Teacher Saves World E38: Commonplace Episode: Friedrich Nietszche

Teacher Saves World E38: Commonplace Episode: Friedrich Nietszche

Podcasts

Laurie & Matt go back to a format they haven’t used in a while, the commonplace episode, where they pull a quote from a book and discuss its implications on the world of teaching and parenting teens. Matt came across this quote while reading How to Live by Sarah Bakewell, but the quote is from Friedrich Nietszche’s book Human All Too Human. Here it is:

“Among the small but endlessly abundant and therefore very effective things that science ought to heed more than the great, rare things, is goodwill. I mean those expressions of a friendly disposition in interactions, that smile of the eye, those handclasps, the ease which usually envelops nearly all human actions. Every teacher, every official brings this ingredient to what he considers his duty. It is the continual manifestation of our humanity, its rays of light, so to speak, in which everything grows…Good nature, friendliness, and courtesy of heart…have made much greater contributions to culture than those much more famous expressions of this drive, called pity, charity, and self-sacrifice.”

We started Teacher Saves World! to unite teachers and parents in saving the world, one teenager at a time. We're high school teachers and parents of two teens ourselves, so while we love the little ones, that turbulent time between childhood and adulthood is our wheelhouse. We also think high school is four of the most important years in a person's life, and each teen needs an army of caring adults that are dedicated to making sure they're ready to thrive in adulthood. We're taking an Avengers approach: We need everybody to pitch in! We're all superheroes when we care about helping teenagers grow up into confident and capable adults.
