The Monetary Valuation of the Human Mind: The Conditions for Knowledge Transfer and Education in a Neo-Liberal Society
Bernhard, Armin
Policy Futures in Education, v4 n3 p246-255 2006
The Marxist category "alienation"--the author maintains--contains already all the dimensions necessary to identify and interpret the educational problems of a neo-liberal society going through the process of economic globalisation, without reducing these problems to pure economism. It not only aids in understanding the fragmentation of identity itself, but even the fact that the maturation of the education of human nature forms an indispensable aspect of this fragmentation. Ways of developing an educational system that does not restrict itself to a treatment of human resources centred only on their market-oriented exploitation will be discussed. In contrast to the centrifugal forces of neo-liberal modernisation, the project of "human incarnation" must be created.
