William F. Pinar, William Pinar
Psychology Press, 1998 - Education - 268 pages
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 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. The book opens and concludes with Maxine Greene's own autobiographical statements.f teaching. The book opens and concludes with Maxine Greene's own autobiographical statements.
