Globalisation and Its Consequences for Scholarship in Philosophy of Education
Haynes, Bruce
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v34 n1 p103-114 Feb 2002
A manifestation of globalisation as an economic imperative has occurred at the national level in Australia. This manifestation is in the form of political policies, administrative practices and funding distribution ostensibly aimed at creating a more competitive national economy. Philosophy of Education, as a practice and product of some employees in the higher education industry in Australia, is being influenced by this manifestation of globalisation. Reflection on ways in which established concepts are being reshaped to suit the agenda of globalising political policies may assist those engaged in philosophising about education to enhance their practice in ways they desire. This paper argues that such reflection should lead many academics in Australian universities to the conclusion that they should not undertake research and that research should not be part of the job specification for most academics employed in Australian universities.
