From the personal to the political. Reconciliation and Pedagogy D. No one- man phenomenon, by the mid-nineties, Peter Filene , p. During the v vi Foreword first decades of the twentieth century, Pamela Caughie points out, D. Not so this collection. Timothy Leonard and Peter Willis introduce the collection by acknowledging the urgency of such change. Through the processes of mytho- poesis, they suggest, such change may be stimulated.
The choice is not, then, spiritual renewal or social-material transformation: the argument here is that the former can occur through the latter. It is only a spiritually impoverished people who could mistake standardized examinations as measures of educational progress.
It is a people bereft of meaning who could cast about for external representations of it. This analysis is reminiscent of those subjective senses of colonialism and of post- colonial reparation legendary activist Frantz Fanon theorized see Oliver , p. That the human mind is a function of imagination is, Leonard and Willis tell us, the unifying thread of the mythopoetic project. Threatened by certain forms of hyper-rationality and intensified by placelessness see Bowers , p. Perhaps that is why Patricia Holland and Noreen Garman this volume emphasize the moral in the mythopo- etic, why Leonard and Willis underscore its political and progressive character, and why, in another volume, Mary Aswell Doll see , p.
The curricular forms such a moral mythopoetics can take are outlined in several of the essays in this volume. In their conclusion to the collection, Timothy Leonard and Peter Willis summarize these forms. Through the study of this text, we can read patterns afresh and in so doing reconstruct the meaning of curriculum. As Timothy Leonard and Peter Willis remind us, that project is urgent.

Acknowledgments The completion of this extensive project has been made possible through the assistance and support of family, friends, and colleagues enriched and energized by an early meeting in July at the University of Melbourne in Australia that many of our chapter writers attended. In the course of this study, we have met and been inspired by writers and thinkers whose wisdom and grace helped us find a way through impasses of educational theory, research method, presentation, writing style, and the like.
Many of them have of course provided chapters in this text while others have provided inspiration in other forms. We would like to thank and pay tribute especially to Maxine Greene, Professor Emeritus at Columbia Teachers College, New York for ongoing inspiration and challenge to action and aesthetic education.
