Online Submission, Lamar University Electronic Journal of Student Research Spr 2007
One could argue that postmodernism is the wave of the future. To fully gain a comprehensive understanding of the function of postmodernisn one must first obtain a comprehensive understanding of the structured component of postmodernism. The Epistemological aspect of the postmodernisn leadership paradigm model provides the foundation we as educators call knowledge. The abstract conceptualization of epistemology is used in relation to understanding critical thinking as it relates to educational leadership. In terms of axiology, applying the value of knowledge as it relates to educational leadership can be afforded to support the metaphysical component. Metaphysically, the knowledge must be applicable in terms of being tangible through concrete experiences, philosophical surveillance as well as critical thinking--abstract conceptualization as educational leaders relate it to their educational philosophy. Each component represents as separate metaphysical entity. In which, axiology order is necessary to build the foundation. In retrospect, the epistemological order is given to create an intricate pattern for the postmodernism leadership model. (Contains 1 figure.)
