What is education? Most of the time, we have little patience for this question because we take the answer to be obvious: we identify education with school learning. This book focuses on education outside of the school context as a basis for criticizing and improving school learning. Following the examples of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and John Dewey, Arcilla seeks to harmonize schooling with a more pervasive education we are all naturally undergoing. He develops a philosophical theory of education that stresses the experience of being led out-a theory latent in the Latin term, “educere”-by examining the road movies of Wim Wenders. This book contributes both to our understanding of another crucial kind of education our schooling could better serve, and to our appreciation of what unifies and distinguishes Wenders's achievements in cinema.

Professionally, Wenders left Europe for the United States only once. And it was a disaster. The shooting, or better the two shootings of “Hammett” between 1977 and 1982 as an “employed” director under Francis Ford Coppola’s control ended in a personal nightmare. It was a kind of filmmaking he never
