Still 'Learning to Be Human': the radical educational legacy of John Macmurray

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

This article explores some of the key themes of John Macmurray's recently published lecture, 'Learning to be Human'. It focuses initially on three elements of his argument: relationships in education; education and the economy; and our corrosive obsession with technique. It then utilises Macmurray's views to develop a typology of schooling intended to help us understand why so much of what we do now is counter-productive and how we might go about doing things differently in ways expressive of a more generous view of human flourishing.
