In any cultural situation, pedagogy registers how individual learns from others in re-creating oneself within the consensual regime of hegemony. I ask what a pedagogy of culture entails for the social body today facing a cultural situation edging away from trust, tolerance, and credibility. Recent experiences in civil disobedience, social antagonism, and political deadlock suggest that dissent, as the antithesis of consent, is the condition of possibility for the self in struggle under the unique context concerned.
