Abstract

This chapter arises out of the transition from a PhD thesis on Heidegger’s phenomenology to my attempts to come to terms with ‘becoming a teacher’. The chapter will contain two avenues of exploration; the first providing an interpretation of the phenomenon of education in Heideggerian terms, the second attempting to show how Heidegger’s phenomenology might be constituted as a lived experience of teaching. The general aim of this chapter, as such, is to move from a purely theoretical Heideggerian exposition of the phenomenon of education to a way of applying this exposition to the practices of teaching.
