Education for Jobless Society
Sidorkin, Alexander M.
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v36 n1 p7-20 Jan 2017
The advent of societies with low employment rates will present a challenge to education. Education must move away from the discourse of skills and towards the discourse of meaning and motivation. The paper considers three kinds of non-waged optional labor that may form the basis of the future economy: prosumption, volunteering, and self-design. All three require the ability of a worker to make meaning of his or her own life.
