Love and Compassion : Exploring Their Role in Education, Paperback / softback Book

Love and Compassion : Exploring Their Role in Education Paperback / softback


Academics often speak about love for their subject, mathematicians discuss their love for figures and numbers, and elementary school teachers speak about their love of children.

As multidimensional as love is, it is often a taboo subject relative to teachers and students.

In Love and Compassion, John P. Miller explores different forms of love, including self-love, the love of others, compassion, the love of learning, and cosmic love, and how these dimensions of love have the potential to improve education. Love and Compassion is both a practical and conceptual work, and will interest those involved in the study and practise of holistic and contemplative education.

In addition to the seven dimensions of love, Miller's evaluation includes nonviolent action, the love of beauty, and how they are crucial to the practise of teaching.
