A Society of Signs? Mediating a Learning Society
Abstract:This article critiques certain notions of a learning society. These are framed largely in economic and humanist frameworks of competitiveness and social exclusion. This overlooks the implications of information, communications and media technologies, and the linguistic turn in social theory. These suggest a learning society can be framed as a ‘society of signs’ Some of the possible implications of the latter are outlined.
