On Seeking the Truth and Goodness of Textbooks

Shi Ou;Liu Yanlin;College of Education,Captial Normal University;  
To write an excellent textbook,we need to deal with a series of complex relationships.The most basic and important one is the relationship between truth and goodness.Textbooks bear the burden of spreading truth and revealing errors.They also have the mission of leading goodness and punishing evil.The former is the embodiment of seeking truth and involves the scientific standards of textbooks;the latter is the embodiment of seeking goodness and involves the moral and ethical standards of textbooks.Achieving two standards of truth and goodness at the same time is the essential quality for all excellent textbooks.In theory and practice,the pursuit of truth and goodness in textbooks can be balanced.However,balancing is not easy,and conflict is the common condition.In textbooks,goodness prevails over truth.The pursuit of giving priority to goodness is the instructive requirement of textbook texts,and the embodiment of textbook texts with limited content and limited capacity.We should be highly vigilant in prioritizing the goodness,otherwise it can bring huge risks.One of the risks is that it may be too subjective and cause disagreement;the second risk is that it can be easily exploited to do bad things in the name of goodness;the third risk is that it is easy to suppress the truth with goodness and weaken the efforts of seeking truth;the fourth risk is that it may become a reason for textbooks to be boring.
