    Abstract

    There is an abundance of thought-provoking themes in Kenneth Wain’s The Learning Society in a Postmodern World , and in a short colloquium contribution such as this I can address only a selected few of these, and then only in an initial way. I’ll proceed by commenting first of all on the historical context in which the author places the book’s arguments and critiques. Then I will take up just a few issues that have struck myself as particularly significant, and offer a few points of my own on these. In conclusion, I will comment on what Wain discerns as the best prospects for educational action in our times.
