  • Decolonizing Philosophies of Educationby Ali A. Abdi

    SensePublishers 2012; US$ 49.99

    Philosophy of education basically deals with learning issues that attempt to explain or answer what we describe as the major questions of its domains, i.e., what education is needed, why such education, and how would societies undertake and achieve such learning possibilities. In different temporal and spatial intersections of people?s lives, the design... more...

  • Complexityby Tom P. Abeles

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2011; US$ 199.00

    We are at a seminal transition point for many institutions. The dinosaurs took millennia to disappear or transform. We should not expect the period of transformation for universities to take that long. And, as with some dinosaurs, we should expect that some will survive relatively unchanged. But for most, in a world made global by the electronic network,... more...

  • Intellectual Resistance and the Struggle for Palestineby Matthew Abraham

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 90.00

    By positioning the late Edward Said's political interventions as a public intellectual on behalf of Palestinian populations living under Israeli occupation as a form of intellectual resistance, Abraham moves to consider forms of physical resistance, seeking to better understand the motivations of those who choose to turn their bodies into weapons. more...

  • Learning to Failby Fran Abrams

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 41.95

    During a decade of relative prosperity from the mid-1990s onward, governments across the developed world failed to crack one major issue ? youth unemployment. Even when economic growth was strong, one young person in 10 in the United Kingdom was neither working nor learning. As the boom ended, the number of young people dropping out after leaving... more...

  • Academic Freedom: A Guide to the Literatureby Stephen Aby; James Kuhn

    ABC-CLIO 2000; US$ 64.00

    The freedom of academics to pursue knowledge and truth in their research, writing, and teaching is a fundamental principle of contemporary higher education in the United States. But this freedom has been hard won and regularly abridged, reinterpreted, and violated. Academic freedom has been central to many issues and controversies in higher education... more...

  • An Stelle des Anderenby Karl-Ernst Ackermann; Markus Dederich

    ATHENA-Verlag 2012; US$ 17.97

    In den vergangenen Jahrzehnten hat der die Heil- und Sonderpädagogik dominierende Diskurs über Selbstbestimmung und Teilhabe die Figur der Stellvertretung fragwürdig werden lassen und weitgehend aus den Fachdiskursen verdrängt. Heute gilt es als ethisch fragwürdiger Paternalismus, fürsorglich für jemand anderen sprechen, entscheiden oder handeln zu... more...

  • Persönlichkeitsentwicklungsstörungen bei Kindern und Jugendlichenby Albert Adam; Monique Breithaupt-Peters

    Kohlhammer Verlag 2010; US$ 24.59

    Für Kinder und Jugendliche mit komplexen psychosozialen Problembelastungen existieren nur wenig umfassende und erprobte Hilfekonzepte. Das mehrperspektivische Erklärungsmodell und eine Neudefinition des Begriffes "Persönlichkeitsentwicklungsstörung" sollen zum Verständnis der therapeutischen und pädagogischen Probleme beitragen. Die daraus... more...
