"In this book, we present a global vision for education, one that can guide students in the pursuit of societal justice and harmony. Drawing from diverse philosophical and cultural traditions, including Confucianism and Indigenous philosophies, as well as empirical research, we introduce curriculum principles designed to motivate and inform students’ thoughtful and compassionate deliberation of public issues." -- from the authors
