dc.description.abstract This mini-thesis reflects on the manner in which the M.Ed. Degree course in action research at the University of the Western Cape influenced, initiated and sustained a transformation of the author's teaching practice. There are two closely interrelated revelations. The first is that one cannot investigate the process of education in South Africa without examining its philosophical underpinnings. The second is if one understands the importance of education, in all one's social interaction, it is found that in examining the process and teaching practice one is also looking at our society - at some characteristic relationships - in new ways. In the text the two central features of the thesis, action research and educational change are discussed in the context of Habermas's notion of knowledge constitutive interests. The claim is then made that socially critical action research can be conceptually linked to an emancipatory interest. The thesis also contains small-scale case studies showing action research at work, addressing a variety of concerns. In each case the intersubjective nature of action research is revealed and underscores the catalyst role it played. en
