Abstract

My interest in Gert Biesta’s ideas for the generation of living-educational-theories is because of his focus on unique individuals and their responsibility. This resonates with the idea I put forward (Whitehead, 1989) that individuals should take responsibility for generating and sharing their unique explanations of their educational influences in their own learning, in the learning of others and in the learning of the social formations in which they lived, worked and researched.
