Description


This book collects the most important essays of the late James B. Macdonald, educational theorist and cultural critic. Given the rise of importance of educational thinkers within the current move toward interdisciplinary theory dialogue. Macdonald's work stands as an important link between earlier technical discussions associated with curriculum development and contemporary moves toward viewing the central role of educational institutions and discourses in social and cultural life. Macdonald's essays - spanning from the early '60s to the early '80s - argue for the necessity of curriculum theorizing in the attempt to create a more humane schooling environment, a process that he consistently linked to larger cultural and social transformations.
