This paper is based on an argument generated from a Gadamerian view of the importance of ethics as the basis for creative learning in the process of education. It postulates that learning is itself a self-understanding and unfolding process that involves the consideration of other points of view. Using jazz as a metaphor, Gadamer’s three moments of the hermeneutic process are discussed in detail to show the kind of conditions under which creative learning could be nurtured.
