In response to their call for papers, Tim Knepper and Gereon Kopf presented overviews of the textbook and teaching companion publications.
The colloquium invited scholars to examine ideas surrounding education in the context of global philosophy and religion. Educational environments are becoming ever-more international with increasing focus on the mobility of people and of ideas. The globalization of education poses particular challenges and opportunities. If philosophy and religion are recognized as global phenomena, how might this impact on understandings of and approaches to education? How do culturally divergent views of education and its philosophical significance differ?
