Confronting Consensus: Investigating the Philosophies That Have Informed Service-Learning's Communities.
Varlotta, Lori E.
Educational Theory, v47 n4 p453-76 Fall 1997
This discussion of service learning locates the notions of community and justice within the philosophies of liberalism and communitarianism. It examines constructivist models advanced by two authors, and argues that, despite debates surrounding communitarianism and liberalism, both philosophies share similar founding assumptions (consensual communities, notions of justice, and the rational, unified self).
