Our innate desire to learn defines us as a species.
What we should teach the new generations is an ongoing daily debate in many quarters, though it is rarely related to the life and society we long for. We all know, but we often forget that a philosophical approach and a critical spirit are perennial requisites for the future, however unpredictable the latter may be.
The thoughts brought together in this book reflect the experience of a secondary school philosophy teacher, but are inspired by lessons from a great master: nature.
“Whoever educates carries a gardener within himself, he sows the seeds of curiosity that enable his pupils to flower within themselves.”
