The Philosophy of Education as the Economy and Ecology of Pedagogical Knowledge
Thompson, Christiane
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v34 n6 p651-664 Nov 2015
What does reflection on educational theory and education today actually aim at, if theory and practice can no longer be formulated as a unity? This article describes the German discourse of educational philosophy and outlines its critical view discussing the "limits of understanding subjectivity". In the following parts it is argued that the philosophy of education of the future will encompass an "economy" as well as an "ecology" of pedagogical or educational knowledge. Here, analyses of contemporary educational practices are brought together with the invention and discovery of other or alternative possibilities.
