Psychologized Language in Education: Denaturalizing a Regime of Truth

Zvi Bekerman, Michalinos Zembylas, "Psychologized Language in Education: Denaturalizing a Regime of Truth"
English | ISBN: 113754936X | 2017 | 226 pages | PDF | 2 MB

This book explores how psychologized language has come to dominate education and schooling. Taking a critical lens to some major constructs in education―e.g. the mind, the self, identity, emotion, emotional intelligence, motivation, culture, language and meaning―and their grounding in psychologized discourses, the authors suggest possible ways to overcome these psychologized discourses and remedy their consequences. The book invites readers to move away from static, reified conceptualizations to a more active, social understanding of what education is all about.
