Abstract

Emotions is complex reaction pattern that influence by experiential, behavioral and physiological elements. Emotions response by behavior or attitude differ for everyone and that makes person as human. Emotions as the basis for humanity is important for Pancasila and civic education in Indonesia. The humanity perspectives in Pancasila stated in the second principle, just and civilized humanity. The implementations of humanism in Indonesian society are not fully articulated because rarely discussed. Some argumentations are stated that humanism is western oriented and can be conflict with first principle, the religious principle. But the problem is that social construction makes women unnecessary to fully implement their role in society. The patriarchal perspective is still dominated in Indonesian society. This article will be discussed how emotions as basis for humanity can support civic education and importance without having to collide with the principles of the state such as respect for pluralism and individual autonomy. This is a theoretical study using Martha C. Nussbaum theory on Emotions. Her works on “Upheavals of Thought” and "Hiding from Humanity” are using a framework to understand the problem of civic education. The conclusion of this article will specifically address the importance of humanity in civic education in Indonesia.
