Come Back Martin, A Lot of Stuff Is Forgiven: Philosophy of Technology and Philosophy of Education.
Kaminsky, James S.
It is the thesis of this work that the intellectual and social movements of the sixties beyond conservatism, classical liberalism, new liberalism, and various versions of Left philosophy have generated a space for the construction of a neoteric philosophy. The neoteric influence of today's reality points out that philosophy must move beyond postmodernism and conservatism. This essay argues for a neoteric philosophy of education. Neotericism asserts that politics is not reducible to epistemology, economics, class, modes of production, or life-worlds. It is the rate change--a dynamic, not a structure--that is the central factor of modernity. It reasserts that the new liberal claim that community is the core topic of all politics is correct. A neoteric philosophy of education revolves around the reestablishment of democracy, community, civic humanism, and freedom in discussions of political philosophy in particular in a tone that is against fragmentation.
