Liang, Yuanyuan; Zheng, Fei – Children's Literature in Education, 2020
Love, beauty, and the good are three key concepts of Platonic aesthetics, which frequently appear in the fairy tales of Oscar Wilde, a classical scholar deeply influenced by Plato and his philosophy.

Lewis, Tyson E. – Studies in Art Education: A Journal of Issues and Research in Art Education, 2020
This article proposes a 'pataphysical turn for arts-based research through the work of Alfred Jarry. Jarry outlined a unique research program that falls neatly neither into scientific inquiry nor artistic creation. Rather, this type of research can be defined in terms of three interconnected themes: (1) a postmetaphysical examination of the laws…

Vieira, Patrícia – Hispania, 2020
In this article, I use aerial footage of the Amazon as a guiding thread to argue that the sublime is the most fitting concept to describe our aesthetic response to the representation of Amazonian nature in cinema. In my discussion of rainforest aesthetics, I focus on two Brazilian films, made ten years apart: Glauber Rocha's short "Amazonas,…

Brahier, John – Journal of Catholic Education, 2019
The author seeks to use the limited contact time they have with students to engage them not only in academic pursuits but also in a discussion of the divine mission of humans. Since this can be difficult to meaningfully do in a math class, the author is continually searching for meaningful, engaging points of contact between mathematics and…

Richerme, Lauren Kapalka – Music Education Research, 2018
While Langer's assertions about feeling and art have had a marked impact on music educators' thinking and action, they have also earned substantial critique. The purpose of this philosophical inquiry is to examine Langer's and Deleuze's writings about the ontology of art and to posit a new concept, 'becoming feeling,' inspired by the meeting of…

Gibbs, Alexis – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
The working thesis of my latest research is that cinema can offer a viewer something of a 're-education in education'. In the case of policymakers and researchers in the field of education, this means looking again at the reality of the conceptual phenomena with which we occupy ourselves in writing to see whether the two groups are aligned. This…

Bell, Michael – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
What is thought, and how can it be taught? Philosophy and literature have often promoted different conceptions although each requires, consciously or not, a mutually inclusive understanding. The question of value, which lurks at the centre of this, was given special salience by the literary critic, and 'anti-philosopher', F. R. Leavis who still…

Habron, John; van der Merwe, Liesl – International Journal of Music Education, 2017
Several authors have noted that one of Émile Jaques-Dalcroze's aims was to dissolve the mind-body dualism, typical of Cartesianism. However, there has been little research on the spirit-body connection, as it appears in Jaques-Dalcroze's writings. The purpose of this document analysis is to understand how a hermeneutic phenomenological model for…

Johnson, Marilynn – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Interpretation is the process by which we find meaning in the things in the world around us: clouds on the horizon, bones, street signs, hairbrushes, uniforms, paintings, letters, and utterances. But where does that meaning come from and on what basis are we justified in saying a particular meaning is the right meaning? Drawing from debates in the…

Østergaard, Edvin – Science & Education, 2017
Focus of this article is the current situation characterized by students' de-rootedness and possible measures to improve the situation within the frame of education for sustainable development. My main line of argument is that science teachers can practice teaching in such a way that students are brought in deeper contact to the environment. I…
