Goralnik, Lissy; Dobson, Tracy; Nelson, Michael Paul – Canadian Journal of Environmental Education, 2014
In this paper we argue for the need for a thoughtful and intentional pedagogy in experiential environmental learning that educates for empathetic relationships with humans, nonhuman others, and natural systems, or field philosophy.

Matthews, Michael T.; Williams, Gregory S.; Yanchar, Stephen C.; McDonald, Jason K. – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2017
The notion of designer empathy has become a cornerstone of design philosophy in fields such as product design, human-computer interaction, and service design.

Cole, David R. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Using Deleuzian theory for educational research and practice has become an increasingly popular activity (e.g., Cole 2011). However, there are many theoretical complexities to the straightforward application of Deleuze to the educational context. For example, the 'new materialism' that Deleuze refers to in the 1960s takes its inspiration from…

Alerby, Eva; Arndt, Sonja; Westman, Susanne – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
The aim of this paper is to challenge the physical and conceptual boundaries of educational places and spaces with the use of metaphor: the story of Professor Kirke's magic wardrobe in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis (1950). By explicating and theorising the concerns that…

Watkins, Megan – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2018
This article engages critically with Bourdieu's notion of field. It questions the emphasis that Bourdieu places on what he terms 'objective relations' at the expense of the actual relations of those within a field. This not only involves relations between human actors but the interactions of humans with the non-human such as inanimate objects that…

Webb, Darren – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2010
This paper explores Paulo Freire's philosophy of hope. This is significant because, for Freire, it was human hope that rendered education possible, necessary and necessarily political. Like other areas of his thought, however, his reading of hope contained ambiguities and contradictions, and the paper explores these by locating Freire's thought in…

Fitch, E. Frank – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2009
Disability and dependence are integral to the human experience and yet have been largely marginalized or denigrated within Western philosophy. Joining a growing counter narrative from the disability studies movement, several mainstream moral philosophers are helping to redress this error. In this essay, the author discusses ideas from four such…

Vandenberg, Donald – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2009

In this article, the author provides a self-portrait of his intellectual life. He contends that philosophy of education, as educational…

Zhao, Guoping – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2016
This article explores and extends Levinas's ideas of singularity and community as multiplicity and argues that his identification of language and discourse as the means to create ethical communities provides tangible possibilities for rebuilding genuine democracy in a humane world. These ideas help us reimagine school and classroom as communities…

Cavicchi, Elizabeth – Science & Education, 2017
Environments of learning often remain unnoticed and unacknowledged. This study follows a student and myself as we became aware of our local environment at MIT and welcomed that environment as a vibrant contributor to our learning. We met this environment in part through its educational heritage in two centennial anniversaries: John Dewey's 1916…

McCloud, Jennifer; Hurley, Angela – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
The fear of school violence drives "defensive" schooling policies, and it is not unlike the fear that currently supports aggressive foreign policies that sanction drone strikes and the incarceration of suspected terrorists. However, the current measures taken for defense against terrorism are not working, and the same types of…

Louwerse, Max M.; Crossley, Scott A.; Jeuniaux, Patrick – Linguistics and Education: An International Research Journal, 2008
Many corpus linguistic studies have investigated classification of texts into genres and registers, but relatively few of these studies have looked at linguistic features in educational registers. From a pedagogical perspective it is important to determine whether certain linguistic features behave differently across registers within particular…
