Transformative Learning: Fostering Educational Vision in the 21st Century (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


In this hugely influential book, originally published in 1999 but just as - if not more - relevant today. Transformative Learning argues persuasively that every educational system must instead first equip people with an understanding of where their society is headed. Educationalists must, as a result, be asking profound questions about the content of what is taught. This needs to start with a deep understanding of the historic transition which all our societies are about to be compelled by circumstances to make.

The fundamental task of educationalists is to introduce into curricula at all levels a grasp of what is wrong with the modern era, why it will be replaced, and a vision of possible new directions.

It goes almost without saying that the intellectual tools, ethical values, and practical skills required for a more humane, environmentally conscious and socially just epoch will be very different from many of those taught today.
