On the Need for Dionysian Education in Schools Today
Steel, Sean
Educational Theory, v64 n2 p123-141 Apr 2014
Although much has been written about Friedrich Nietzsche's views on education over the years, and much has also been written about Dionysus, god of wine and ecstasy, very little attention has been given to the meaning of, and need for, Dionysian education. In this article, Sean Steel attempts to begin that project. Drawing Nietzsche's articulation of the Dionysian, Apollonian, and anti-Dionysian into the orbit of broader scholarship on Dionysus, Steel invites readers to think about what a Dionysian education might look like in a modern-day school setting, as well as to consider what challenges exist for the implementation of such a vision of education.
