    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 44.36

  • Hegemony and Education Under Neoliberalismby Peter Mayo

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    Based in a holistic exposition and appraisal of Gramsci?s writings that are of relevance to education in neoliberal times, this book--rather than simply applying Gramsci's theories to issues in education--argues that education constitutes the leitmotif of his entire oeuvre and lies at the heart of his conceptualization of the ancient Greek term hegemony... more...

  • Between Truth and Freedomby Kenneth Wain

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    This book engages in a broad reading of Rousseau?s writings on educational and political thought in order to explore and address the competing demands of the enculturation and individuation of the young in Western societies. Although Rousseau?s Emile has been frequently utilised in educational debate, much of his other work has been largely neglected,... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 90.00

    Dewey is known for education theories to promote democracy, but what is democracy for? His philosophy advanced democracy as education itself, reaching higher levels of social intelligence. Praising community or promoting rights doesn't get to the heart of Dewey's vision, which seeks everyone's good in a social life that is intelligently lived. more...
