Critical Pedagogical Praxis

Risk and the Hopeful Struggle
  • William M. Reynolds
Chapter
Part of the Leaders in Educational Studies book series (LES)

Abstract

The idea that hope alone will transform the world, and action undertaken on that kind of naïveté, is an excellent route to hopelessness, pessimism, and fatalism. But the attempt to do without hope, in the struggle to improve the world, as if that struggle could be reduced to calculated acts alone, or a purely scientific approach, is a frivolous illusion.
