question about reference
|Posted By: Hillel Weintraub on March 2, 2013|
|Thanks for sharing these provocative points of view expressed in this essay. Some of what you have written about, I tried to bring into my teaching and learning over a period of 40 some years. I remember trying to get my students and colleagues to embrace the idea of using a mediography, rather than a bibliography. One of the most important additions to what this would hopefully do to our approach toward research was to get us to list our most personal forms of media as references when we did our research - memory, friends, dreams, personal experiences - all downplayed or avoided in most forms of educational writing. I got little support for this idea, and pursued it alone for a while, eventually moving my focus to other things.|
I have a question about the author's reference in mid-article: "Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it."
-- Hannah Arendt (1968, p. 105) There was no work listed at the end of the article by Arendt written in 1968; I can guess that it's "The Origins of Totalitarianism", apparently published in that year, but I'd like to use this quote in another context and need to know where it came from.
Thank you again.
