About this book

The scholarship of New Directions in Curriculum as Phenomenological Text manifests through close readings and interpretations of curriculum theorists and Continental philosophers, presented in the form of 'speculative philosophical essays,' an important form of curriculum thinking-writing all but lost to the general contemporary field of research.

About the authors

James M. Magrini is Adjunct Professor of Western Philosophy and Ethics and Senior Academic Advisor, College of DuPage, USA.

Reviews

“Magrini claims that it may be feasible to initiate worlds in the present curriculum that stand further than the technical-empirical arrangement of social efficiency and its inclination for uniformity.  … Phenomenological language, and the distinctive reformulation of phenomena it implies, is thoroughly appropriate to convey the flexible, active, and changeable character of the development of our Being-in-praxis. … Publication of this volume is well timed to tap into the increasing interest in curriculum. Magrini’s approach is insightful and decidedly original.” (George Lazaroiu, Review of Contemporary Philosophy, Vol. 15, 2016)


"Overall, Magrini has certainly produced a fascinating text that in my view identifies and addresses issues that are fundamental to education and the curriculum. In particular, he skillfully weaves thinkers and ideas together in a way that both makes key underlying themes salient and deepens understanding of the thinkers concerned." - Michael Bonnett, Affiliated Lecturer, University of Cambridge, UK
