Expanding the Deweyan Self: Revisiting an Underexplored Past to Inform Future Inquiry
Blanken-Webb, Jane
Philosophical Studies in Education, v45 p146-156 2014
This article considers the concept of self as a core concern within the philosophy of education. The question that is asked is "How do we understand the self that is being educated? This issue is a concern as is any theory of education today that seeks to persuade teachers and public alike that education should be grounded in a healthy, substantial, well articulated conception of the human. While Jane Blanken-Webb believes that Charles Taylor stands out the most in leading the contemporary discussion of selfhood, she also urges that educators also consider John Dewey's philosophy in this regard. Blanken-Webb begins her inquiry by looking back on underexplored research in the field and ultimately offers suggestions for future inquiries based on insights from self psychology.
