Drawing on parts of innovative schooling, existential conception, feminist pedagogy, and values schooling, serious Humanism combines the holistic-psychological matters of humanistic schooling with the sociopolitical contextualization of serious pedagogy. built during the last seventeen years in a single of North America's so much experimental postsecondary courses, the recent tuition of Dawson collage, this thought and perform responds to either the private and the political wishes of scholars.
