Using Jeremy Rifkin’s The End of Work and Robert Reich’s The Work of Nations as primary sources, this paper examines the implications of a paradigm shift to a near-workerless world, especially as they relate to education. The paper consists of three chapters: the first chapter gives an historical overview of the Industrial Revolution, which provides a context for discussing the implications of the work of Rifkin and Reich; the third chapter reviews the major implications presented by Rifkin and Reich; the third chapter reviews the major implications as they relate to education. Recommendations for developing a disposition for critical and creative thinking as well as a description of a sub-set of pertinent critical and creative thinking skills is given in chapter three.
