He was also one of the most contradictory and controversial thinkers and exciting writers of his time; the writer of the first modern... more...

  • The persistence of presentism and the struggle to secure lasting educational improvementby Andrew Hargreaves

    Institute of Education Press 2012; US$ 9.95

    Presentism, the sacrifice of future improvements to the pressing needs of the present, has increased. Professional culture reinforces rather than challenges the growing culture of presentism within the wider society, and both, Hargreaves argues, are in need of profound transformation. more...
