The Role of Individual Negation in Enabling Social Capital, Moral Education, and Citizenship Education
Misco, Thomas
Canadian Social Studies, v43 n1 Spr 2010
Social capital, moral education, and citizenship education are three big ideas fundamental to the health of any democratic state. Yet exactly what these terms mean is a source of much contention and divergent thinking. Bringing some clarity to the three might help the cause of bolstering their prominence in educational discourse and reform. Therefore, in this essay I explore the underlying form of social capital, moral education, and citizenship education, which I characterize as "the negation of the individual."
