Résumé

The Last Book of Postmodernism comprises set of essays written on and about ‘postmodernism' and education. It is written in an apocalyptic tone that treats themes of religion and spiritualism, drawing on poststructuralist sources of inspiration, to contrast the present ‘postmodern condition' and the philosophical significance and historical influence of Nietzsche's statement ‘God is dead.' The book considers the meaning of the ‘end' of Christendom and the prospect of global spirituality.
It also considers the ‘end' of literature and the beginning of user-generated cultures and the implications of this shift for education and the philosophical model of dialogue that has dominated the humanities in the West. It charts the ‘end' of philosophy and the rise of ‘body' criticism, the promise of the Enlightenment, the relation between education, power and freedom, geophilosophy and the pedagogy of the concept, and the narrative turn as a basis for a new critical language for educational studies.
Finally, the book considers post-postmodernism and the ‘end' of the linguistic turn in educational theory.
