About the Book

Reading as a transactional process, reader-response, the ways texts teach, miscue analysis, kid watching, social responsibility and imagination, our existential existence, I am not yet, not yet, are all ideas that are part of who we are, but would not be without Yetta Goodman, Maxine Greene, Louise Rosenblatt, and Margaret Meek Spencer.

Excerpted Quotes from Great Women Scholars – Yetta Goodman, Maxine Greene, Louise Rosenblatt, and Margaret Meek Spencer.

Maxine Greene

“The point of being incomplete,” Maxine continued, “feeling like I am no nearer an answer, is that I do philosophy. And philosophy doesn’t have to do with answers, it has to do with questions, and most of the questions are unanswerable empirically, logically. It means more questions, like: ‘What is beauty?’ ‘What is justice?’ ‘What is freedom?’ There are no empirical answers to any of those.”

Louise Rosenblatt

“Mutual aid, my father’s whole point was that the struggle for survival was not the only thing that happened in evolution,” Louise said. “There was mutual aid. There was cooperation. There was care and fidelity among animals as well as among humans.”

Margaret Meek Spencer

“One strand of the Faulkner experience has remained with me,” she said. “Most of my research included huge inputs by thinkers like Piaget, Vygotsky, Bruner, and the French philosophers, who are the other non-English strand of my thinking. But although I had to study linguistics, from Saussure on, I never gave up teaching poetry and literature generally.”

Yetta Goodman

“That’s what it took,” Yetta said. “I tell students to stop and look at the things that they think are the most negative about themselves and to ask how can they can use those things in positives ways, as strengths. The negative things that we take for granted are also our strengths. That’s what I began to learn, little by little.”
