Postindustrial?

Some people believe we live in postindustrial times. Others believe it’s the good old industrial age, just grown sleeker and more technological.

Which one do you believe?

What type of educational philosophy could be more pragmatic to choose in order to succeed in the context you believe is in store for you after graduation from college?

I promised to provide a link to the full text of the textbook article on laissez innover. This one seems to be useful too.

We also mentioned “Modern Times” (the Charlie Chaplin movie), Marx, Noam Chomsky, Peter Drucker, Richard Reich. I would like to throw in Aldous Huxley’s “Brave New World” novel and the non-fiction “sequal”, “Brave New World Revisited”. A key word you should not miss is “knowledge society”.

Happy research!
