MARTINS, Ronie Von y FARINA, Cynthia. The wreck learning: Moby Dick, ahab, a reader and the wall. Educ. rev. [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.2, pp. 21-40. ISSN 0102-4698. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-46982011000200003.
This paper presents a learning experience through a literary work and some philosophical ideas. It is narrated by a reader - a character fascinated by the encounter with Melville's Moby Dick - who tells the experience of loss of meaning with the educational universe and with the universe of teaching and learning. To face such an experience, he seeks to ally with some of Deleuze and Guattari's concepts. Thus he understands that philosophical thinking not only provides references, but also pushes him towards directions he himself had not even thought about. Along with literary and philosophical characters, he lives and seeks to express an experience of learning: 'learning from the wreck'. He realizes that learning does not end with the conquest of a piece of knowledge, but rather, it has an intimate relationship with the letting go of oneself.
