  • Post-Modernism and Post-Compulsory Education.John Halliday - 2001 - Paideusis: Journal of the Canadian Philosophy of Education Society 14 (1):31-47.
    This paper examines and elaborates upon the work of two writers, Usher and Edwards who have explored the significance of post-modernism for those involved in the post-compulsory sector of education. They argue that postmodernism signals an increasing interest in this sector of education and a major challenge to the idea of compulsory schooling. In this paper it is argued that postmodernism challenges the very distinction between compulsory and postcompulsory education. It problematises and disturbs a number of entrenched assumptions about education, (...)

  • Lyotard’s Performance.Robin Usher - 2006 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 25 (4):279-288.
    Starting with Lyotard's characterisation of postmodernity as incredulity, this is related to another of his key concepts - that of 'performativity'. Lyotard appears to deploy performativity to characterise those technologies that bring about the optimisation of efficient performance. However, there is another sense of performativity where it is linked to performance.

  • Michael Peters' Lyotardian Account of Postmodernism and Education: Some Epistemic Problems and Naturalistic Solutions.John A. Clark - 2006 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 38 (3):391–405.
    Postmodernism has established a significant hold in educational thought and some of the most important ideas are to be found in the writings of Michael Peters. This paper examines his postmodern stance and use of Lyotard's account of knowledge, and from a naturalist point of view raises a number of objections centred on science as a metanarrative, the unity of the empirical and the evaluative, and reason, truth and the growth of knowledge. It is concluded that postmodern epistemology, unlike naturalism, (...)
