Postformal Education: A Philosophy for Complex Futures by Jennifer M. Gidley (Springer, 2016)
BOOK REVIEW by Marian de Souza, ACU & Federation University
in “International Journal of Children’s Spirituality” Vol. 22 (2), April 2017, pp. 179-180.
“This book certainly provides a valuable resource for educators who are looking for inspiring, novel and creative ways to address the learning and behavioural problems they face in everyday classrooms…
It is filled with a broad and detailed overview of the concepts and arguments of many important and influential philosophers and theorists, which is accompanied by an abundance of thoughtful and innovative deliberations.
It may be most appropriate for researchers, academics and post-graduate students in education, consciousness and cultural studies.
Accordingly, Gidley’s new book is a welcome addition to existing educational literature that is focused on forward thinking, sustainability and innovation, and with the needs of young people at its heart.”
