Abstract New thinking patterns and ways of knowing have emerged in the last century. All the major academic disciplines have been evolving new forms and processes. Mainstream education has remained trapped in a 19th century industrial mindset. Developmental psychologists have identified higher stages of postformal reasoning. Education must evolve to incorporate postformal reasoning and postmodern culture.
