The Beautiful Risk of Education (Interventions: Education, Philosophy, and Culture)

5.0 out of 5 stars Biesta does it again!, 13 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you care about education Biesta's work is a must. Always thought provoking - and no easy answers - Biesta's work continues to operate as a prompt to the conscience of educators everywhere. His ideas in this book will be familiar to readers of Beyond Learning and 'Good Education' as he continues to develop ideas for a (post?) human future. The links between democracy, education and emancipation should be of interest to 'participation' workers everywhere, as well as teachers for whom the books are written. I defy anybody to ever use the terms learning and learner casually after reading Biesta's work. Once again the excellence we have come to expect from his work is threaded from the first to last page. A text book worthy of close reading from front to back by student teachers, teachers, and educators everywhere - a manifesto for risk, judgement, and courage in EDUCATION ..........


Power, Crisis, and Education for Liberation: Rethinking Critical Pedagogy
Power, Crisis, and Education for Liberation: Rethinking Critical Pedagogy
by Noah De Lissovoy
Edition: Paperback
Price: £28.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Original and thought provoking, 13 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is rare that a whole text book is worth reading - but this is one of them (the other is the Beautiful Risk of Education reviewed elsewhere). De Lissovoy's work constantly pushes the educator to consider how they are implicated in reproducing the world - if you love Friere you will love this. Both broad and deep - De Lissovoy goes the distance with the ultimate aim of creating a better educated and more inclusive world - what more can I say? If you teach you need to read this ..........

Bell Hooks is probably one of the most interesting and accessible writers on education as a practice of freedom - every teacher and every student should read this book at least once a year!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job and the price is right, 27 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want something to work in the home buy Panasonic. For a good mid-range price Panasonic is difficult to beat and this microwave is straightforward to use; does the job; looks the business. Have bought cheaper microwaves before (too many times) so here is hoping this time is the last for a while!

If you are a student doing a degree which is remotely relevant to working with ANY living person then YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK. As a lecturer I have read virtually everything Thompson has ever written but somehow I managed to miss this one - it is superb. Cant rate it highly enough
