Publishing and Intergenerational Learning for the Future of Philosophy in Education: An Interview with Paul Smeyers
Forster, Daniella J.
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v49 n2 p127-140 2017
Amongst a remarkable publishing career, Paul Smeyers, editor of the journal "Ethics and Education," has written extensively on the situation afflicting philosophy of education. A recently published editor's invited symposium in "Studies in Philosophy and Education" (Smeyers, De Ruyter, Waghid, & Strand, 2014) put forward and challenged arguments for greater fairness of comparison for success of philosophers of education in relation to other forms of educational research and academic research in general. Here, Smeyers speaks lucidly about his editorial role at "Ethics and Education" and its ethical obligations as mediator between authors, the journal's readership, reviewers, his local community, and future generations of philosophers of education across the world. In doing so, he shares advice for early career philosophers of education about the integrity of the field and how to survive the pervasive instrumentalist rationale that has overtaken educational research. This interview took place online between Paul in Leuven, Belgium, and me in Newcastle, Australia, in June 2014.
