Abstract [en]

This book examines changes in of knowledge in modern social life. The contributors provide important intinterventions in contemporary discussions about power, change, and the challenges that were raised in the Enlightenment about knowledge, reason, and the possibilities of humanity. The studies in the book examines programs and crucaial reforms to understand their implications, assumptions and concequences. Firstly the chapters contribute to an international discussion one the historical relationships between social change, political rationality and the technologies of the self in a range of social life that included pedagogy. Secondly, the book offers new ways of studying and understanding the relation of the welfare state, social and educational sciences, and todays configurations of liberal governing. Thirdly, the discussion brings into focus and critiques the distinctions of social and educational theories that differentiate "context" and programs, divides discourse from the ""real", separates the subjective and objecttive and the personal and the public, and disconnects civil society from the "reason" in modern government.
