Our world is currently undergoing major transformations, from climate change and politics to agriculture and economics. The world we have known is disappearing and a new world is being born.

The world we have known is disappearing and a new world is being born. The subjects taught in schools and universities today are becoming irrelevant at faster and faster rates. Not only are we facing complex challenges of unprecedented size and scope, we're also facing a learning and capacity deficit that threatens the future of civilization. Education in a Time Between Worlds seeks to reframe this historical moment as an opportunity to create a global society of educational abundance. Educational systems must be transformed beyond recognition if humanity is to survive the planetary crises currently underway. Human development and learning must be understood as the Earth's most valuable resources, with human potential serving as the open frontier into which energy and hope can begin to flow. The expansive essays within this book cover a diverse array of topics, including social justice, the neuroscience of learning, deschooling, educational technology, standardized testing, the future of spirituality, basic income guarantees, and integral meta-theory. As an invitation to re-vision the future of schools, technology, and society, Education in a Time Between Worlds replaces apathy and despair with agency, transformation, and hope.

    ‘Education in a Time Between Worlds’ is a ground-breaking work of thought which looks at education as fundamental to the global meta-crisis we face today. Zachery Stein looks at the education crisis as the bedrock upon which all other crisis- from climate, to health, to economic- can be resolved. Stein argues that a re-imagining of human potential, along with the value we place in it, is needed to make the phase-shift into a sustainable planetary society.

Zachery Stein looks at the education crisis as the bedrock upon which all other crisis- from climate, to health, to economic- can be resolved. Stein argues that a re-imagining of human potential, along with the value we place in it, is needed to make the phase-shift into a sustainable planetary society. Zach Stein works from the model of Integral Theory, developed primarily by Ken Wilbur, which attempts to integrate and include as much of reality as possible within it’s lens of understanding. “Integral consciousness is motivated to always learn, grow, and develop.” This book explores how a paradigm of Integral Education would be radically democratic, decentralized, and would support the emergent actualization of each Unique Self and their flourishing. He contrasts this with the current education system and it’s basis on human capital theory which seeks to assess the success of the system by measuring the economic out-put of the individual. He explores deeply the intrinsic injustice of the current education system which emphasises a certain system of values that often exclude the unique, interior experience. Zach Stein places the failings of our education system in the broader context of the meritocracy our world operates in. He proposes ‘13 Social Miracles’ to solve the planetary meta-crisis and create educational abundance. These miracles include world-wide debt forgiveness, universal basic income, and renewable, inexhaustible energy. His vision seems impossibly utopian, and the details of how these miracles could be brought about are only sketched in broad strokes, but his argument that this time of planetary crisis calls for “concrete utopian thinking’ is compelling. The book is an inspirational call for this kind of transformational thinking and a reorienting of our path on this planet.

    Excellent synopsis of our unique moment in time but I would love more background about why he chose some of the specific solutions he chose at the end.
