  Foucault on care of the self: connecting writing with life-long learning
Titel: Foucault on care of the self: connecting writing with life-long learning
Auteur: Faust, Mark A.
Verschenen in: International journal of leadership in education
Paginering: Jaargang 1 (1998) nr. 2 pagina's 181-193
Jaar: 1998-04
Inhoud: This article highlights ways of writing that enhance teachers' performance and professionalism by foregrounding their role as learners. The context for this discussion is provided by Michel Foucault's important research focusing on the ancient Greek precept, 'take care of yourself (epimelesthai sautou). Foucault's description of specific 'practices of the self,' including self-sponsored writing, is shown to be remarkably consistent with what experienced, successful teachers say has enabled them to maintain a high level of enthusiasm for their work. Recent scholarship documenting the appeal and power of teacher stories, narratives, and portfolios is presented in light of Foucault's concept of writing as 'self-formation'. The article concludes with an appeal to educational leaders who are urged to explore possibilities that arise when 'care of the self is adopted as a key reference point for envisioning thoughtful reform aimed at improving the quality of life and life-long learning in schools. We have hardly any remnant of the idea in our society, that the principal work of art which one has to take care of, the main area to which one must apply aesthetic values, is oneself, one's life, one's existence. Michel Foucault (1984a: 362)
