A modern hunting tradition
Latremouille’s compelling narrative speaks to the need to incorporate multiple perspectives to gain a deeper understanding of our world. In the intergenerational conversation between young and old one notices the unspoken expectation that youth pay close attention to and learn from the elders. Yet, at the same time, there is a mutual pedagogical openness of the elders to welcoming the young and learning from them, paralleling the relationship that exists in the classroom that would have teachers and students coming together in taking seriously the responsibility of what political theorist Hannah Arendt calls “the task of renewing a common world.”
