9781433103551: Education Beyond Education: Self and the Imaginary in Maxine Greene’s Philosophy (Teaching Contemporary Scholars)

Developing a theme in dialogue with Maxine Greene’s philosophy, this book introduces the reader to what animates Greene’s passionate work: the self and the imaginary. It illuminates how Greene empowers us all as learners of the possible, by identifying learning with the power of the imagination. Greene’s work promises hope beyond the impasse that often occurs when learning is reified by educational systems. Education Beyond Education illustrates how Greene redefines the notion of the imaginary – and with it, that of the imagination – as that which expands the possibilities of learning beyond the boundaries by which education is often narrowly defined and practiced. Tracing Greene’s key arguments, Education Beyond Education offers a strikingly original and empowering way to see and re-position education beyond its customary limits.

About the Author:

The Author: John Baldacchino is Associate Professor at Columbia University’s Teachers College. He was a member of the faculty at Gray’s School of Art in Scotland and Warwick University in England. He is the author of Post-Marxist Marxism: Questioning the Answer; Easels of Utopia: Art’s Fact Returned; Avant-Nostalgia: An Excuse to Pause and Makings of the Sea: On Mediterranean Aesthetics (forthcoming).

Review:

«As the ‘subject’ of this text, I wish to testify to its fairness and, yes, to its thoughtfulness. Because of John Baldacchino’s scholarly acquaintance with traditions that might infuse and clarify the complexities of education, I think he has shed new light on provinces of meaning I have chosen to inhabit throughout my academic life.»
(Maxine Greene)

«This is a great book which addresses a contemporary challenge from a multidisciplinary perspective. Written in a powerful, lucid and persuasive style, Altheide sparks thoughtful discourse on this crucial phenomenon. Altheide's book is to be highly recommended. The topic is current, timely and appropriate.»
(Jerry Komia Domatob, Media, Culture & Society, 32/2010)
