This is book number 67 in the Counterpoints series.


This book aims to enlarge understandings of educational action research. Drawing from complexity theory, deep ecology, Eastern philosophy, hermeneutics, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, postmodernism, and literary theory, the essays in this collection show how participation in educational action research practices requires more of the researcher than the application of research methods. Each essay demonstrates how action research is a lived practice that asks the researcher to not only investigate the subject at hand but, as well, to provide some account of the way in which the investigation both shapes and is shaped by the investigator.
