The Radical Philosophies and Education course cycle (offering 3 courses a year including the Annual Radical Philosophies and Education Annual Seminars) have featured and hosted eminent philosophies Ernesto Laclau (2007) and Jacques Ranciere (2008). This year’s seminar sought to understand the political, philosophical and aesthetic roots of Maxine Greene’s work—a scholar who has inspired generations of educators within and beyond Teachers College—through the examination of two of her major works: The Dialectic of Freedom and Releasing the Imagination. In these works, Greene reaffirms her central argument that learning is a radical catalyst for possibility as this emerges through our understanding of the self and the imaginary.
