Raising Critical Consciousness via Creative Writing in the EFL ClassroomRaising Critical Consciousness via Creative Writing in the EFL Classroom

This study discusses a method to promote raising critical consciousness in the English as a foreign language (EFL) classroom through creative writing activities by getting students write journals and/or personal letters from the perspective of individuals from outside groups that have been marginalized or vilified in the students' dominant culture.

These activities are intended to encourage students to adopt new perspectives on polarizing topics while also being an enjoyable and effective means to practice English writing. Furthermore, it is recommended that these activities also be used to serve as segues to deeper critical discourse on related issues.

Kant's Lectures on Ethics: A Critical Guide (Critical Guides)

This is the first book devoted to an examination of Kant's lectures on ethics, which provide a unique and revealing perspective on the development of his views. In fifteen newly commissioned essays, leading Kant scholars discuss four sets of student notes reflecting different periods of Kant's career: those taken by Herder (1762-4), Collins (mid-1770s), Mrongovius (1784-5) and Vigilantius (1793-4). The essays cover a diverse range of topics, from the relation between Kant's lectures and the Baumgarten textbooks, to obligation, virtue, love, the highest good, freedom, the categorical imperative, moral motivation and religion.
