These children all had the original experience of learning (their mother tongue, as well as most "life lessons") by themselves. They all spontaneously acted upon that premise of an equality of intelligence (according to which all of us are able to figure out, by trial and error, what we need to know in order to master the codes that surround and structure us). In light of this original experience, the School (the educational system, the Old Master, la Vieille, with its pedagogical practices and its armies of wellmeaning Teachers, Instructors, Masters and Professors) appears as a tremendous machine devoted to neutralizing that spontaneous power to learn by oneself.
In Jacotot's practice, the teacher's role was limited to influencing the will, and did not include any actual transfer of knowledge. His pedagogical act was not an explication (of the rules of French grammar), but a series of commands: "Read this book! " If the Good News brought to mankind by the apostle Jacotot was that every child of man is intelligent enough to learn anything without the help of an explicator, the reformed Gospel of Universal Teaching was not meant to put all teachers out of a job: it tended only to recast them as Commanders instead of Explainers.
I hear people say that Ranciere is not an easy philosopher to understand, and that his theory of emancipation is not an easy argument to grasp; therefore I am about to explain the main notions, assumptions and consequences of this book, as well as its charms and its stakes. But since the main lesson of the book is that explanation runs contrary to emancipation, I - along with my fellow contributors to a volume dedicated to "explaining" Ranciere's key concepts - seem bound to betray the author and his ideas by the very nature of our explanatory gesture.
