When we talk about education today, we tend to avoid the retoric and inegalitarian overtones. But the charged personal encounter between master and disciple s precisly what interests George Stiner in this book, a sustained reflect6ion on the infinitely complex and subtle interplay of power, trust, and passions in the most profound sorts of pedagogy. Based on Steiner´s Norton Lectures on the art and lore of teaching, Lessons of the Masters evokes a host of exemplary figures, including Socrates and Plato, Jesus and his disciples, Virgil and Dante, Heloise and Abelardo, Tucho Brahe and Johan Kepler, the Baal Shem Tov, Confucian and Buddhist sages, Edmund Husserl and Martin Heidegger, Nadia Boulanger, and Knute Rockne.
