Summary
This volume discusses democracy and education within the context of a critique of liberalism and the justification of a new global conception of social justice. The author fundamentally picks arguments with standard liberal accounts and critically examines liberal concepts and ideas. The author demonstrates how liberal ideals need revision in a global age and that liberalism's fundamental conceptions relating to the individual, social justice, morality or ethics are not up to the task demanded of them. However, the book goes beyond the many critiques of liberalism, arguing for a new way forward in a global age, which preserves the centrally important values of liberal philosophy, viz. freedom and the rule of law
