    Valuable conversation, worthy of deep reflection. It must always be worth considering the relationship between thinking and doing, and how doing so often changes thinking.

    Also, the context of that doing, how is that shaped? whether we must inherit the determinants that fix our options or they are necessarily responsive to and ultimately shaped by innately acquired innovative experience.

    My own view is that education is the legacy of symbolic means not the end itself; only ever the formal methodological key to further initiation, but never its reductive guarantee. That remains for us to decide, how we negotiate our mortality.

  3. I wish Paulo Freire was required reading for every College of Education student and future teacher.
