Abstract

The first part of this article examines the historical emergence of contemporary globalization phenomena through Protestantism, European colonialism, technology and the restructuring of international business enterprise, and the rise of various forms of fundamentalism. The changing mandates of teaching and education under the influence of these phenomena are identified. The second part of the article explores possibilities for teaching in the age of globalization under three themes: the recovery of personal truth, truth as shared, and truth as home.
