Unthinkable education - Learning by mistakes in the global network

non fiction - education

In the globalised world of Western hyperindustrial democracies, lifelong education seems to be an imperative. But what is the real meaning of  teaching and learning today?
With his philosophical detachment, the author of this pamphlet denounces the trivialisation of education in the contemporary world, the intellectual misery of our times, the embrace bewteen politics, economy and technoscience, which seems to have the neoliberal market as the sole value to transmit.
Perticari – a teacher himself –  criticises any approach to education which implies a one-way relation from teachers to pupils and reclaims an "education through the lack": a pedagogical method taking advantage of shortcomings, ignorance, dysfunction, which could help young people to grow  adult and become informed and critical citizens, capable of imaging a different world.
His belief could be summed with the following saying: you only can learn from your mistakes. And this is especially true if you are a teacher.

Paolo Perticari (1959) teaches General Education and Philosophy of Education at Bergamo University. He is the author of several books about the meaning of education.
