Example text

Pp. 79–80). It is, as I have put it in the Prologue, an infantile attitude, not a grown-up one. , p. , p. 86). The event of creation is thus that of bringing being to life by affirming its goodness. That is all there is to creation. And it is a very risky business, not a matter of omnipotence. We might even say that engaging in the business of creation in this way expresses a belief. But not belief in the cognitive sense, not belief in a set of propositions as in “I believe this, this, and that,” but a belief in life, in the goodness of life, and in goodness itself.

Doing so allows me to show how the weakness of education matters for what, to me, indeed lies at the heart of any educational endeavor, which is the emergence of human subjectivity. As education is at heart a dialogical process, I focus, in Chapter 2, on the theme of communication. In the first part of the chapter I discuss how communication has been understood and theorized in the work of John Dewey, both at a general level and with regard to educational processes and practices. Unlike the sender-receiver model that still seems to inform much commonsense thinking about communication—in education and elsewhere—Dewey provides a conception of communication as a meaning-generating process where things are literally made “in common” through interaction and participation.

Yahweh does not so much give Adam and Eve life as he gives them a test of life. ); this is unlike the story of Elohim where life is what Derrida (1992a) would refer to as an unconditional gift. , p. 69). There are two important observations here—observations that also have relevance for the discussion about education that is to follow. , p. 69). While Elohim appears to be willing to take this risk—knowing that real trust is always without ground, that it cannot be “returned,” so to speak, that it is unconditional (see Biesta 2006a, chapter 1)—Yahweh remains distrustful of his creation, appears to be unable to take the risk, or is only able to take the risk as a conditional risk.
