"On the Need for Dionysian Education in Schools Today"

Educational Theory, 64(2) 123-141.

Although much has been written about Nietzsche's views on education over the years, and much has also been written about Dionysus, god of wine and ecstasy, very little attention has been given to the meaning of, and need for, Dionysian education. This article is an attempt to begin that project. Drawing Nietzsche's articulation of the Dionysian, Apollonian, and anti-Dionysian into the orbit of broader scholarship on Dionysus, god of wine and ecstasy, the author invites readers to think about what a Dionysian education might look like in a modern-day school setting, as well as to consider what challenges exist for the implementation of such a vision of education.
