This book examincs changes in the politics of knowledge in modern social life. The contributors provide important intervention 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 examine a range of social programs and educational reforms i to understand their implications, assumptions and consecequences. Firstly, the chapters contribute to an international discussion on the historical relationships between social change, political rationalities, 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 education sciences, and today's configurations of liberal governing. Thirdly, the discussion brings into focus and critiques the i distinctions of social and educational theories that differentiate "context" and programs, divides discoursrse from the "real", separates the subjective and objective and the personal and the public, and disconnects civil society from the state "reason" in modern government.
