Abstract

Wisdom of love, which does not avoid suffering: The teachers’ life. – Paper reflects the book Suffering and the Intelligence of Love in the Teaching Life: In Light and In Darkness. In the latter, seventeen authors from different helping and arts professions ask the question of the meaning of suffering in human life, and especially in the life of teachers. In a world, which is pluralistic in terms of values it seems to be even more important to reflect on the meaning of the key phenomena of humanity, such as that of suffering. Reflections on the quality of education which, potentially, wants to eliminate suffering, are important, indeed. Especially so by teachers, who are aware of their responsibility for future generations and the world, where suffering would not be hidden in centers of palliative care only.
