Example text

In many ways, our lives are governed by theories, whether we recognize them as such or not. Theories shape our understandings and produce our practices. We ‘embody’ theories, often without realizing. In other words, we absorb theories into ourselves to such a degree that they govern our ideas and actions, although we may not recognize what is going on—even to the extent of confusing theory with truth. As such theories can become ‘taken for granted’, selfevident, unquestioned and seen as the only right way to think and act, rather than being understood as just one possible way of thinking and acting.

More specifically, is it possible to locate minority-majority relationships within a postmodern framework? If so, what would this look like? Is this framework, which foregrounds diversity, complexity and multiple perspectives, likely to be productive of more equal and dialogic relationships and of ‘a form of knowledge that respects the other without absorbing it into the same’ (Young, 1990:9)? We seek some answers to these questions in Chapter 8, using the case of a particular collaborative relationship between a First Nations group and a university in Canada, entered into for the purpose of producing a curriculum for training early childhood workers.

Any analysis of the world in which we live also has to take account of other areas and the changes they are experiencing. Economic changes are paralleled by the fragmentation of social classes; individualistic modes of thought and behaviour and an entrepreneurial culture flourish; lifestyles proliferate, and domestic life and leisure are increasingly privatized (Kumar, 1995). The collapse of Communism has made the problems in contemporary liberal democracy all the more apparent, in particular widespread disengagement and disillusionment with traditional politics and political institutions and increasing cynicism about the elected representatives who populate these institutions.
