Example text

The move to eliminate absence is actually eliminating the very natural necessity that sustains us in the world. Hermeneutical research of small-group learning via the four components of action This section begins with a hermeneutical investigation of small-group schemes in education in order to put to work the initial moments 1M: learning as product and 2E: learning as process of a dialectical conceptualization of learning. In a general sense, we may think of 12 Learning as product and learning as process small-group schemes as arrangements by which to organize and allocate resources to small groups for the purpose of, but not limited to, instruction.

This idea of absenting as change without product refers to the sense in which learning is a yearning for change because as long as we live there is always something new to be learned. CRAT conceptualizes this level, in this chapter, as an apprehension of incompleteness via the Bhaskarian notion of the absence. (3L) Learning as process-in-product: theoretically, 3L is the level of totality in which the process contains gaps, fissures and so on, as part of the product. CRAT exemplifies this level with the AT notion of an expansive transformation, which is equivalent to the Hegelian Aufhebung, a totality that is closed in thought and thus needs supplementation with (1) the next level in practice, which is 4D, and (2) the notions of open system as I shall show in the subsequent chapters.
