Description - Leaving Safe Harbors by Dennis L. Carlson

To rise to the challenges of postmodern culture, Carlson argues, progressivism will need to leave the safe harbors of what is familiar and comfortable. A new progressivism can only be forged of a fundamental re-thinking and re-mythologizing of democratic education. Drawing upon cultural studies perspectives, Carlson interrogates philosophy through popular culture for mythologies that might guide such a progressivism. The author uses Platonic, Hegelian, Nietzschean, and Heideggerian "mythologies" to elaborate a progressive model that provides powerful ways of "thinking" democratic education and public life.
