Abstract

Viktor Frankl's intuitions about the "will to meaning" as the fundamental motivational drive in human existence contain some important pedagogical implications that, if furtherly developed, could provide a revolutionary paradigm in education. Particularly, Frankl's statement that the education should move from "transmitting knowledge" to "refining conscience" represent the key point for a renewed idea of school and curriculum, whose center is the person and his/her intentional relationship to the world, and his/her search for meaning becomes the heuristic principle of learning and educational experience.
