About this book

Radical Pedagogy articulates a new theory of identity based on recent research in psychoanalysis, social psychology and cognitive science. It explains how developing identity is a prerequisite for developing intelligence, personal well being, and the amelioration of social problems, including violence, prejudice and substance abuse.

Reviews

'Bold, sophisticated, and provocative, Radical Pedagogy: Identity, Generativity, and Social Transformation weds a strong commitment to political and social justice to a theory and pedagogy of identity formation. Mark Bracher argues that teachers who understand the dynamic of identity will not only be able to facilitate deeper learning, they will also be able to position students to become more sensitive to questions of social justice. This is a must read for anyone committed to education, civic engagement, and social change.'- Lynn Worsham, Professor of English, Illinois State University, USA

'Radical Pedagogy is a chef d'oeuvre that provides sensible alternatives to the constraining normativities of an increasingly corporatized academy. Moreover, it grounds the questioning of such norms in a compelling theory of human development, arguing that an identity-centered approach is necessary in order to reconceptualize pedagogy in the American University.'- David A Brenner, reviewer for Pedagogy
