Abstract

[This chapter takes as its starting point the notion that human consciousness is evolving beyond the boundaries of formal, reductionist modes of thinking. The emergence of new modes of thinking and new knowledge patterns is discussed via discourses that identify postformal reasoning, integral thinking, and planetary consciousness. The chapter explores the theoretical relationships between several themes arising from the evolution of consciousness literature and a diversity of postformal educational approaches. Four core pedagogical values emerge from the intersection between these two clusters: love, life, wisdom, and voice. These core values are elucidated theoretically in relation to philosophies of education and practically through examples from the art of education. They are offered as pedagogical seeds for evolving consciousness through education in the 21st century.]
