The Joy of Inquiry

Alfonso Montuori
2008 Journal of Transformative Education  
In this article, the author reflects on his own educational experiences as a starting point for an exploration of the way that education can be a joyful process if framed as an opportunity for creative inquiry. The author outlines some dimensions of an attitude of creative inquiry, focusing on Wonder, Passion, Hope, and Conviviality. The author then explores a number of different metaphors for inquiry and the way they can frame our attitude and evoke different moods.
