Many people, whether educators or not, will agree that an education that does not inspire wonder is barren. Wonder is commonly perceived as akin to curiosity, as stimulating inquiry, and as something that enhances pleasure in learning, but there are many experiences of wonder that do not have an obvious place in education. In Wonder and Education, Anders Schinkel theorises a kind of wonder with less obvious yet fundamental educational importance which he calls 'contemplative wonder'. Contemplative wonder disrupts frameworks of understanding that are taken for granted and perceived as natural and draws our attention to the world behind our constructions, sparking our interest in the world as something worth attending to for its own sake rather than for our purposes. It opens up space for the consideration of (radical) alternatives wherever it occurs, and in many cases is linked with deep experiences of value; therefore, it is not just important for education in general, but also, more specifically, for moral and political education.

These economic essays elucidate phenomena of global transformation, unresolved transition problems and challenging uncertainties we observe throughout the global economy. Broad issues of theory and policy are tackled as the writers are stimulated by the new analytical puzzles into developing our conceptual and theoretical understanding of these phenomena. This book consists of contributions from thirty-one economists and social scientists from the US, Europe and Australia. The main interests of the authors lie in various branches of international economics and development studies, and all the authors share an aspiration to understand the behaviour of the major private and public actors: enterprises, states and international groupings.
