Impudent Practices
Standish, Paul
Ethics and Education, v9 n3 p251-263 2014
This article explores aspects of eros in education in relation to ideas of indirectness associated with the French concept of "pudeur," sometimes translated as "modesty". It explores lines of thought extending through Emerson and Nietzsche but reaching back to Plato's "Symposium." This is a means of exposing the "impudence" of some aspects of contemporary education and of pointing towards a conception of eros that is otherwise obscured.
