about this item

This book offers an educational reading of Spinoza’s moral theory, setting up a critical dialogue between educational theory and recent studies which highlight the centrality of ethics in Spinoza’s overall philosophy. By placing his work in a contemporary educational context, chapters explore a counterintuitive conception of education as an ethical project, aimed at overcoming the desire to seek short-term satisfaction and troubling the influential concept of the student as consumer. Dahlbeck demonstrates that Spinoza’s moral theory can be seen as furthering an educational ideal, where notions of freedom and self-preservation provide the conceptual core of a coherent philosophy of education.
