Another world is possible: The possibilities for a transformative post-capitalist education.
This chapter takes as its starting point the alienating reality of knowledge production in the global North, grounded in performance management and competition between individuals, subjects and institutions. One mode of analysis for intellectual work has been by reconsidering Marx’s conception of the general intellect as the knowledge, skills and capabilities that have been taken from labour and turned into movable property. In moving beyond the alienating conditions and relations of production, there exists the potential for new forms of humanism related to the functions of intellectual knowledge at the level of society, as mass intellectuality. In extending this, engagement with indigenous and decolonising studies in education enable us to turn these processes that erupt in the global North back upon themselves, to reveal stories and narratives that de-centre the world as the Universalisation of a provincial perspective, and its privileged, white, male forms of power. In moving beyond hope towards dignity and life, we might ask how plural, mutual voices enable us to do the work of dismantling necessary for a transformative post-capitalist education?
