Description

This study draws on a wide range of Sartre's writings, early and late, both philosophical and literary, to creat a Sartre-inspired philosophy of education. It highlights the need to give priority to questioning rather than to passivity, excellence rather than success, the avoidance of a kind of "objectivity" that precludes making moral judgements and condemning evil.

Contents

Part 1 Existence, psychology, education: existence precedes essence; questioning versus the curse of bad faith; child psychology; social philosophy and education. Part 2 Critique of educational policies: destructiveness of current educational policies; the curse of modern schools; responsibility for dead lives and teaching history. Part 3 Challenges for educators: teaching to fight evil; a worthy life - genuine learning and practical wisdom. Conclusion: the good teacher.
