Abstract

In educational theory postmodern critiques are on the increase. This chapter explores some of the limitations of postmodernism while highlighting the strengths of certain strands of postmodern thinking towards more responsive values-education practices. In particular it argues that a critical and liberatory postmodernism as expressed by liberation theology is an important framework for enhanced moral education.
