An Inquiry into the Phenomenology Pedagogy of Max Van Manen
The pedagogical thoughts of Max Van Manen came from his reflection upon the world of life. He argued that experience was the essence of life world. Parents’educational awareness came from their expectations of their children. Therefore he suggested that teachers should understand their roles in the perspective of the in loco parentis relation. He believed that since children had lots of possibilities, teachers and parents should reflect upon particular situation when educating children. He objected the tendency of abstraction and theorization in educational research and believed that research should focus on practice. He advocated that pedagogical research should improve thinking and tact and present texts of phenomenology in the form of phenomenological writing.
