Post-modernity, Education and European Identities.
Coulby, David; Jones, Crispin
Comparative Education, v32 n2 p171-84 Jun 1996
Describes the "Enlightenment program" (often equated with modernity) and postmodernist criticisms of Enlightenment thought. Discusses the notions of Europe and Europeans as reflecting social inclusion/exclusion as much as geography. Examines the relevance of postmodernist theories to school and university knowledge systems, highlighting conflicts between diversity of culture and knowledge and centralized curricular systems. Contains 30 references. (Author/SV)
