This discussion is a continuation of the main Discussion page of the book(s) (on the Table of Contents).

Note that this environment permits multiple structures tailored for different audiences.

We start in English with a fairly generic approach which would work for people interested in learning and education from an historical and philosophical perspective.

As the sections develop, there might well emerge components of interest to learners of specific things (as suggested previously).

The volumes should cross time and cultures, though not necessarily using the same time scale for each culture.

The aim of this section is to discuss and discover insightful ways of grouping chapters into volumes - an on-going discussion.

Volume 1: Learning Through the Ages[edit]

Myths and legends, the great teachers, anthropological and genetic perspectives.

Volume 2: Cultures and Learning[edit]

Also through time. We might need volumes on this!

Introduction and Overview[edit]

Introducing this volume on the foundation of the previous volume.

Ideally,these sections should be written by local experts in their own language, and translated later.

Europe, Scandinavia, Mediterranean[edit]

Ancient Greece[edit]

Plato founded the Academy in Athens.

The wikipedia article on Plato refers to Platonic Scholarship and also to other thinkers of the time (Socrates and Aristotle), including his teachers.

The East[edit]


Confucius and Learning[edit]

Confucius - and followers on learning.

The Tao of Learning[edit]



The Americas[edit]




Synthesis and conclusion[edit]

Leading into the next volume.

Volume 3: Learning in the 20th Century[edit]

Perhaps a little further back than the 20th Century: philosophy and research.

Volume 4: Learning Today[edit]

Contemporary Praxis.

With roots in the past, facing contemporary issues.

Volume 5: Towards Collective Wisdom[edit]

The future - collective wisdom through connected knowledge.

In a networked world, with global knowledge and a global shared mind, a sustainable planet may become possible.
