We Should All Aesthetize Our Kids

This is an 11 minute video on education. It’s one of those with the doodles. I think it’s pretty sharp. I especially appreciate the part where (at about 5:45) he talks about how the Arts expose kids to Aesthetics, in contrast with Anesthetizing them with anti-distraction drugs. (Hence my made-up word “Aesthetize.”)

If nothing else he says is true, the fact is it is in stories that we are most fully engaged in, and by, all the parts that make us fully human. We are living a story (life is best explained as a story that we are living, not only telling –thanks, Dan Taylor). We need stories to make sense of life.
