Education

Doing good, not out of self-sacrifice. Conversation with Massimo Recalcati

Massimo Recalcati, in his latest book, "Contro il sacrificio" (against sacrifice), clearly explains the function of the psychoanalyst and the educator towards the people affected by distortions of personality, unable to live their life peacefully and to listen to the law of their desire and crushed by the inhibitions of their super-ego.


The lesson of Bulgaria for today's world

"When you have the courage to speak truth to power about the possible consequences of nationalism, you can convince also the people who think differently. Today’s problem is that everything is accepted without a cultural resistance." By Gabriele Nissim


The everyday Righteous who might save the world

“The Possible Good” can be meant as "I can't do more", "I can't do any better". However, it is the instance of the moment that defines possibility. To express this with more depth, it is "the call”. The Righteous responds to an urgency. By Salvatore Natoli


The Righteous and the inviolability of life

The Righteous, by their deeds, show that there is never a necessary reason to sacrifice a life, even for a lofty ideal, because otherwise, we would enter an absolute contradiction: the ideal, in fact, is to make life inviolable. By Massimo Recalcati


The Righteous show us that goodness is possible

The key issue I sought to address is that of giving some references to the youths, but the mechanism was not focused on offering them any models. We don’t have to hallow the Righteous. If we pass on the idea that the Righteous are equal to us, with faults and contradictions, we show that goodness is possible. By Gabriele Nissim 


Moral elevation, Gariwo, and the importance of retelling stories of Rightousness

Humans are storytellers. We not only tell stories about the past to influence the future behaviour of others, we often retell the stories we hear. Some of the stories told and retold for generations by humans everywhere are descriptions of sacrifice for the sake of others. These stories have a special importance because they can have a very specific influence on those who hear them.


Education

the Wefor-based teaching for keeping memory

Spreading the knowledge of the Righteous among young people is one of the main objectives of Gariwo. The most effective vehicle is keeping a tight relationship with schools, through teachers ready to be engaged with current issues in the formation of civil and moral conscience of the younger generation ...  Individual and collective memory is a fundamental element in the education of young people and a powerful tool in the hands of educators: that is why we talk about the educational memory as a tool of the construction of an identity.
Gariwo has been developing with educators, teachers, academics, intellectuals and associations, both in Italy and abroad, exchanging experiences, information and data processing, to be available to all operators of the training, in the form of educational projects, reflections, relationships, theoretical references, bibliography and news from the world of education ...
To indicate the Righteous as landmarks of European consciousness, with the project WEFOR we created the virtual teaching of Gardens in Europe, where the trees are planted for the Righteous from different countries; the entire section is devoted  to schools, with the title YouFor, in which the materials for teachers, the contributions of classes, processed and student research, as well as an extensive collection of media analysis are collected.
