Since the 1990s the neoliberal turn determines all essential fields of German society, starting with enterprise management via local government and state welfare through to school education. Especially (socially) critical researchers complain about the hegemony of neoliberal argumentation. They criticize that the generally accepted “common sense”-character of neoliberal logic makes it a truth without any alternatives.
It’s the aim of the book to analyse the (in-)visibility of neoliberal argumentation in school books and curricula of the state of Brandenburg from a critical perspective. The analysis is limited to questions of urban geography. The results are interpreted and contextualized in a historic reconstruction of geography as a school subject. Finally, the aim was to demonstrate how teachers can figure out a critical view on the topic “neoliberalization and city” to implement a critical geography into the lesson.
