Mathematics Education within the Postmodern
A volume in the series: International Perspectives on Mathematics Education - Cognition, Equity & Society. Editor(s): Bharath Sriraman, The University of Montana. Lyn English, Queensland University of Technology.
This timely and accessible book presents a challenge to accepted wisdoms about both the nature of mathematics and of education. The authors of this groundbreaking volume bring to bear on this intersection a postmodern sensibility that engages with the grand narratives of mathematics education. Thus they provide a key resource for rethinking theory and practice in mathematics education.
Each of the chapters develops important insights for mathematics education from mainly French intellectuals of the past: Foucault, Lacan, Lyotard, Deleuze. Each chapter addresses issues relevant to mathematics education, researching and teaching mathematics.
