Biting the Pragmatist Bullet: Why Service-Learning Can Do without Epistemology.
Tucker, Robert E.
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v6 p5-14 Fall 1999
Suggests that pragmatism is most usefully seen as a perspective that encourages service learning practitioners to avoid epistemology altogether. Discusses three related commitments of service learning; (1) respect for disciplinary diversity; (2) encouragement of innovative experimentalism; and (3) enthusiasm for progressive thought and action.
