Transcending the Limitations of the Social Sciences: Insight, Understanding, and the Humanities in Educational Administration.
Ryan, James
Journal of Educational Thought/Revue de la Pensee Educative, v28 n3 p225-44 Dec 1994
Considers the role of the humanities in the study and practice of educational administration, offering significant insights into the human condition and the philosophical and moral aspects of education. Discusses the limitations of the subject-object dualism underpinning traditional social science. Explains how Slipperjack's "Honor the Sun," Orwell's "1984," and Eco's "Foucault's Pendulum" convey insights beyond social science. (52 citations). (MAB)
