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…

Wilson, Anthony – Education 3-13, 2021
This paper is a re-examination of Louise Rosenblatt's seminal work of reader-response theory, The Reader, The Text, The Poem. I argue that poems are essentially social in nature and that they open up a space in which conversation and interpretation can take place. With Rosenblatt I argue that until a reader engages with a poem, bringing to it a…

Toscano, Maurizio; Quay, John – Science & Education, 2021
This paper argues that pragmatist philosophies and theories of science, education and art have dominated our understanding of aesthetics in science education in ways that overshadow other important and pertinent aspects of aesthetic experience. For all its strengths, a pragmatist account of science education and aesthetics remains vulnerable to a…

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…

Choo, Suzanne S. – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Recent debates among scholars in Literature education have led to polarizing views about the aims of the subject. The debate reignites ancient quarrels about the aesthetic and political values of literary study and relatedly, the different pedagogical approaches to teaching. In the first part of this paper, I explore the aesthetic-political divide…

Stabler, Albert – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2021
Sentimentalism as a genre is known for its association with melodramatic 19th-century novels, such as Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" or Alcott's "Little Women." But, as a cultural tendency, sentimentalism can be found in a range of 19th- and 20th-century cultural, social, and political phenomena, with philanthropic and educational…

Beatham, Mark – Ethics and Education, 2021
Could public education as a cultural institution promote the commonwealth? ('Commonwealth,' from The Oxford English Dictionary as, 'public welfare; general good or advantage;' and 'to a body or a number of persons united by some common interest.') This paper argues proper education enfranchises the young through proper relationships to place, past…

Doddington, Christine – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2021
In this paper, I set an aspect of what it is to live a flourishing life against the backdrop of neo liberal trends that continue to influence educational policy across the globe. The view I set out is in sharp contrast to any narrow assumption that education's main task is the measurement of high performing individuals who will thus contribute to…

Gulati, Nidhi – Contemporary Education Dialogue, 2020

He positions the 'sensible' as a political construct, as a way of both being and transcending the conditions of cultural and social life. Rancière's oeuvre…

Lewis, Tyson E.; Xu, Li – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
In this paper, we pose a speculative encounter between Heidegger and the Chinese Song Dynasty landscape painter Xia Gui. Our intention is to reassess Heidegger's theory of the fourfold. By placing the concept in a cross-cultural context, we argue that Heidegger was essentially correct in that the world is structured as a fold between interrelated…
