Awareness of Wholes: The Ontological Difference as an Educative Source
Yosef-Hassidim, Doron
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v48 n8 p785-797 2016
Inspired by Heidegger's philosophy, this article calls for revisiting the role of education and offers an educational goal of examining the meaning of being a human being. Through interpreting the ontological difference, awareness of wholes is suggested as a crucial means for discovering new meanings about ourselves, and Heidegger's perception of art is examined as a source for developing this attentiveness. Hermeneutic implications for this educational approach are discussed.
