The Pedagogue of the Auratic Medium--Extending the Argument
Dobson, Stephen
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v42 n2 p325-331 May 2008
Nick Peim has recently revisited the work of Walter Benjamin; specifically his famous essay on art and mechanical reproduction. In this reply, I too draw upon the inspiration of Benjamin to extend the argument to the question of experience and what might count as knowledge, both in a philosophical sense and also in terms of the curriculum. To exemplify my argument I draw upon the topics of prostitution, gambling and the urban. They were all central to Benjamin's unfinished work "The Arcades Project".
