Journey Into Time (Baritone Sax Solo with P | J.W. Pepper Sheet Music
But more than just being a change within time it is also a movement into time. Our limited and often confused understanding, Spinoza argued, stems from experiencing things only from a perspective within time. I think we can see this in some of his theories about teaching and learning.
Vygtoksy specifies that what he means by system is based upon on the model of mathematics. One implication of what Vygotsky is claiming about conceptual thought, following Spinoza, is that the role of the teacher is to help children move from experiencing things within time to understanding their meaning outside of time.

The fact is that we can only see things from within time and within contexts. That is just how thought works.

But if he was wrong, he was wrong in an illuminating kind of a way that can help us to understand what education is really all about. That there can be a movement into time as well as a movement in time is the essence of education. One way to re-interpret Vygotsky's ZPD is not that the teacher leads the child from a perspective within time to a perspective outside of time but that the teacher leads the child from seeing things only within one time context, that of the physical present, to being able to see the same things also from the point of view of other time contexts.
Science does not provide us with timeless truths — no more than does religion or art - science is an ongoing fallible dialogue about the truth of things, a dialogue between real people in real contexts.
However, the time and the space of the cultural dialogue of science is very different from the time and space of talk in a classroom. The time-space of the dialogue of science extends over thousands of years and is global in reach. The role of the science teacher in the classroom is to weave together the very large time-space perspective of science with the smaller and narrower time-space perspective of a face to face dialogue with a child in a classroom. It is one thing to observe a feather and a metal ball fall at the same rate in a vacuum chamber in a You Tube video perhaps ; it is quite another thing to derive from this an understanding of the concept of gravity.
Knowledge arises in science as the answer to questions that are asked within a dialogue. For a child to acquire conceptual understanding they need first to be a participant in the long-term dialogue of science. The Padua Baptistery, 14th century, Giusto de Menabuoi. The great danger of formal education on this one-way model, a danger articulated by Paulo Freire, Ivan Illich and many others, is that it can disempower children by removing their truth — the truth of their experience in the present moment — and replacing it with someone else's truth, a truth which leaves them feeling inadequate and unhappy.
But the ideal of education as a journey into time is about children finding more meaning in their present moments and not less. Michael Oakeshott, for example, wrote of education as giving children their birthright inheritance of culture so that they could become more fully human. But at other times he presents the Zone of Proximal Development as a genuine two-way dialogue in which the teacher has to take on the child's perspective in order to engage with it and so to draw the child into participation in the long-term dialogue of culture.
It is not just about angels going up to Heaven. He described how the chronotope time-space of readers was brought into a dialogic relationship with the chronotope time-space of texts.
A dialogic relationship is a two way relationship in which there can be mutual understanding arising from an inter-illumination of perspectives. This vision of education as a journey into time is not about leaving behind our participation in the present moment - it is about expanding and deepening that participation. Bakhtin, for example, described how his appreciation of his own times, the time of the Russian revolution and its aftermath, was enhanced and enriched through his reading of texts from ancient Greece Bakhtin , introduction.
It is to weave together two different time-scales, the short-term time-scale of a face to face dialogue in a classroom with the much longer term time-scale of the dialogue of humanity - or what Oakeshott called 'the conversation of mankind'. As in the picture of Jacob's ladder, the angels of education travel both ways. By reading this volume prayerfully and attentively, we can all share more fruitfully in the celebration of Holy Mass.

Lori Archbishop of Baltimore. I found this book easy to read and the suggestions by the author on how to participate more fully in the Mass very helpful. The "in brief" and "next time you to Mass' at then of each chapter have been very practical and fruitful in deepening my own personal experience of the Mass. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding and participation in the Mass. Was this review helpful to you? Not Helpful.
