Abstract:   (6168 Views)
This article studies the foundations of postmodernism in education. The Postmodernism which has affected a wide realm of social sciences, philosophy as well as philosophy of education, is a reaction against the rationalism and absolutism of modern ages. Deconstructionalism, relativism and pragmatism are some leading characteristics of the postmodern philosophical attitude. In realm of epistemology, by rejecting absolute knowledge, postmodernism relates itself to power and capital spheres. Therefore a philosopher of education is interested to find out the relationship between knowledge, teaching, learning and power, capital and other changing cultural phenomena. Definition, historical roots and philosophical foundations of the postmodernism and its criticisms, are other issues that are discussed in this paper.
