Discourses of Indiscipline: An Informal Hobbesian Riposte to Cate Watson
McManus, Michael
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v11 n1 p25-30 Mar 2006
Classroom battles are real and not a metaphor. Warfare is a historical and present fact of human life. Life really is a battle and conflict inevitable; injuries to the psyche are just as real as those to the body. Schools cannot step outside society. It is not Foucault but Thomas Hobbes who offers the most perceptive insight into human behaviour and the best advice for coping with trouble in schools. Abstract from "Discourses of "Indiscipline": a Foucauldian Response," by Cate Watson, is appended. (Contains 4 notes.)
