The Moral Logic of Perpetual Evolution: A Schoolteacher Looks at Technology in Education.
Gatto, John Taylor
SKOLE: The Journal of Alternative Education, v15 n1 p26-34 Win 1998
Examines technology in education as social engineering that discourages intellectual development and accustoms children to accepting without question a hidden stranger's mind-altering drills. Relates this perspective to Greek philosophers Thales and Heraclitus' differing thoughts on the purpose of education: solving the universal human dilemma of becoming human in a limited lifespan versus endlessly pursuing novelty, change, and "progress."
