Forms of Education analyses the basic tenets of the humanist legacy in terms of its educational ethos, examining its contradictions and its limits, as well as the extent of its capture of educational thought. It develops a broader conception of educational experience, which challenges and exceeds those limits.

This book deflates the compulsion to educate. It delegitimises the imposition of any particular practice in education. It defines education, openly and non-restrictively, as the (de)formation of non-stable subjects, arguing that education does not require specific formations, nor the formation of specific forms, only that form does not cease being formed in the experience of the non-stable subject. Exploding and pluralising what amounts to ‘education’, this book rethinks what might still be called educational experience against and outside the ethos of the humanist legacy that confines its meaning.

This book will be of interest to scholars and postgraduate students in the fields of philosophy of education, educational theory, history of education and sociology of education.
