The Critical Pragmatist as Scholar-Practitioner
Bourgeois, Nichole
Scholar-Practitioner Quarterly, v4 n3 p233-244 Fall 2010
The intention of this article is to firmly build a case for the fit of a "new scholarship" known as scholar-practitioner as a leadership perspective grounded by the philosophical and theoretical tenets of critical pragmatism. Using post-formal thought as an approach to establish the fit of scholar-practitioner as a reform initiative and leadership preparation practice, etymology, pattern, process, and contextualization frame the discussion. Examination and deconstruction of modern and postmodern perspectives by way of post formal thinking establishes space and readiness for the critical pragmatist as scholar-practitioner. Moreover, a pattern of interconnected relationships placing critical pragmatism in the center establishes the need for scholar-practitioner leadership. Accenting the strengths and uncovering the weaknesses of modernistic and postmodernistic approaches supports the scholar-practitioner's integration of practical knowledge and scholarly knowledge into leadership praxis.
