Edited by Sohail Inayatullah, Marcus Bussey and Ivana Milojevic
Neohumanist Educational Futures breaks new ground by linking neohumanism with pedagogy and futures thinking. Inayatullah, Bussey and Milojevic, all educators, theorize the ethics of inclusion and exclusion; situate neohumanism in Tantric and transcultural futures; map out issues in neohumanist pedagogy (including education for world futures; from information to wisdom; social cohesion in South Africa; speciesism and vegetarian pedagogy in Sweden; alternative indicators for neohumanism; integrated intelligence, peace and non-violence, partnership education; and the politics of historiography) and provide case studies of neohumanist educational practice.
A Documentation on NHE Schools Around the World
Edited by Didi Ananda Rama
This full sized 100 page book provides a colorful picture of the Neohumanist Education system world wide, with over 40 articles and 260 pictures from NHE schools around the world. The articles are written by teachers working in the schools, giving a first hand look into the NHE classroom.
“What is compelling about this collection of essays and anecdotes is that they are written by practitioners in the field, who are both deeply committed teachers from a variety of cultures and practicing Yogis. The wisdom and practical ideas thus generated in these pages come from intellectual analysis, practical experience, diverse outlooks, and spiritually informed intuition. Many theorists in the field of education believe that it is this combination of analysis, experience, perspective, and intuition that is the most solid basis for developing good theory.”
