This provocative examination of what motivates us to teach and to learn begins with the idea of eros (i.e., passionate desire), and how that desire results in a practical wisdom that guides us in recognizing what is essentially good or valuable. The author weaves these threads into a critical analysis of John Dewey's writings.
