The first edition of this work became a standard reference work in the general context of humanistic approaches to foreign language teaching and learning. This new edition gives a brief overview of further developments in relevant fields and discusses the importance of the concept of teaching as an art in light the increasing standardization and digitalization of education.
Reviews of the 1st Edition:
“I believe that the book will become a standard reference point for all those who, against the current tide of ‘scientific’, objectives-based, test-oriented, control-obsessed, sterile approaches to language teaching, continue to believe that language teaching is indeed an art, and a joyful art at that.”
Prof. Dr. Alan Maley in English Language Teaching Journal
“Peter Lutzker is a major educational thinker and has spent half of an earthly span living towards this major book. (…) I have placed Peter’s book on my shelves next to those of Rogers, Curran, Dufeu and Stevick.”
