Abstract

This article explores notions of work and emergence in relation to our experience of being in the world. The article takes the notion of work as something more than the mere occupations of students, reorienting it in the literature of Zen Buddhism, Marxism, and chaos mathematics. Lived experience seeks to shed light on the growing dissociation between student and curricular content and provides a concrete, practical example that suggests the possibility that both learner and learned are transformed through difficult, meaningful, and local work.
