Reading as the Shaping Force of Life: Debora Vogel’s Contributions to Education

The writer and edu­ca­tor Deb­o­ra Vogel con­tend­ed with ques­tions raised by avant-garde art in the 1920s and 1930s and, through­out her writ­ings, repeat­ed the fol­low­ing ques­tion as a leit­mo­tiv: What does life” mean and which forms does it assume?
