On Mobilizing Global Democracy

(p.154) 8. Canons or Cannons?
In Search of the Good Life

Fred Dallmayr

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses a clue found in Plato's Meno which indicates that people can learn only what they implicitly already know and that teaching is a kind of mutual disclosure. It asks whether it is possible to learn across cultures and comments on the meaning of canons of learning and on the quality of teaching as a mode of learning. The chapter finally draws lessons from these explorations for the enterprise of mobilizing democracy today.

Keywords:   Meno, Plato, teaching, mutual disclosure, canons of learning, democracy, culture quality
