A Response to Annette Gough and Jesse Bazzul. Subverting Subjectivity: An Anti-Neoliberal Reformulation of Science Education for Life
Levinson, Ralph
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v12 n4 p907-913 Dec 2017
In responding to Jesse Bazzul's and Annette Gough's articles I maintain that contemporary positivist science curricula cannot address the urgent issues of sustainability and biopower that confront us. Drawing on the writings and interpretations of Emmanuel Levinas I argue that contemplating the meaning of responsibility to the Other is a radically subversive activity and a means of moving from the neoliberal dominance of science education towards a science one steeped in social justice.
