Philosophy and the Rationalisation of Educative Action: The Example of Personal Autonomy
Foray, Philippe
European Educational Research Journal, v10 n3 p343-355 2011
In France, the philosophy of education is not accustomed to reflect on the concept of the "education system". Often, the "humanistic" purposes that it gives to education are far away from the real goals of a systematic education. Often also, it is confined to a critical attitude, whose constructive side is missing. Which form of philosophical practice is desirable vis-a-vis the transformations of the education systems? How to develop an at the same time normative and critical thought, which take account of the current evolutions? This is what this contribution is concerned with, using the limited example of personal autonomy. (Contains 3 notes.)
