(p.65) Chapter Three Bruce Lee Beyond Pedagogy
Beyond Bruce Lee

Paul Bowman

Columbia University Press

Any consideration of Bruce Lee must take into account his importance as a muse, an inspiration, and an educator. This chapter returns to key examples and instances of Bruce Lee and pedagogy, in order to set out and then to move beyond the established ground, and into some vexed debates about philosophy, ideology, and cultural translation. It begins with a discussion of Bruce Lee's philosophy of Jeet Kune Do, before moving into reconsiderations of the relations between film and philosophy, culture, and ideology, as well as politics and ethics. It draws on Lee's oeuvre and intervention into relations with other Western popularizers of Zen, Taoism, and Buddhism, as well as with thinkers such as Jacques Rancière, Alain Badiou, and Slavoj Žižek.

Keywords:   Bruce Lee, educator, martial arts films, pedagogy, Jeet Kune Do, Zen, Taoism, Buddhism, Jacques Rancière, Alain Badiou
