adical Pedagogy argues that longstanding pedagogical aims and practices are ineffective in promoting learning and social change and proposes a new strategy for achieving these ends. Drawing on recent research in psychoanalysis, social psychology, and cognitive science, Bracher argues that the most effective way to solve social problems such as violence, prejudice, and substance abuse on a mass scale, as well as impediments to learning and personal well being, is through a pedagogy that addresses their common root cause: identity vulnerability.To this end, Bracher formulates psychoanalytically based practices to develop more resilient, secure, and prosocial identities for both teachers and students.

Praise for Radical Pedagogy
“Bold, sophisticated, and provocative, Radical Pedagogy: Identity, Generativity, and Social Transformation weds a strong commitment to political and social justice to a theory and pedagogy of identity formation. Mark Bracher argues that teachers who understand the dynamic of identity will not only be able to facilitate deeper learning, they will also be able to position students to become more sensitive to questions of social justice. This is a must read for anyone committed to education, civic engagement, and social change.”--Lynn Worsham, Professor of English, Illinois State University
