About the Author

Rasoul Nejadmehr is an independent researcher and has been working with Swedish and EU cultural and educational policies. He lives in Gothenburg, Sweden.


"Only now has a thorough history confronted the coloniality of western scientific education from the ground up. Rasoul Nejadmehr argues powerfully that Kant's philosophy is not the main problem, but rather a normalized Kantianism that forms the basis of modern education. It is a silent point of reference that frames how educators conduct contemporary schooling, often without overt knowledge of its guiding principles. Nejadmehr's genealogy presents in no uncertain terms Kantianism's racialized and colonial legacy on the practice of education. Once you engage this book, a return to innocence will be impossible. Kantian Genesis of the Problem of Scientific Education will become a classic in the study of race, colonialism, and philosophy of education."Zeus Leonardo,Professor and Associate Dean, Graduate School of Education and Faculty of the Critical Theory Designated Emphasis, University of California, Berkeley
