Social Justice & Education

Human Development & Integral MetaTheory

Stein’s work focuses on social justice and education through the lenses of developmental psychology and integral metatheories. He studied philosophy and religion at Hampshire College, and educational neuroscience, human development, and the philosophy of education at Harvard University. Stein was a co-founder of Lectica, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to the research-based justice-oriented reform of large-scale standardized testing in K-12, higher-education, and business. He has been published in a wide range of outlets including American Psychologist, New Ideas in Psychology, Mind, Brain, and Education, Integral Review, and the Journal of Philosophy of Education. He is also the Academic Director of the activist think-tank at the Center for Integral Wisdom, and Core Faculty at Meridian University.


Current Projects

Stein is currently working on four book projects:

Tipping the scales: social justice and educational measurement

This is an extension of his dissertation: Stein, Z. (2014). Tipping the scales: social justice and educational measurement. (doctoral dissertation). Harvard University Graduate School of Education. Cambridge, MA.

He is in talks with Harvard University Press and Routledge about publishing it as a book.

Recreating humanity: a thought experiment in the philosophy of education

The MetaIntegral Foundation has provided some support for this project, which will creatively transform some 200 pages of previously published material into a book on the philosophy of education and a critique of educational technology.

Schooling in Late-Capitalist America (with Hans Despain)

Hans Despain and Stein address issues in contemporary education from the perspective of Dialectal Critical Realism and Integral Theory.

Evolutionary love: towards an new image of humanity (with Marc Gafni)

Working with Rabbi Marc Gafni, they address philosophical issues in evolutionary theory and advance an emancipatory metatheory of evolution, best described as acosmic humanism. This is a new image of humanity’s place in the universe and an ontology of the concrete singular individual, or the Unique Self. This book is being written with the Support of the Center for Integral Wisdom.
