Still "Learning to Be Human": The Radical Educational Legacy of John Macmurray
Fielding, Michael
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v55 n3 p461-472 2013
This article explores some of the key themes of John Macmurray's recently published lecture, "Learning to be Human". It focuses initially on three elements of his argument: relationships in education; education and the economy; and our corrosive obsession with technique. It then utilises Macmurray's views to develop a typology of schooling intended to help us understand why so much of what we do now is counter-productive and how we might go about doing things differently in ways expressive of a more generous view of human flourishing.
