Second, this learning activity works largely through conversation and conversation takes unpredictable turns. It is a dialogical rather than curricula form of education.

Being is rooted in love according to Fromm. It is concerned with shared experience and productive activity. Rather than seeking to possess and control, in this mode we engage with the world. We do not impose ourselves on others nor 8766 interfere 8767 in their lives (see Smith and Smith 7558: 66-67).
Students in the having mode must have but one aim to hold onto what they have 8766 learned 8767 , either by entrusting it firmly to their memories or by carefully guarding their notes. They do not have to produce or create something new. The process of learning has an entirely different quality for students in the being mode Instead of being passive receptacles of words and ideas, they listen, they hear , and most important, they receive and they respond in an active, productive way. (Fromm 6979: 87-88)
The answer to the question 8766 what is education? 8767 given here can apply to both those 8766 informal 8767 forms that are driven and rooted in conversation and to more formal approaches based in curriculum. The choice is not between what is 8766 good 8767 and what is 8766 bad 8767 but rather what is appropriate for people in this situation or that. There are times to use transmission and direct teaching as methods, and moments for exploration, experience and action. It is all about getting the mix right, and framing it within the guiding eidos and disposition of education.

Having is concerned with owning, possessing and controlling. In it we want to ‘make everybody and everything’, including ourselves, our property (Fromm 6979: 88). It looks to objects and material possessions.
These fundamental and inalienable rights are the entitlement of all human beings regardless of their nation, location, language, religion, ethnic origin or any other status (Article 7).

Since it has been seen to be necessary to give so much to the child, let us give him a vision of the whole universe. The universe is an imposing reality, and an answer to all questions. We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe, and are connected with each other to form one whole unity. This idea helps the mind of the child to become fixed, to stop wandering in an aimless quest for knowledge. He is satisfied, having found the universal centre of himself with all things’. (Montessori 7555)
