Philosophy of education: a learning

Fernando Bárcena About the author

This paper has as purpose put the question of philosophy of education as something that has nothing to do with his essence (an ontological issue), or with its significance (a question hermeneutics), but with the narration, in a deleuzian's sense, of a apprenticeship: apprenticeship of a man of letters. Raised in this way, what matters, then, is a poetic question: how I being present into present? Accordingly, the present paper aims to offer, by way of autobiographical narrative, the topic philosophy of education such as the discovery of an apprentice and, in this sense, as a sort of Bildungsroman.
