About this book

This book addresses the issue of de-spiritualization in education through an interdisciplinary lens. It draws on curriculum scholarship of Dwayne Huebner, Martin Heidegger’s interpretation of Plato’s allegory of the cave, Buddhism, theories and philosophies of quantum physics, and philosophical hermeneutics, among others. In doing so, the author identifies the relationship between spiritual truth and education and probes the nature of consciousness, self, and reality. On this basis, she works to explore curriculum as an experience of consciousness transformation vital to the essence and purpose of education and argues for reason with faith and faith with reason as well as the imperative of curriculum imbued with spiritual wisdom and lived experiences. 

About the authors

Elise L. Chu holds an MA in Curriculum Studies from the University of British Columbia, Canada. Her doctoral research focuses on enriching curriculum theories with Buddhism, new biology and cognitive science, and philosophical hermeneutics. By this transdisciplinary inquiry, she hopes to scrutinize the practical aspect of consciousness transformation and articulate an understanding of curriculum as play.
