Review

"In conclusion, the book criticizes traditional eductaion and teaching, while it provides the readers with historical, philosophical, pedagogical and educational arguments for the recognition of the importance of wonder as part of the educational significance of emotion and imagination. It is ful of ideas for innovation with wonder-full education playing a key role."
