Capitalism’s global imperium and the continuing need for radical democratic agency

Richard A. Brosio
Vol 14, Number 1, p.46
The work before you has been written in the wake of a five year study that was published in the spring of 1994 (Brosio: 1994). In the autumn of that year I gave an address at a regional philosophy of education society in the U.S. which is entitled 'Globalism, Postmodernism, the Politics of Identity and the Need for Broad Democratic Political/Educational Coalitions.' This second work represents an attempt to relate more specifically the radical democratic theses of A Radical Democratic Critique of Capitalist Education to the terrain called the politics of identity. It is my intent here to pursue the analytic trajectory that has occupied me since the late 1980s - and in many ways for most of my scholarly life.
