This book makes a strong case for free schooling, comparing the mind of Albert Einstein – who said much – to Zen conscious practice, which says little but encompasses everything. Examining the work of brain researchers, neuroscientists, physicists, and other scholars to illuminate the commonalities between Einstein’s thought and the Zen practice of paying attention to one’s present experience, the book reveals their many similarities, showing the development of self-direction as a key to fostering compassionate consideration of others and to harmonious, semi-effortless learning and living. Examples demonstrate that students who choose to study what is interesting, remarkable, and important for them tend to become more like Einstein than students with the rigid school curricula; students who are free to learn often demonstrate empathy, and less rigid rule-following, while involved in the process of imaginatively becoming their own oracles and self-educators.

The acceptance of reason with uncertainty can help learners successfully manage their occupations and lives during the accelerations prominent in the 21st century. As William Ayers states: “Pritscher tilts his lance at the petrified orthodoxy we call teaching and learning, inviting us on a wild journey into the heart of education.” The book elaborates on David Geoffrey Smith’s question: “Why does so much educational ‘research’ today seem so unenlightening, repetitive and incapable of moving beyond itself? The answer must be because it is ‘paradigmatically stuck’, and cannot see beyond the parameters of its current imaginal space.” The book offers help to go beyond the current imaginal space through what is called kaplearning. Kaplearning can help the reader to defamiliarize the common by facilitating “letting go”. Pritscher takes an avant-garde approach to learning, pushing the boundaries of the long accepted norm “certainty and order” and modernizing education by trading the old “optimal way” with a new skill to “reason with uncertainty”. This resilience to ambiguity is precisely where human intelligence has full advantage over machine intelligence. Pritscher’s book is impressive and remarkably well-timed, as recent articles in Nature show that online game players can make surprising breakthroughs in science with a well-chosen confluence of effective sources and a bit of creativity with protein folding. Citizen science has led to solutions that scientists and computer simulators have struggled for years, proving that even with little or no scientific training, knowing what to ignore can invite innovating ways to think and execute. Pritscher’s clear and wise insight will definitely serve as an inspiration for the next generation of educators, and prepare the necessary skills for young learners to successfully compete in the future. - Sandra Okita - Department of Math, Science and Technology, Teachers College, Columbia University.

A New York Times bestseller "An exhilirating exploration of the meaning of it all." --Robert Wright, author of The Evolution of God Drawn from Krista Tippett's Peabody Award-winning public radio program, the conversations in this profoundly illuminating book reach for a place too rarely explored in our ongoing exchange of ideas--the nexus of science and spirituality. In fascinating interviews with such luminaries as Freeman Dyson, Janna Levin, Parker Palmer, and John Polkinghorne, Krista Tippett draws out the connections between the two realms, showing how even those most wedded to hard truths find spiritual enlightenment in the life of experiment and, in turn, raise questions that are richly, theologically evocative. Whether she is speaking with celebrated surgeon and author Sherwin Nuland about the biology of the human spirit or questioning Drawin biographer James Moore about his subject's religious beliefs, Tippett offers a rare look at the way our best minds grapple with the questions for which we all seek answers. From the Trade Paperback edition.

In this remarkable and inspirational study, the author takes the view that "ki" can profitably be compared with European philosophy: in China, the "ki" thread appears as an original primal ki ("genki"), which is the source of all things and affairs; in Europe, the thinking goes in the opposite direction."

This book illuminates what must always be at the heart of powerful schooling and authentic learning. Its focus is on free learning, with an emphasis on early East Asian thought as a vehicle through which learning may emerge. The volume describes learning as helping the learner become more conscious, more aware. As such the authors explain how quality learning encompasses all learning that is chosen by the learner. It is non-judgmental and their idea is that if learning is done by choice then direct harm will be mitigated because quality, willed learning is not just about the individual, but includes others — it is community focused as well as self-determined. In the first part of the volume the authors look specifically at how quality willed learning can inform the state and how it can protect the rights of children. The second part looks at what quality willed learning can mean to leaders. In the last part the authors look at what it can mean for teachers and finally what it can mean for the learners themselves.
