About this book
This book discusses how psychologized language has come to dominate education and schooling. It critically reviews 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 and suggests some 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.
