This book examines Marxism and related political-economic theory, and its implications for education around the world, as seen in the history of the journal Educational Philosophy and Theory. As such, it illustrates the evolution of political-economic changes across societies, as they have been brought to bear within the academic field and in the journal, through the exploration of typical and noteworthy articles examining political-economic themes in the journal over time. The title, Marxism, Neoliberalism, and Intelligent Capitalism in Educational Philosophy and Theory, reflects this historical approach. From the 1960s to the 1980s in Western philosophy of education and in the journal, Marxism and other theory that centrally questioned free-market capitalism were considered as radical, extreme and too ‘political’. However, with the rise of the neoliberal age, a return to Marxist and other critical perspectives on capitalism and its relationship to liberalism have gained steam. In the 1990s and after, educational theorists have increasingly observed many detrimental impacts of neoliberalism in relation to principles of educational equity and justice, and for the cultivation and valuation of knowledge that benefits all.
