The contemporary epoch of a knowledge society requires a new approach to understanding knowledge, which is different from what was basic during the modern era up to now. The foundation of knowledge can no longer be understood by assuming its ultimate origin in a rational subject. The implications of the new approach to knowledge have fundamental impact on ethics in the knowledge society.

„Bildungsräume für die ‚Wissensgesellschaft‘!“ Pädagogisch-philosophische Kennzeichnungen für die modernen technisierten Gesellschaften unter Einbeziehung neuerer Befunde qualitativempirischer Bildungs- und UnterrichtsforschungDez 18th, 2009 | By Roland Mugerauer | Category: Evolution, Philosophy, Topics
Which approaches to learning and formation of knowledge (‚Bildungsräume‘) and understanding exist in today’s technologically oriented ‚knowledge society‘ and which approaches will be required to sustain this society? Guided by the analysis of three key terms on this topic ‚knowledge‘, ‚learning‘ and ‚orientation‘, I am investigating the pedagogical and philosophical aspects and extracting the type of knowledge and Bildung that will be needed. Furthermore, I outline additional pedagogical research themes. This investigation includes recent qualitative and empirical research, as well as neglected approaches of Plato’s philosophy.
