Le conversazioni e discussioni di Krishnamurti con ragazzi, genitori e insegnanti. Un libro che insegna che non si deve imparare dai libri.

"Il nocciolo della questione è l'educazione. È la comprensione totale dell'uomo e non l'accento su un frammento della sua vita... Tutti gli entusiasti del cambiamento esterno ignorano sempre i problemi fondamentali."

Book description
Krishnamurti heeft zich altijd veel met opvoeding beziggehouden. Zijn gesprekken en discussies met leerlingen en leraren van de door hem gestichte Brockwoodschool in Engeland, vormen het eerste deel van dit boek. De nadruk lig) duidelijk bij het leren in het dagelijks leven, zoals bijvoorbeeld in de verhouding met ande-
,,Er is een voortdurend leergebeuren aan de gang en zodra we dat stilzetten en alleen maar vanuit onze gezamenlijke kennis handelen gaat de (innerlijke) orde verloren."
Krishnamurli spreekt over tal van praktische moeilijkheden waar de leerlingen, die in een gemeenschap zonder gezag leven, mee zitten. Er zijn gesprekken over afhankelijkheid van elkaar, samenwerking, naaperij en conventie, over orde, over seks, over con-flictloos handelen, liefde en genegenheid.
We proeven in deze discussies de levendige en soms intieme sfeer, die tijdens zo'n gedachtenwisseling over deels alledaagse, deels veelomvattende problemen ontstaat.
Het tweede deel van dit boek geeft de gesprekken met ouders en opvoeders weer. Opvoedingsvragen blijken ouders, leraren en studenten even na aan het hart te liggen. In feite gaat hel hier om het kernprobleem van het leven, want de kiem van het leren ligt in het leven zelf!
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0753816873, Paperback)

Krishnamurti believed that “education is the heart of the matter.” His longstanding concern with the nature and problems of education led him to found schools in India, England, and America, and his conversations with students, teachers, and parents form the major part of Beginnings of Learning. These lively, often intimate exchanges turn on practical, everyday matters as well as wider philosophical issues, as Krishnamurti encourages his audience to appreciate that the beginning of wisdom is self-knowledge. Jiddu Krishnamurti was born in southern India in 1895 and died in 1986. The essence of his teachings is that societal change and world peace can only occur through a complete change of individual consciousness.
