Absurdities, Contradictions, and Paradoxes in Miguel de Unamuno's Amor y pedagogía

Educational Theory 66 (5):619-639 (2016)


This essay reconsiders Miguel de Unamuno's contribution to philosophy and education by focusing on his Amor y pedagogía — a piece of fiction considered by many to be the transition point in his work from the documentary realism of the nineteenth century to what Unamuno called “viviparous” narrative for the twentieth century. Deron Boyles examines four central characters in Love and Pedagogy — Avito Carrascal, Marina Carrascal, Fulgencio Entrambosmares, and Apolodoro Carrascal — as symbolic representations of enduring conflicts in school and society.
