"Positing education as the practice of freedom to balance against (or as an antidote to) the notion of education as credential-collecting,aTeaching Critical Thinking: Practical Wisdom seeks to help engaged educators navigate the contradictions and challenges of the academy so as to fulfill our mandate to be of compassionate service to students--as whole people, not simply as someone's future employees." -- Rain Taxi
