The most updated articulation of the challenges of globalization to current education
Offers a critical perspective of the relations between globalization and education
The authors show how various changes in the era of globalization influence discussions on education today and how altered conditions transforms education and our thinking about it
The authors draw upon and sometimes move between different theoretical perspectives on education such as post-modern thinking, continental philosophy, analytical philosophy, critical theory, pragmatism, counter-education and post-structural thinking
Education seems to have lost its orientation in Western culture and is in disarray all over the glob in time of global transitions. Global transformations and globalizing capitalism are the general headlines for some of the most profound, deep and dramatic developments in our era that education must address. There is an urgent need to address the dramatic changes inflicted on/promised to our era philosophically, sociologically, culturally, ecologically, physically, aesthetically and politically. In this book we try to address the challenge of global transformations to education in the broadest sense of the concept of education, by treating this challenge in various perspectives through different disciplines and topics within which the challenge of globalization is conceived as the most profound dynamic of this historical moment, a development that is realized in many diverse and different levels, fields and spaces of human and natural existence. The various texts in this collection, written by some of the most famous and interesting scholars in the field of philosophy of education and the sociology of education, try to address the richness and diversity of the challenge of globalization. It tries to reconstruct historically, sociologically and philosophically the roots, the practices and the fruits of globalization as a threat and as a gateway for new possibilities for today's education. The collection is a meeting point for research that is not only analytical and critical but also offers new roads and possibilities for education in the 21st century in the era of globalization. As such, this collection is unique in this field and opens the door for further research and public discussion on the future role of education.
