An Integrative and Normative Model for Humanistic Education at the Advent of the 21st Century

Part of the Philosophy and Education book series (PHED, volume 9)

In this chapter I wish to present an integrative and normative concept of humanistic education that draws on the four approaches presented in Chapter One. This concept seeks to view these approaches not as disqualifying or exclusive of the others, but rather as complementary approaches that can be integrated into a model that will successfully address the tribulations and challenges of the period. The basis of this integrative approach is the perception that "educational truth and justice" are to be found not only in one of these approaches, but that each of them encapsulates values, sensitivities, insights and skills of great and prolific potential for a contemporary theory of humanistic education.
