Varto, Juha The Sins of the Fathers


Society has become educative. Even those areas of life that have nothing to do with growing up or education have become part of the pedagogic revolution, with the probable aim of defeating original sin once and for all. The army, working life, competitive sports, family, intimate relationships, health, religion and art have become pedagogic projects.

The author’s intention is to highlight topics and forms of speech in education. Even without education, everyone naturally becomes something, but some do not cope, and some turn into outcasts. In most cases, the reason for this lies in abstract issues, in what is missing, and, especially, in things left unspoken.

The question about the childhood is always tied to adulthood, for which child education actually aims. This is the very question that is always left unasked. Are we the adults into whom the current and future children should grow? And if we are not, who are?
