The Promise of Ecological and Cooperative Education

John Dewey and the Paradox of Liberal Reform (July 1990)
William Andrew Paringer - Author

Challenging the four pillars of Dewey's pragmatism --science, nature, democracy, experience --Paringer argues for a critical or radical education praxis that more sensitively comes to grips with the difficulties of the nuclearized...(Read More)
