Response: Education at the Crossroads in the Experience of Potentiality
Yun, Suninn
Ethics and Education, v11 n3 p378-383 2016
This paper is a response to the previous articles on potentialism. It draws attention to the particular nature of the stance taken by potentialism. Although the project of potentialism is not a simple matter of establishing another discipline in education, it wavers at the junction between the prescriptive ("what education should be like") and the descriptive ("what education is") understanding towards education. This paper raises the question how the project of "potentialism" relates to the prescriptive and the descriptive, and thereby how educational questions around the experience of potentiality can be shaped. Second, it explores further four key points in the account of potentialism as developed in the previous articles: the educational subject, tiredness vs. exhaustion, language and thinking.
