Editors: Peter Herrmann (University College Cork, Department of Applied Social Studies, Ireland)
Book Description:
Concerning the on-going political debate about the direction of strategic decisions in economic developments and world systems theory, this book addresses a closely linked question how, on this basis, institutions develop which are to a large extent responsible for the reasoning of the world. Although the complex relationship cannot be grasped, the following will look at some important issues around the question of how academic institutions are shaped by the processes of a main characteristic of this development. This main characteristic is seen here as the further process of commodification which in our context rules completely the area of education.
