Based on postmodern logics of relationship, systems, and meaning, (emerging from process philosophies, complex adaptive systems, learning organization theories, and language-games approaches), a dynamic curriculum is conveyed that will allow us to change our way of seeing. This -change of aspect- is necessary for transforming schooling and rejecting the underlying logic of domination inherent in our existing social structures and pervading current debates about schooling. Ultimately, -recreating heart- entails inventing new meaning structures and language games, creating a new way of seeing schooling, and transforming ideas about teaching, learning, society, and the curriculum.
