Challenge for Education: Learning To Value the World Intrinsically.
Encounter: Education for Meaning and Social Justice, v14 n1 p4-16 Spr 2001
The key to breaking out of the problematic, dualistic, mechanist ontology is the recovery of our capacity to value the world intrinsically through the cultivation of aesthetic consciousness. The arts that enable a world view of co-emergence, participation, and intrinsic valuing, are suitable pedagogical tools for an education devoted to rediscovering our sacred bond to the world. (TD)
