historical foundation.

Graduate Institute of Humanities in Medicine(GIHM)
The Graduate Institute of Humanities in Medicine (GIHM) was the first Graduate Institute to be formally established. As its name suggests, it was intended as an initial step toward integrating some aspects of the Humanities with the Medical Arts and Sciences. Now, however, as CHSS is maturing, GIHM is beginning to hone its focus, and evolve toward a concentration on social issues, including both the Sociology of Medicine and STS (Science, Technology, and Society).

Brain and Consciousness Research Center (BCRC)

The first major research center, which was formally established in early 2015, is the Brain and Consciousness Research Center (BCRC). BCRC sponsors projects of both large and small scale, its first major project having been an fMRI, MRS, EEG, and subjective experience investigation of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), conducted in close collaboration with Shuang Ho Hospital. Subsequent multi-modal projects, which have already begun, include, but are not limited to: sleep disorder, anesthesia, schizophrenia, unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (vegetative state), and moral judgment.

Cultivation of Young Scholars: Philosophy of Consciousness(CYSPC)
An important feature of CHSS’s pedagogy and service is sponsorship of a nationwide project, The Cultivation of Young Scholars: Philosophy of Consciousness. This project, which is funded by Taiwan’s Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), is being managed in coordination with the philosophy departments of National Chung Cheng University, National Tsing Hua University, National Yang Ming University, and National Chengchi University. We are funding student research projects, study groups, workshops, conferences, students who range from university freshmen to Ph.D. candidates. Moreover, in order to help students understand opportunities for inter-disciplinary work, some of the Young Scholars activities are sponsored in cooperation with BCRC.

Center for Arts and Humanities (CAH)

The second major research center, the Center for Arts and Humanities (CAH), was formally established during the Fall of 2015. CAH has already begun a series of pedagogical programs that include formal classes for regularly enrolled students, lectures, and book publications. These pedagogical aspects will expand and be integrated with various lines of research and faculty recruitment over the next several years. In addition, CAH intends to develop a rubric of courses under the two major themes of “Arts and Humanities” and “Art of Living,” to be offered regularly by full-time faculty or guest lecturers. These courses can be used to fulfill some General Education requirements, as well as elective credits in the Humanities. In order to develop holistic personalities as well as provide culture and language training, CAH will vigorously recruit visiting scholars, both locally and from abroad, for courses to be taught in either Mandarin or English.
