William Damon is Professor of education at Standford University; and Warren A. Nord is director of the Program in the Humanities and Human Values at the University of North California. In their books and research papers they have argued—with empirical evidence as well as philosophic insights—that we ought to take the moral question seriously, even though in the climate of cultural relativism there is skepticism towards solid moral certainties.
On the occasion of Henry Giroux’s birth anniversary we are happy to publish the extract from his article titled ‘Crossing the Boundaries of Educational Discourse: Modernism, Postmodernism and Feminism’. The New Leam believes that Henry Giroux is one of the leading critical pedagogues of our times, and his sharp reflections on culture, polity and education remind us of the discontents of the neo liberal notion of market-induced/skill-oriented learning.
