Pere Gelabert Amengual

Doctoral Program Doctorate in Education

Date of publication May of 2016

Pere Gelabert Amengual’s doctoral thesis shows Marshall McLuhan not only as a researcher of the fundamental rules of media behavior, but also as a promoter of the ideas that would shape the basic postulates of postmodern education.

As a final result it is concluded that McLuhan's findings were a stimulus in the advanced conception of education. His exploratory “probes” and intellectual tools have opened a new path for us to the integral analysis of future complex situations, not only pedagogical, but in many other fields of application.
