- John Dewey
- Critical Pedagogy
I am interested in rethinking our ideas of intelligence. My claim is that education that aims at increasing intelligent action often fails to do so, as it sets out from a flawed idea of intelligence as a property of individuals. I ground my research on the theories of the pragmatist philosopher John Dewey.
