Acts of Knowing aims to provide readers with a means of understanding the issues from the perspective of Critical Pedagogy- an educational philosophy which believes that knowing must be freed from the constraints of the financial and managerialist logics which dominate the contemporary university.

Critical Pedagogy is important for three key reasons: it conceptualises pedagogy as a process of engagement between the teacher and taught- secondly that that engagement is based on an underlying humanistic view about human worth and value- and thirdly that the knowing which can come out of this engagement needs to be understood essentially as exchange between people, rather than a financial exchange. Cowden and Singh argue that the conception of education as simply a means for securing economic returns for the individual and for the societys positioning in a global marketplace, represents a fundamentally impoverished conception of education, which impoverishes not just individuals, but society as a whole.
