Most widely held works by Mark Olssen
Michel Foucault : materialism and education by Mark Olssen( )

30 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 2,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michel Foucault is arguably one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century, and his works are some of the most difficult to grasp. In Michel Foucault: Materialism and Education, Mark Olssen offers one of the most accessible overviews of Foucault's thought available to educators and general readers, putting into context the relevance of Foucault's thought for contemporary educational philosophy and theory. Olssen adds new insights to Foucault scholarship by bringing to light the influences of Marx, Nietzsche, Gramsci, Habermas, and other on Foucault's development as a thinker, and on the deep historical materialist stand that gardens and uniquely characterizes so much of Foucault's thought."--BOOK JACKET

Futures of critical theory : dreams of difference by Colin Lankshear( )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume attempts to renew and reinvigorate critical theory by extending its range and its intellectual trajectories through strategies of inclusiveness that respect and build on parallel traditions. The authors reinterpret the work of Nietzsche, Wittgenstein and Heidegger in relation to central figures (Kant, Marcuse, Foucault) and themes of critical theory - the critique of modernity, theory of the self and the question concerning technology
Liberalism, neoliberalism, social democracy : thin communitarian perspectives on political philosophy and education by Mark Olssen( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume discusses democracy and education within the context of a critique of liberalism and the justification of a new global conception of social justice. The author fundamentally picks arguments with standard liberal accounts and critically examines liberal concepts and ideas. The author demonstrates how liberal ideals need revision in a global age and that liberalism's fundamental conceptions relating to the individual, social justice, morality or ethics are not up to the task demanded of them. However, the book goes beyond the many critiques of liberalism, arguing for a new way forward in a global age, which preserves the centrally important values of liberal philosophy, viz. freedom and the rule of law
Critical theory and the human condition : founders and praxis( Book )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toward a global thin community : Nietzsche, Foucault, and the cosmopolitan commitment by Mark Olssen( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While critical of both traditions, this book argues that a coherent form of communitarianism is the only plausible option for citizens today. Using the theories of Frederich Nietzsche and Michael Foucault, Olssen shows how we can overcome traditional problems with communitarianism by using an ethic of survival that he identifies in the writings of Nietzsche and others to provide a normative framework for twenty-first century politics at both national and global levels. "Thin" communitarianism seeks to surmount traditional liberal objections associated with Hegel and Marx, and to safeguard liberty and difference by applying a robust idea of democracy. This work examines many different themes within the debate, including liberal autonomy, totalitarianism, and multiculturalism. It also considers the work of liberal writers such as Frederic Hayek, Karl Popper, and Isaiah Berlin."--Google Books
Re-reading education policies : a handbook studying the policy agenda of the 21st century( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book collects studies with a 'critical education policy orientation', and presents itself as a handbook of matters of public concern. The term 'critical' does not refer to the adoption of a particular theoretical framework or methodology, but rather it refers to a very specific ethos or way of relating to the present and the belief that the future should not be the repetition of the past. This implies a concern about what is happening in our societies today and what could or should be happening in the future. As a consequence, the contributors to the book rely on a general notion of public policy that takes on board processes, practices, and discourses at a variety of levels, in diverse governmental and non-governmental contexts, and considers the relation of policy to power, to politics and to social regulation. Following the detailed introduction that aims at picturing the landscape of studies with a 'critical education policy orientation', the book presents re-readings of six policy challenges; globalization, knowledge society, lifelong learning, equality/democracy/social inclusion, accountability/control/efficiency and teacher professionalism. It seeks to contextualise these in relation to issues of current global concern at the start of the 21st century. Despite the diversity of approaches, this collection of critical education policy studies shares a concern with what could be called 'the public, and its education,' and represents a snapshot of education policy research at a particular time". -- Book jacket
