World Society and the Human Being: The Possibilities and Limitations of Global: Learning in Dealing with Change
Lang-Wojtasik, Gregor
International Journal of Development Education and Global Learning, v6 n1 p53-74 2014
This article deals with understandings of change. It attempts to provide a framework for comprehending the hopes and assumptions concerning change that are implicit within global learning. The proposed framework of understanding draws on the theoretical perspectives of 'world society' (Luhmann) and "homo absconditus" (Plessner), and therefore places the proposed framework regarding an understanding of change within the context of an understanding of cultural functionality.
