This Chapter on ‘UNESCO’s common good idea of higher education and democracy’ compares the extant Euro-American notions of ‘public good’ to UNESCO’s recently developed concept of the ‘common good’. The UNESCO concept takes the idea of the communicative and inclusive public further, focusing on desired social relations, in the form of participative and solidaristic communities. It takes in private as well as public actors. Applied to higher education the notion of common good can be a useful heuristic that counters the attenuated notion of society in the market model.

Abstract

This Chapter on ‘UNESCO’s common good idea of higher education and democracy’ compares the extant Euro-American notions of ‘public good’ to UNESCO’s recently developed concept of the ‘common good’. The UNESCO concept takes the idea of the communicative and inclusive public further, focusing on desired social relations, in the form of participative and solidaristic communities. It takes in private as well as public actors. Applied to higher education the notion of common good can be a useful heuristic that counters the attenuated notion of society in the market model.
