Education in Turkey

This book represents a major study of the development and present state of education in Turkey. Turkey offers a unique context for studying education because of the tensions that exist between secularization and Islam, top-down social engineering and democratization, and economic growth and social justice. Education in Turkey brings together some of the leading educationalists in Turkey, as well as a number of scholars from other disciplines. The topics covered include the development and structure of primary, secondary, vocational and adult education, the role of education in shaping citizenship and national identity, human capital, economic growth and educational inequalities. This significant volume will be of particular interest to policy makers as well as researchers and students in education, economics, politics, and Turkish studies.

New African Intellectuals and New African Political Thought in the Twentieth Century

This book is purposely and deliberately entitled New African Intellectuals and New African Political Thought in the Twentieth Century. It encapsulates the recent debate about the political and cultural role played by the New African intellectuals in developing modern African political thought.

Instrumentalism in Education - Where is Bildung left?

This anthology aims to make visible those processes, conditions, and impacts on and in European educational institutions (k-HigherEd-VET) which are nowadays influenced by the phenomena of accountability, new public management, outcome-based learning, and educational policies which themselves obviously absorb or even perpetuate these phenomena. Are these phenomena evidence of an increasing instrumentalist view in education? The tendencies mentioned above do not just have an impact on learning processes and results but also on the way in which Bildung and Education are understood and realised in formal learning situations. It is striking that - independent of the original standpoints in a mult...

Hovering over the face of the deep

'Why does everyone need to die?', 'Does my hamster have a soul?' Theologians and philosophers have always wrestled with such questions. The articles gathered in this book - which represent recent educational approaches to philosophizing and theologizing with children - are very diverse in approach and emphasis. Nevertheless all underline the importance of supporting children and young people in their efforts to discuss questions of meaning. Quotations in the articles capture with vividness and immediacy their intense engagement with the puzzles of existence. Educators may learn better to support such processes, and by the same token be enriched by the interaction. Such processes resemble the phenomenon of the Black Sun where starlings get together from different directions in large flocks in order to survive the night. Both, as indicated in the title of this book are hovering over the face of the deep. This book offers a meeting place for theologians and philosophers, and although the conversation does a great deal to clarify their relationship, differences in opinion remain. Its contributors are from Denmark, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States.
