Product Overview

Maxine Greene is arguably the most important philosopher of education in the US today, but until now she has not been the subject of sustained scholarly analysis and investigation. This study of Green's contribution is organized from several points of view: studies of her four books; studies of the intellectual and aesthetic influences upon her theory; and her influence on the various specialization within the broad field of education-the teaching of English, arts education, philosophy of education, curriculum studies, religious education, cognitive theory, and theory of teaching.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Maxine Greene is the most important philosopher of education in the United States today. The author of Teacher as Stranger (1973), Landscapes of Learning (1978), Dialectic of Freedom (1988), and Releasing in the Imagination (1995), Greene has influenced tens of thousands of teachers in North America as well as her colleagues in philosophy of education, teacher education, and curriculum studies. While widely cited, Greene has not - until now - been the subject of sustained scholarly analysis and investigation. William F. Pinar has organized a systematic study of Greene's contribution from several points of view: studies of the four books; studies of the intellectual and aesthetic influences upon her theory; and her influence on the various specializations within the broad field of education: the teaching of English, arts education, philosophy of education, curriculum studies, religious education, cognitive theory, and theory of teaching. Thomas Barone, James Giarielli, Wendy Kohli, Nancy Lesko, Patrick Slattery, and Susan Stinson are among the distinguished contributors. A special feature of the book is Maxine Greene's autobiographical statements which open and conclude the collection. Pinar's introduction places Greene in the context of 'public intellectual' in the New York tradition, likening her to distinguished cultural critic Susan Sontag. This important collection is essential reading not only for all who appreciate the work of Maxine Greene, but also for those who wish to be introduced to her influential contribution.
