What is the aim of education in the 21” century? Is it to search for truth, to improve the human condition, or to bolster a country’s economy and meet the workforce needs of the state? Or should the aim of education be focused on social, academic, cultural, and intellectual development so that young people can grow up to be engaged and critical citizens?These very searching questions — questions about the nature of education — are the concern of an area of philosophy, namely, the philosophy of education. In the 3rd edition of Philosophy of Education Today: An Introduction, the authors, in their exploration of the various responses provided by different philosophies of education to these questions, have included posthumanism in the corpus of philosophies of education which influences education and the way that education is understood.
