New Social Foundations for Education
There has been growing scholarly attention to questions about the revival of religion and religiosity on global social, cultural and political fronts and the emergence of a ‘post-secular’ society. New Social Foundations for Education is dedicated to the drawing of the implications of the contemporary ‘post-secular’ social transformation for education. Though the question of the ‘post-secular’ stands at the focal point of a wide range of academic debates and discussions, within educational discourse it has not received close scholarly attention. This volume aims to correct this lack by presenting groundbreaking works of leading scholars from Europe, North America, and the Middle East. Contributions discuss such topics as the mystical tradition and its social and pedagogic implications; contemplative practices; spriritual education; and the relations between secular and religious education in different local contexts.
