Peace education : exploring ethical and philosophical foundations by James Smith Page( )

The author examines five philosophical traditions - virtue ethics, consequentialist ethics, conservative political ethics, aesthetic ethics and ethics of care, and examines how each might provide a rationale for peace education. There is growing recognition of the importance of educating for peace, although yet as yet little has been written by way of exploring the possible philosophical and ethical foundations for peace education. This book aims to address this gap

Linkage report: Connecting the dots: Accountability and adult literacy by Carleton University( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This document is an analysis of themes that emerged from a study on improving accountability in the adult literacy field in Canada. The author says the study showed that those involved in adult literacy often hold differing views about what constitutes effective and appropriate accountability. This linkage report represents a synthesis of the results of work done through the Connecting the Dots project and is not an evaluation of the project. The project was undertaken on behalf of four partner organizations: the Centre for Literacy of Quebec; the Movement for Canadian Literacy; Literacy BC; and Research in Practice in Adult Literacy (RiPAL BC). Table of contents: * Introduction * Project elements and methods * Challenges * Defining accountability * The approach used in Connect the Dots * The essential lessons from Connecting the Dots * Lessons for accountability * So what is accountability?

Reply to Douglas Kellner's '9 by James Smith Page( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This article responds to the analysis by Douglas Kellner of the way the Bush Administration has manipulated media coverage, especially coverage of the attacks of 11/9/01, to support an aggressive foreign policy. The writer is generally in agreement with the analysis, although the article makes posits five propositions: 1) there is nothing new in using terror and atrocity as a pretext for war, 2) the attacks and response reflects a deeply ingrained culture of violence, including within the USA, 3) the current conflict is profoundly theological in nature, 4) the discourse of the US Administration reveals a profound ignorance of the possible motivations of the attackers, and 5) the portrayal of the attacks and the response reveals the continuing atavistic appeal of violence. By way of conclusion, it is suggested that there needs to be an on-going commitment towards educating for a culture of peace and that developing a critique of militaristic discourse is one start to this."--Abstract on item
