Adam Smith and the Educative Critique: A Response to My Commentators
Weinstein, Jack Russell
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v34 n5 p541-550 Sep 2015
This paper is both a response to the four reviewers in a special symposium on my book Adam Smith's Pluralism and a substantive discussion of philosophy of education. In it, I introduce what I call "the educative critique," a mode of analysis similar to Marxist, feminist, or postcolonial critiques, but focusing on the educative role of a text. I argue that choosing education as a theme is itself a solution to interpretive difficulties, not an add-on that only concerns pedagogues and policy-makers.
