Unserious Docility

Thomas P. Harmond reviewed Docilitas: On Teaching and Being Taught, and On the Unseriousness of Human Affairs: Teaching, Writing, Playing, Believing, Lecturing, Philosophizing, Singing, Dancing, by James V. Schall, at Modern Age.

"Schall’s critique of the currently dominant model of teaching and learning leads directly to his critique of the entire anthropological and even metaphysical basis on which it is founded. This is why Schall says that human affairs are 'unserious': because we are not the highest things, and we exist already in a relationship to higher things."
