About this Book

This book explores the resurgence of interest in phenomenology as a philosophy and research movement among scholars in education, the humanities and social sciences.

  • Brings together a series of essays by an international team of philosophers and educationalists
  • Juxtaposes diverse approaches to phenomenological inquiry and addresses questions of significance for education today
  • Demonstrates why phenomenology is a contemporary movement that is both dynamic and varied
  • Highlights ways in which phenomenology can inform a broad range of aspects of educational theorising and practice, including learning through the body, writing online, being an authentic teacher, ambiguities in becoming professionals, and school transition
