- ItemOpen AccessAppropriate Education: Future Education as if the Human Being Matters(1982-03-12) Fisher, R. MichaelThe very first substantial book attempted, on the ideal vision for education in the 20th century, by the author was started and not finished. It began in the latter part of 1982 as his career as a gr. 5-8 classroom school teacher took a drastic turn and he retired suddenly, wishing to do other things in the field of Education with more impact on educational philosophy and policy. At the age of 30 (in 1982) he found a copy of Up From Eden: A Transpersonal View of Human Evolution (published in 1981) by an unknown author to him at the time, Ken Wilber. This changed his life and thinking forever. A radical evolutionary vision for a philosophy of education began to emerge in his year after retiring, of which this technical paper covers only the Table of Contents and a few selected pages from this hand-typed and cut and pasted original edition. It will give readers a flavour for the scope of the author’s work and offers potential ‘seeds’ for others who may want to read the full ms. of 171 pp. (albeit, incomplete, ending with Chapter 3). Many of the ideas, theories, critiques in this book are still valid to the author to this day.
- ItemOpen AccessDrawing Out Fear and Terror: The Principles of Art Therapy in Personal Transformation(1990-01-10) Fisher, Robert M.This brief and introductory paper is not intended to deal with the complexities, details, and technicalities of the field of art therapy and personal transformation. More in-depth articles are available from other sources, including other articles I have written. Rather, I will give the reader an overall feel of what I have come to call the essence and principles of art therapy and its facilitation of personal transformation. The focus of my discussion will be on how the drawing out of fear and terror can have a healing effect.

- ItemOpen AccessEducation "Without Fear," or a Proper 'Fear' Education?(2001-09-04) Fisher, R. MichaelThe author shares decades of experience studying fear and fearlessness. He concludes that educators and teachers tend not to want to discuss "fear" with any depth or consistency. A change in this attitude is required, especially in a post-9/11 era. A critical 'fear' theory, with emphasis not on "fears" but a portrayal of the hidden crisis in fear-knowledge, is the goal of this paper. Yet, there is no conclusion to this exploratory journey into the beginnings of a critical 'fear' theory for education and for the world. There are some important guides we have met along the way in this article: Parker Palmer's admission of a "culture of fear" in contemporary education, Peter McLaren's admission of a "new species of fear" in cultural politics and education, and Deborah Britzman's admission of a "love and hate [fear]" emotional landscape and relationship that modulates all teaching and learning. Britzman is the only educator to lead the way to an in depth and queer theory of fear (feer) [other than the author's work on 'fear' theory]. The author argues that good as these theorists are to lead us in better understanding fear and its role in education, they are not good enough and too often still rely on the psychological basis of meaning for fear (McLaren, less so). Love is not enough either to challenge fear and its rule in education and society. We need a transdisciplinary approach as in fearanalysis, where the emphasis is on the path of fearlessness as the location and process of living a life eternally ambivalent between Love and Fear. We cannot simply get or be Love. There is not simply just Fear either nor are we only fear. There is no formula nor humanistic or theological guarantee for the 'good' without the 'bad,' so to speak. There is a dialectical relation and existential sensibility required that most people are unable or unwilling to bring to awareness in education. I believe a good quality 'fear' education would improve our capabilities to enter this path of fearlessness. It is risky business to each in a culture of fear and a politics that exposes the "glue" of the 'Fear' Matrix of pathological patriarchy, and adultism. This critical location and process, this living a life in such a precarious and ambivalent place, is the most dangerous of all pedagogies, and an impossibility with possibility, a dangerousness with desire for truth at all costs. Simply, the path of fearlessness demands a 'fear' theory which is determined to study fear, feer, 'fear' and any other creative expression that opposes pedagogies of love. This methodological shift in fearanalysis and critical 'fear' theory proposed (and incomplete yet) is toward the "negative" and a counterbalance to the hegemonic fetishism of the current "positive" in today's neo-liberal, neo- conservative climate in North American culture and education. -RMF
