Riassunto: This volume broadens the horizon of educational research in North America by introducing a comprehensive dialogue between Eastern and Western philosophies and perspectives on the subject of curriculum theory and practice. It is a very timely work in light of the progressively globalized nature of education and educational studies and the increasingly widespread attunement to Eastern educational theories in the West.
By introducing Eastern perspectives, this book questions taken-for-granted thinking in Western educational thought about the foundations of teaching and learning, curriculum theory, educational policy, and educational issues such as teaching for social justice, service-learning initiatives, human rights and environmental education, and the teaching of content area subjects. It provides an important opportunity for scholars from different countries and different disciplines to establish a solid yet accessible foundation of East-West inquiry that furthers the scope and depth of curriculum studies and to disseminate the insights from this book in the venues in which they work.
Researchers, faculty, and graduate students in the fields of curriculum theory, curriculum and instruction, educational foundations, philosophy of education, international/comparative education, and multicultural educational studies will welcome this book. It is appropriate as a text for upper-level courses in these areas.
“...a sterling example of how the internationalization of curriculum studies deepens intercultural dialogue in the face of globalization.... Each chapter responds in some way to the dualisms of modernist logic, which has thrown us out of balance with nature, recalling the rich inheritance of centuries-old wisdom traditions founded upon harmony of mind, body, and spirit. Not only does this volume offer new directions in curriculum theory it will give sustenance to educators searching for a direction home, out of a deepening intellectual, spiritual, and moral confusion.”

“The crises that afflict our educational systems will not be resolved without fresh ways of thinking. This insightful book is a good place to start: Western pedagogy engages with the wisdom of Asian traditions. The cross-cultural dialogues that result provide the kind of new perspectives that we need today.”
—David R. Loy
