pedagogy of the other.
Building blocks for a peace education in the postmodern age.

From the tradition of "critical peace education" Werner Wintersteiner develops new perspectives for the self-image of peace education. The author begins with a critique of the "culture of war" and "cultural violence" (Galtung): The work on a "culture of peace" should become the link between the area of pedagogy and the development of society as a whole. The core of a culture of peace is the confrontation with the diverse symbolic forms in which we conceive, justify and practice our dealings with the "other" (understood as with the otherness as with the other person).
