Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Policy Futures in Education, 2010
The later Horkheimer presents mature Critical Theory as a Jewish Negative Theology. This change carries major educational implications hegemonic critical pedagogy has not yet dared to address until now and much less in the present era of the new anti-Semitism as the meta-narrative of the progressive circles. In Horkheimer's work the change from a…

Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Policy Futures in Education, 2010
Is it possible that the essence of peace is negated in peace education? And is it possible that even against its own will peace education calls for the negation of its negation? In peace education no serious attempts have been made to elaborate its most central concepts. "Pacifism", "violence", "counter-violence" and "emancipation", "culture of…

Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Policy Futures in Education, 2010
Counter-education that addresses seriously the challenge of loss, exile, and the deceiving "home-returning" projects accepts that no positive Utopia awaits us as "truth", "genuine life", "worthy struggle", "pleasure" or worthy self-annihilation. Loss is not to be recovered or compensated; not for the individual nor for any kind of "we". And yet,…

Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Policy Futures in Education, 2010
A new critical language is possible yet its becoming is not guaranteed. Its roots and sources should be diverse, universal and Diasporic. Jewish negative theology is ultimately Diasporic and could become one of its edifying sources. Diaspora is not only an intellectual state, not necessarily collective but communal. One of the things that makes…

Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Policy Futures in Education, 2010
Under current historical conditions, as Israelis, Jews are structurally almost prevented from facing the possibility of living in light of the Messianic impetus, as the world's universal moral, intellectual, and creative vanguard. This special Jewish mission was made possible by the Jews' unique homelessness--a Diasporic existence as a realized…

Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Educational Theory, 2005
From a contemporary perspective, the work of the Frankfurt School thinkers can be considered the last grand modern attempt to offer transcendence, meaning, and religiosity rather than "emancipation" and "truth." In the very first stage of their work, Adorno and Horkheimer interlaced the goals of Critical Theory with the Marxian revolutionary…

Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Policy Futures in Education, 2005
From its very beginning sports activity became--already within the framework of the modern nation-building project, establishing national ethos, and constituting effective colonization of the Other--a central element of the effort of the modern system to create, represent, and consume the modern body and soul and to create the healthy-conquering…

Suggests that educators, as agents of the system, should be dedicated to abolishing this otherness. Proposes a sort of counter-education that will encourage harmony and mutual respect toward…

Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Educational Theory, 1999
Reconstructs the critique and utopia of cyberfeminism, arguing that cyberfeminism does not advance feminist emancipation nor contribute to the elevation of counter-education, which will challenge the violence of the hegemonic order of things and its educational manipulations. Cyberfeminism is part of the system that must be overcome, not a radical…

Evaluates the issue of producing and controlling the memories of the Holocaust as an example of the struggle over self-identity and the recognition of "the other" as a moral subject. Analyzes Israeli refusals to acknowledge the genocides/holocausts of other peoples as a test case for a humanist-oriented moral education. (DSK)
