The query on the middle of the booklet is what may well an schooling with self-care and care-for-others seem like? Juxtaposing self-understanding during the approach to currere and the historic personality of hakbeolism (a idea indigenous to Korea relating one of those social prestige humans in achieving in response to a shared educational background), this e-book articulates how subjective reconstruction of self at the side of old research will be transformative, and the way this is prolonged to social swap. Articulating how having one’s personal average could be a method of constructing one’s lifestyles a piece of artwork, the writer seems to be at how Korean education workouts coercive care, disconfirmation, and the "whip of affection" for the children’s personal stable. Emphasis is given to the internalized prestige of those practices in either scholars and academics and to academics’ and fogeys’ culpability not just in exercise but additionally in reproducing those practices via themselves.
Going past describing and analysing the tutorial challenge of educational (intellectual) achievement-oriented schooling in accordance with competitive pageant, this booklet indicates how one can handle those concerns via autobiography (using the tactic of currere to reconstruct one’s subjectivity) and an ethic of care.
