Description:

Abstract:

What kind of life do we want for our children? Do we want to prepare them for life in a society filled with fear, in which merely functioning is enough? Or should we want them to lead a life filled with freedom, solidarity and happiness? Erwin Wagenhofer views the topic of “education” in a comprehensive and radical manner. Almost every discussion on the topic of education is reduced to advocating a competitive environment in every type of school, forcing pupils to provide their best performance. Wagenhofer, however, embarks on a search for the thought patterns which lie behind it. The things we learn shape our knowledge, but the way we learn shapes our way of thinking.
