Description

Reflects on contemporary humanistic pedagogy by exploring the limits of the teachable. Revisiting the Bildungsroman, this work studies the pedagogical relationship from the point of view of the mentor rather than of the young hero. It examines writers such as Rousseau, Sterne, Goethe, Nietzsche, D H Lawrence, F R Leavis, and J M Coetzee.
