Abstract

It is beautiful to be able to have the opportunity to doubt on the unquestionability of one’s mental habits; it is beautiful to be able to renew one’s energy to relate to the world in a way not bent by the banality of convenience and calculation. It is beauti-ful to realise that we feel the need for beauty as an inspirational motive for our thinking, feeling and acting, and as a resource to-wards a new education. The serious pandemic crisis has probably accelerated a necessary but demanding process that takes time to accomplish: that of becoming aware of a reality based on the principle of interconnection and interdependence – of the person with all his/her dimensions, with each other, with the Cosmos. I believe that this new perception of reality – since is the result of an experience – can mark a new step for the discourse and peda-gogical practice so as to devote itself to a new form of beauty in the search for a ἀλήθεια (aletheia – truth) to be configured as a de-sire for unveiling and understanding of the sense of reality, to be nourished in a revitalised interdisciplinarity, with a sense of won-der and amazement for every aspect of life. Care, responsibility and commitment, if animated by joy and love, can only aspire to excellence, giving the person the opportunity to fully realise his or her dignity and humanity.
