More About This Textbook

Overview

"We become what we love," states Jim Garrison in Dewey and Eros:
Wisdom and Desire in the Art of Teaching. This provocative book represents a major new interpretation of Dewey's education philosophy.
It is also an examination of what motivates us to teach and to learn, and begins with the idea of education of eros (i.e.,
passionate desire)-"the supreme aim of education" as the author puts it-and how that desire results in a practical philosophy that guides us in recognizing what is essentially good or valuable.
Garrison weaves these threads of ancient wisdom into a critical analysis of John Dewey's writings that reveal an implicit theory of eros in reasoning, and the central importance of educating eros to seek "the Good."
