How can we live meaningful lives in a world of apparently irreconcilable differences? In this book Anthony McKenzie invites educators and educational researchers to consider the implications for their practice of the proposition that human beings experience life as a hermeneutic journey and story. Throughout our lives we try to make sense of our experience and experience the fulfilment of a growth in understanding. Thus, for McKenzie, classroom learning is part of our much larger, lifelong meaning making challenge. Moreover, to be human is to express what is important to us, in our communications and in our lives. Each one of us has a story to live out and tell. In this study McKenzie reveals his own amazement as these ‘intuitively true’ ideas merge into an argument for a utopian-yet-realistic, liquid blueprint for a university curriculum of becoming for professional practice. McKenzie’s challenge to educational researchers is to reflect on the possibility of practising ‘lived experience as research, research as lived experience’. In essence, this work offers food for thought on the relevance of philosophical hermeneutics for educational research and practice at all levels.
