The gap ruptures the centered action dictated by the foreseeable future, allowing something foreign to emerge in the subject. The non-indifference toward the suffering others keeps domestication from occurring.

In this approach, formal schooling interprets the nature of being a student by telling a story of developing autonomy, where autonomy means being self-directed and controlled. This was not only the message of Locke, Rousseau, and Kant, but recent educational theorists have also advocated this understanding of the student. For example, Meira Levinson argues that formal education is obligated “to help [students] develop their capacities for autonomy” (Levinson, 1999, p. 7). This is often interpreted as freeing the mind from its domination by emotions and the senses, by culture and society.
