The Learning Society: Postmodern Politics.
Wain, Kenneth
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v19 n1 p36-53 Jan-Feb 2000
The discourse of the Learning Society has a vocationalist/managerialist thrust, is oriented toward the global economy, and is market driven. A counter-discourse that rejects emphasis on "performativity" could clash with postmodernist objections to master narratives. (SK)
