Name: Carl Edwin Lindgren
I was born and raised in Virginia and moved to Mississippi in 1965.
I would like to take this opportunity to let individuals reading this page know that I am very interested in helping all readers on the topics of medieval history, education theory, Metagogiek, genealogy, heraldry, nobility and religious thought.
My areas of scholarship are: comparative scientific pedagogics, Metagogiek (Education of Becoming), generational family matrix development and spatial time ripple reactions and their relation to social behavior.

Current Research Interest*
• During the early 1980s quite a number of questions arose amongst certain members of the then Dept of History of Education at UNISA regarding the status, field of study and, in particular, the methodologies employed in History of Education. A few years earlier something similar happened at the University of Pretoria (UP) and the University of Port Elizabeth (UPE). In an attempt to "revitalize" the History of Education, UP advocated a "new" type of History of Education called Wordingsgeskiedenis (this Afrikaans word can possibly be translated as the "History of Becoming") whereas UPE advocated Temporaliteitspedagogiek (possibly to be translated as "Pedagogics of Temporality"). Each regarded their methodology as something different from existing research methodologies and their focus as unique. At the University of South Africa a number of colleagues then started propagating yet another "new" type of History of Education, referred to as Metagogiek. According to De Jager, DK, Coetzee, JH & Bisschoff, TC. 1983. Metagogiek: Metodologie En Toepassing. HAUM; Pretoria]: "The name, Metagogiek, indicates the intention that an all-inclusive view is striven for. Meta pertains to change always taking place and emphasis will be placed on this aspect in particular. The second half of the name, agogics, emphasizes the guidance that one human being offers to another during every phase of life." Therefore one could say the Metagogiek refers to the "pedagogics of change" keeping in mind that, according to advocates of Metagogiek pedagogics focuses on children only - agogics, according to them, includes all human beings, from the cradle to the elderly. Lindgren attempts to utilize certain concepts in Metagogiek to bring a better awareness of human becoming as it relates to helping the human condition. Emphasis is on human rights and ways in which issues relating to chronic pain, poverty and social injustices can be addressed through the science of education.
