This essay seeks to delve into issues deeply rooted in our imagination that make us difficult to resolve the paradox inherent in any educational enterprise: to tame in order to release. To do this it adventures on the pretension of controlling the uncontrollable, stands out the importance of the trivial and suggests undertaking non-traveled inroads recovering the role of mirror neurons and cordial reason. It asks who teaches whom in today's world and if an education without history or values is possible, and finally calls us to beware from authoritarianism in our educational practices.
