Recreating heart is a reinvention of the passion for the love of learning that seems to be missing in our standards-driven curriculum. Based on postmodern logics of relationship, systems, and meaning, (emerging from process philosophies, complex adaptive systems, learning organization theories, and language-games approaches), a dynamic curriculum is conveyed that will allow us to change our way of seeing. This change of aspect is necessary for transforming schooling and rejecting the underlying logic of domination inherent in our existing social structures and pervading current debates about schooling. Ultimately, recreating heart entails inventing new meaning structures and language games, creating a new way of seeing schooling, and transforming ideas about teaching, learning, society, and the curriculum.
