about

This volume examines Otto Friedrich Bollnow's philosophical approach to education, which brought Heidegger's existentialism together with other theories of what it is to be "human." This introduction to Bollnow's work begins with a summary of the theoretical influences that Bollnow synthesized, and goes on to outline his highly original account of experiential "educational reality"--namely, as a reality alternately "harmonious" or "broken," but fundamentally "guided." This book will be of value to scholars and students of education and philosophy, especially those interested in bringing larger existential questions into connection with everyday educational engagement.
Ralf Koerrenz is Professor of Historical Education and Global Education at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany.Norm Friesen is Associate Professor of Educational Technology at the College of Education, Boise State University, USA.
