Peters, Michael A., Rider, Sharon, Hyvönen, Matts, Besley, Tina. (Eds.) (2018) Post-Truth, Fake News: Viral Modernity & Higher Education, Springer
Post-Truth, Fake News: Viral Modernity & Higher Education is an edited collection that brings together international authors working in Australia, China, Croatia, Romania, Canada, New Zealand, Portugal, Sweden, UK and USA to discuss the meaning and purpose of higher education in a “post-truth” world. The editors and authors argue that notions such as “fact” and “evidence” in a post-truth era must be understood not only politically, but also socially and epistemically. The essays philosophically examine the post-truth environment and its impact on education with respect to our most basic ideas of what universities, research and education are or should be. https://www.springer.com/gp/book/9789811080128#aboutAuthors
Ruyu Hung (2018) Education between Speech and Writing: Crossing the Boundaries of Dao and Deconstruction
Education between Speech and Writing explores how graphocentrism affects Chinese education and culture. It moves away from the contemporary educational practices in China of following the Western model of phonocentrism, to demonstrate that each perspective interacts and counteracts with each other, creating a dialogue between Eastern and Western thought. Chapters explore the consonances and dissonances between the two, problematizing the educational practices of Chinese tradition and proposing a dialectical thinking of post-graphocentrism, based on the concepts of Dao and deconstruction.
