Philosophy of education in a poor historical moment: A personal account

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

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.
