Between the Life of the Mind and the World of Action: Explorations into Consciousness, Pedagogy, Politics, and Scientific Philosophy in Adult Literacy Education (2005)

What follows is a bibliographic review of the author's online and print based articles and book chapters from 1993-2004 on various facets of the pedagogy, politics, and science of adult literacy education.

A strong autobiographical emphasis is highlighted especially on pp. 9-14, but more broadly throughout the text in the argument carried out explicitly and implicitly that the pedagogical and political are personal "all the way down," to quote the aphoristic phrase of pragmatic philosopher, Richard Rorty.

The common theme throughout all of the topics identified is an exploration of the complex relationship between the dynamics of the author's lived experience as a director of adult literacy programming in Hartford, CT, and his alter vocation as an intellectual seeking to make sense of the scholarship of adult literacy in light of the concrete irreducibility of his own daily practice.
