about this item

This book explores how contemporary educational research and curriculum occlude the vitaland enduring relationship between education and well-being. Beginning with the consequencesof the reductive tendencies of educational research and moving through the consequencesof the technical and instrumental tendencies of curriculum, this bookchallenges how contemporary education as a whole reduces human beings to“things” and funnels and stamps them according to predetermined knowledge formsrepresentative of the dominant socioeconomic ideology. Through a philosophicalexploration of original conceptions of education and well-being, this bookattempts to recover an understanding of education that embodies how we learn touncover and relate to our own possibilities for a more meaningful life which isa life of well-being.
