Abstract

In Education and the Limits of Reason, Roberts and Saeverot (2018) point out that Vladimir Nabokov urged us to read with our spine. They explain this directive as a commitment to reading that engages both the heart and the brain so that neither objective nor subjective interpretations come to dominate our experience of texts. As they beautifully put it, ‘it’s about being touched between the shoulder blades’ (p. 89). In its meticulous entirety, this book demonstrates a reading-with-the-spine through which the reader is introduced to new ways of thinking about a body of philosophical literature and what it may teach us about education.
