Publisher's Description

Folk is an analog foundation in a digital world. Phenomenology is a big word about a small, impossible task: trying to imagine the real. This book describes this task in relation to its foundation. Most of all, Folk Phenomenology is a defense of the integrity and sufficiency of art--thinking, feeling, living, dying. In short, being in love. "Rocha is a unique and passionate voice of polyphonic resistance in an age of uniform thinking and one-size-fits-all pseudo-solutions. A fearless border-crosser, Rocha thinks like an educational revolutionary and writes like a phenomenological poet. Let your intellect be provoked and your imagination expanded: Read this book." --Iain Thomson, University of New Mexico "Rocha's meditation ushers in a new phenomenology of learning devoted to the ties that bind subjects to their creative excess. Readers are invited to accompany Rocha's thought experiment: Let education be restless, personal, and relational in order to outlast school, but only for the sake of study." --Deborah P. Britzman, author of A Psychoanalyst in the Classroom: On the Human Condition of Education "Rocha presents us with a brilliant internal and external critique of the system of education in the United States. His examination is both provocative and insightful. Rocha's work will please many and be condemned by a few. His conclusions, however, cannot nor should not be ignored." --Bill E. LawsonDistinguished Professor of Philosophy, University of Memphis "All metaphysics is first and foremost an exercise in poesis: a worlding of worlds. But poesis, as Aristotle, and before him Homer, taught us is always an affair of the flesh touching the world of human affect. Poesis is thus the eros of astonishment and wonderment. Folk Phenomenology is a much welcome contribution in an age in which we have forgotten how to shudder at being exposed to the unsuspecting and wondrous." --Eduardo MendietaProfessor of Philosophy, Penn State University Samuel D. Rocha is Assistant Professor of Philosophy of Education at the University of British Columbia. He is author of A Primer for the Philosophy and Education (2014).
