This paper argues that higher education in Australia is suffering from a lack of enchantment. Dominated by the discourses of economic rationalism and by an objectivist epistemology that distances teachers from both their students and their subjects, education is losing its energy and passion. Through rediscovering enchantment, however, teachers may recover the sacred nature of their vocation.
