All Quiet on the Postmodern Front?
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v25 n4 p273-278 Jul 2006
This paper explores the question of the purpose of education within the context of Lyotard's framing of the postmodern condition. It points to some of the continuities and discontinuities in the framing of the current condition as postmodern and the recurrent problematics of truth-telling which is the mark of this condition. It suggests that educationally the postmodern condition is marked by lifelong learning, a constant apprenticeship rather than mastery, where in language stutters.
