Osberg, Deborah; Biesta, Gert – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2021
This paper problematizes current thinking about education by arguing that the question of educational purpose is not simply a socio-political question concerned with what the ends should be and why, but can also be understood as a structural question, concerned with the way we understand education's directional impetus. We suggest that it is…

Macfarlane, Bruce – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2021
Neoliberalism is invariably presented as a governing regime of market and competition-based systems rather than as a set of migratory practices that are re-setting the ethical standards of the academy. This article seeks to explore the way in which neoliberalism is shifting the prevailing values of the academy by drawing on two illustrations: the…

Peers, Chris – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2021
Could there be a better instance of ethical conflict at the scene of the modern Western university than the case of Martin Heidegger, who in 1933 became a Nazi, arguably to elevate his own standing and career? In this article I examine the opposing ethical forces that animated Heidegger's brief foray into Nazism, to ask whether the same forces…

Yu, Hui – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2020
Highlighting the fluid nature of habitus/capital, this paper critiques a 'rucksack approach' (Erel, 2010) in the Bourdieusian studies of Chinese migrants' cultural reproduction and social inclusion, which takes a determinism and fatalism standpoint and neglects the re-structuring of the migrant habitus and cultural capital over generations.…

Munzel, G. Felicitas – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
To perfect human beings with an innate propensity for radical evil is a formidable task. Kant explicitly says that the propensity for evil is not eradicable; it is rooted in human nature, specifically in the human power of choice-making. The task is to reorient the natural order of choice-making (which derives its maxim from an object of the…

Drawing on the aesthetic theory of Jacques Rancière and the Lacanian conception of lack, this paper offers an intervention into the notion of subjectivity which can be applied in critical studies of education. Critiquing the progressive and knowledge-oriented ideology of neoliberal systems, Rancière depicts a world in which politics turns out to…

Hedley, Douglas – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2018
In this article, the "Bild" or image of the sculptor used by Plotinus and adapted by his Christian follower Meister Eckhart forms the basis of a reflection on the religious or otherworldly dimension in ethics (as opposed to a reductionist or functionalist conception of ethics with its focus on human happiness in the sense of worldly…

Haynes, Joanna; Murris, Karin – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2017
This article discusses the idea of intra-generational education. Drawing on Braidotti's nomadic subject and Barad's conception of agency, we consider what intra-generational education might look like ontologically, in the light of critical posthumanism, in terms of natureculture world, nomadism and a vibrant indeterminacy of knowing subjects. In…

D'Olimpio, Laura; Teschers, Christoph – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2017
It can hardly be denied that play is an important tool for the development and socialisation of children.
