Editorial Reviews


“There is much in Postmodern Philosophical Critique and the Pursuit of Knowledge in Higher Education which is compelling....Mourad provides more than a timely critique of this system. While many postmodernists are uneasy about talking in these terms, Mourad offers a 'foundation' on which a new system of inquiry might be legitimatelyexpanded, rather than replaced, providing the potential for a new direction and purpose for research in institutions of higher education.”–Australian Educational Researcher

“A clear, lucid analysis about postmodernity and knowledge production. This is a text that will appeal to those who have read the postmodernists extensively as well as the neophytes who wish to learn more about what all the fuss is about. Mourad offers a guide that offers us a way out of the postmodern maze by understanding it, and of course, ourselves.”–William G.Tierney Professor and Director,Center for Higher Education Policy Analysis University of Southern California

“Roger Mourad lays out the possibilities for inquiry in higher education in light of the failure of the Enlightenment project and postmodernism's critique. In an era of relentless criticism of higher education, Mourad's analyses could provide a renewed sense of intellectual purpose and direction for the academy.”–Yvonna S. Lincoln Professor of Higher Education Texas A & M University

Book Description

What is the significance of postmodern philosophy for the pursuit of knowledge generally? The author explores the philosophical basis for an expanded field of inquiry through a cogent analysis of the thinking of five leading postmodern philosophers: Lyotard, Rorty, Schrag, Foucault, and Derrida.
