    Education and Schmid's Art of living: philosophical, psychological and educational perspectives on living a good life.Christoph Teschers - 2018 - New York, NY: Routledge.
    Instead of simply following the current neoliberal mantra of proclaiming economic growth as the single most important factor for maintaining well-being, Education and Schmid's Art of Living revisits the idea of an education focused on personal development and the well-being of human beings. Drawing on philosophical ideas concerning the good life and recent research in positive psychology, Teschers argues in favour of shifting the focus in education and schooling towards a beautiful life and an art of living for today's students.

    Playing with Philosophy: Gestures, Performance, P4C and an Art of Living.Laura D’Olimpio & Christoph Teschers - 2017 - Educational Philosophy and Theory:1-10.

One of the most fundamental aspects of the embodied human life is human interaction that (...)

    Book Review: Compassion and education: Cultivating compassionate children, schools and communities. [REVIEW]Christoph Teschers - 2018 - Journal of Philosophy in Schools 5 (2):150-153.
    In his book Compassion and education, Andrew Peterson explores the concept of ‘compassion’ in three main areas: compassion as a virtue, compassion in relation to self and others, and compassion in relation to teaching and education. Peterson states that his ‘focus in this present book lies in particular on the cultivation of compassion within the education of young children in schools’. His work therefore contributes to the discussion of character education within the field of philosophy of education and makes an (...)

    The Art of Living and Positive Psychology in Dialogue.Christoph Teschers - 2015 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 47 (9):970-981.
    The idea of happiness boomed in the public as well as in the academic domain over the last decade and has not reached its peak yet. However, the understanding of happiness as being the utmost goal of human beings is hardly new. Philosophers have discussed this topic, under various terms, throughout history. One of the most recent philosophical concepts has been conducted by Wilhelm Schmid in his book Philosophie der Lebenskunst [Philosophy of the Art of Living], which is a theory (...)
