Education Beyond Education: Self and the Imaginary in Maxine Greene's Philosophyby John Baldacchino
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.
