University education for an age of technology

McLaren, John (1989) University education for an age of technology. UNSPECIFIED. (Unpublished)

Abstract

Contains a discussion on education and the role of technology. Education is defined as both an individual and a social good, however education which we conceive of only as a means to the end of wealth inevitably leads to personal and social fragmentation. If we understand wealth as value, however, we are forced to consider education as first value in itself, and thus as one means by which we bring value to the world. This value may be in the form of material production, but it may also take the form of the better understanding of ourselves and the world.
