This book assesses what it means to face the educational challenges of the 21st century, and offers a way for education to develop whole human beings in the context of a sustainable planetary environment.

It goes almost without saying that the intellectual tools, ethical values, and practical skills required for a more humane, environmentally conscious and socially just epoch will be very different from many of those taught today. This book is primarily directed at teachers, teacher trainers and educational philosophers. But the author's magnificent analysis of where we find ourselves historically and his inspiring vision of where we could go in reshaping our communities will inspire a much wider readership.
