Abstract

Abstract Following Liberal Curriculum, most of the Peace-Based curricula emphasis on Convergence, Unity and Similarity; therewith the understanding of "difference" can be used as a source of the Peace-Based curricula. Although differences may be the cause of conflict and clash, but through cognizance and sympathy they will change into chances to enhance each other. Differences also will cause the rise of human capacity and the creation of aesthetics. This paper aims to prove that in order to codify a Peace-Based curriculum, it's possible to use both Postmodern Theories (which focus on Differences) and Liberal Theories (which focus on Similarities) simultaneously together.
