Postmodern Education by Stanley Aronowitz
Book DescriptionIncorporating post-modernism, cultural studies and literary theory, Aronowitz and Giroux argue that new theoretical formulations are necessary to analyze and transform educational institutions within the context of a post-modern world. In a world that is rapidly redefining relations between the centre and the margins and questioning the legitimacy of master narratives, this book discusses why it is no longer possible either to defend or analyze educational institutions according to conservative, liberal or radical theories dominated by a modernist faith in reason, science, universal truths and Euro-centric culture. The authors aim to provide an informed analysis of today's polemics surrounding the topic of education and society, and to present a conceptual framework for charting the future of directions educational theory and practice.
