By Daniel P. Liston (Editor), James W. Garrison (Editor) Paperback – Ed.2004

This book explores emotional aspects of daily educational practice all too often overlooked by theorists and education researchers, but well known to practitioners. These include such topics as eros, the pursuit of happiness, critical hope, vulnerability, mystery, and domestic tranquility. The contributors also examine grief, despair, discomfort, acceptance of ignorance, and loss of hope. While they explore regions outside the bounds of the explicit, cognitive, and categorical, their motivations are familiar: the desire to create hope, meaning, and mutual understanding in the pursuit of better classrooms, more equitable education, and more effective teacher education.

Review

"These insightful, heartfelt essays on teaching make for powerful reading. The authors write eloquently and they speak to educators at all levels of the system, from preschool through university. This is a book for teachers, teacher educators, researchers on teaching, and, crucially, for policy makers and administrators suffering under current mandates that force them to forget and deny their own educational passion and commitment."-David T. Hansen, author of "The Call to Teach and Director of the Program in Philosophy and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University "As calls to 'leave no child behind' sound in the halls of state power, this volume offers a more generative, though no less insistent, voice for the mostly lost but recoverable power of passion in education. These authors do not hesitate to see the many binding and disruptive energies of love in teaching and learning. "Teaching, Learning, and Loving is a hopeful, brave, disturbing, and brilliant book."-A. G. Rud, Purdue Univ
