Title: The refusal of wonder
Authors: Norris, Trevor
Keywords: wonder
refusal
education
transformation
pedagogical environment
Issue Date: 2006
Publisher: Philosophy of Education Society
Citation: Norris, T.(2006). The Refusal of Wonder. Philosophy of Education Yearbook, 221-223.
Abstract: Agreeing with Todd Rowen, this article emphasizes the transformative functions of wonder,and it observes what often passes for education instead simply narrows horizons, encourages routine, shuts down reflection, and reproduces thoughtlessness. The article claims that while Rowen is right to observe that wonder is not merely passive, its transformative possibilities are not exclusively subjective. Thus, even if or when wonder effectively stirs one’s passions, it does so in a profoundly political manner.Moreover, since wonder is deeply associated with the political, it may well be “refused.”
