Teaching as Cure and Care: A Therapeutic Metaphor.
Elias, John L.
Religious Education, v85 n3 p436-44 Sum 1990
Uses the curing and caring aspects of medicine as an analogy for what education can be. Observes that the divinity expressed through medicine's ability to cure and care for people also can be expressed through teaching when it attempts to eliminate ignorance, prejudice, and misinformation. (DB)
