Humankind: Shadows and Images.
The author examines several images of the nature of man and focuses on "homo ludens"--man as one who plays. The author then examines the role of play in children and concludes that the spirit of play and the world of make-believe must be restored in learning and teaching if our education is to help raise future generations that care, share, and dare.
