Contents:
Illustrations; Acknowledgments; Part One: The Evolution of an Educational Philosophy; Introduction; 1 The Educational Context in Quebec; 2 Popular Educational Theories of the 1960s and 1970s; 3 Early Philosophical Roots of Humanistic Education; 4 Theoreticians and Theories of Humanistic Education; 5 Critical Pedagogy: Contributions and Limitations; 6 Reconstructing Pedagogy; Part Two: Ideology and Practice at the New School: A Case Study; 7 The Dialectical Relationship between Ideology and Praxis; 8 Clientele, the Agenda of the State, and Pedagogy at the New School
Summary: Drawing on elements of progressive education, existential theory, feminist pedagogy, and values education, critical humanism combines the holistic-psychological concerns of humanistic education with the sociopolitical contextualization of critical pedagogy. Developed over the past seventeen years in one of North America's most experimental postsecondary programs, The New School of Dawson College, this theory and practice responds to both the personal and the political needs of students. Reconstructing Education is at once a review of this century's educational theories, an account of the work.
