Philosophy of Education in a Poor Historical Moment: A Personal Account

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Under the post-metaphysical sky "old" humanistic-oriented education is possible solely at the cost of its transformation into its negative, into a power that is determined to diminish human potentials for self-exaltation. Nothing less than total metamorphosis is needed to rescue the core of humanistic genesis: the quest for edifying Life and resistance to the call for "home-returning" into the total harmony that is promised to us within nothingness.
