Education’s Turn to Life World Under Globalization

Yifen DU, Jiagang ZHANG


Education’s return to life world is the consensus of current educational circle, but problems like how to achieve it against the background of globalization need further exploration. Husserl’s theory of life world points out that education’s return to life world reflects the modernity dilemma in education, that is, the system’s erosion on the life world makes the purpose and means of education at the wrong end; education’s return to life world is actually the decolonization of the colonized life world.
