Beyond Discourse
Beyond Discourse (August 1999)
Education, the Self, and Dialogue
Alexander M. Sidorkin - Author

Drawing on the works of Martin Buber and Mikhail Bakhtin, the author explores the roles that dialogue, laughter, and spontaneity play in the education of the whole person.

Using Mikhail Bakhtin's concepts of dialogue and carnival, and in connection with the ideas of Martin Buber, Sidorkin explores the issues of difference and identity in a very postmodern view of the self. He addresses the questions of what it really means to be human, an...(Read More)
 
 
The Work of Friendship
The Work of Friendship (April 1999)
Rorty, His Critics, and the Project of Solidarity
Dianne Rothleder - Author

Develops a theory of friendship as a space that is neither public nor private.

"The Work of Friendship goes right to the heart of current debates regarding the need for philosophers to overcome not only what Rorty criticizes as epistemology, but also what Rorty fails to address, namely the problem of philosophical detachment from social theory and praxis. The engaging style brings the personal into the political and beautifully...(Read More)

A Dialectical Philosophy of Education
Moacir Gadotti - Author

Educating the Democratic Mind
Educating the Democratic Mind (November 1995)
Walter C. Parker - Editor

Addresses the question: How can schools help shape young minds to address the challenges of a democratic society?

It is an historical collection on the central que...(Read More)
 
 
Democracy and the Arts of Schooling
Democracy and the Arts of Schooling (October 1995)
Donald Arnstine - Author

"In the midst of all the noise generated these days over educational reform, one almost despairs of finding any who speak with some understanding of what education is about, namely the full development of human sensibilities and the full exercise of humancapacities. This is precisely what Arnstine does.

"I think that parts of this book are brilliant. Arnstine has explicated a set of distinctions (sometimes in ways that are quit...(Read More)
 
 
Discipleship or Pilgrimage?
Discipleship or Pilgrimage? (August 1995)
The Educator's Quest for Philosophy
Tony W. Johnson - Author

This interpretive history and critique of educational philosophy offers a reexamination and reconstruction of John Dewey's vision.
"Tony Johnson's book contains an explosive thesis: that philosophers of education make assumptions about knowing, learning, and the value of professionalism that are self-defeating and educationally destructive. In delineating these ironies, Johnson deepens the critique of the professionalized, departmentaliz...(Read More)
