Heidegger’s Contribution to the Understanding of Work-Based Studies

Authors: Gibbs, Paul

  • First volume to show through the works of Heidegger that work based studies although potentially a form of machination need not be so
  • Argues that constraining belief and knowledge to the known or knowable within an ideology of consumerism is restricting one of the key functions that a university as a centre for work based learning can contribute to society
  • Timely as arguments for access and the provision of work related studies dominate discussion of higher education

About this book

This book seeks to develop the philosophy of Heidegger notion and reflects the growing importance of work based studies which is becoming of special interest to higher education institutions and commercial organisations. The author acknowledges the dominance of the economic discourse of higher education, but in this book he tries to argue that Heidegger offers a phenomenological approach to understanding the diversity to higher education that work based learning can bring. The book offers a structured argument for a phenomenological understanding of both the educational institution and the commercial environment to be considered as workplaces.
