Abstract: The dissociation of education from philosophy is caused by the diversion of modern scientific epistemology and the knowledge transition of education, which results in the identity crisis of modern educational philosophy. In essence, the dissociation of education from philosophy is the separation of education and human. Knowledge itself does not change the moral foundation of modern society where the perfection of humanity is still the paramount goal of education and the cornerstone of constructing knowledge society order. No matter how society evolves, the relationship between education and human is always the essential issue of educational philosophy and the reverting to humanity is the logical starting point of reviving educational philosophy. The ultimate proposition of educational philosophy is exploring how to achieve the goodness of education, and realize the goodness of human through education.
