Raaper, Rille; Olssen, Mark – Open Review of Educational Research, 2017
It is challenging to define who Michel Foucault was, whether he was a theorist, a philosopher, a historian, or a critic. In many of his books, and essays, Foucault denied being a philosopher or a theorist, nor did he want to be called a writer or a prophet.

Benade, Leon – Open Review of Educational Research, 2016
Vagle's "post-intentional phenomenological research approach" applies post-structural thinking to intentionality.

My larger…
