Tesar, Marek; Arndt, Sonja – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
Archival research can be described as preoccupied with the ontology of data formation and collection in relation to the speaking and writing subject. From its outset, it can be located in the humanistic tradition, which the archival and historical discipline has inherited. Thus, archival research can be described as preoccupied with the ontology…

Somerville, Margaret; Powell, Sarah J. – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
This article addresses the problem of writing the posthuman in educational research. Confronted by our own failures as educational researchers within posthuman and new materialist approaches, it seeks a more radical opening to Lather and St Pierre's question: 'If we give up "human" as separate from non-human, how do we exist? … Are we…

Dixon-Román, Ezekiel – Research in Education, 2017
This article engages the philosophy of science of data, with a focus on the extent to which data are always already imbued with racializations. As Alexander Weheliye has argued, racializations are not to be reduced to race but rather is the sociopolitical process that hierarchizes and differentiates bodies producing the entangled by-products of…

Knight, Hunter – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
In this essay, I analyse Egerton Ryerson's proposed curriculum for the first state-led mass public educational system in Ontario. Egerton Ryerson, Chief Superintendent of Schools in Upper Canada during the wide-scale proliferation of state schooling across Turtle Island, produced proposals for "universal" common schools, as well as…

Wharram, C. C. – Educational Theory, 2014
In this essay C. C. Wharram argues that Terence's concept of translation as a form of "contamination" anticipates recent developments in philosophy, ecology, and translation studies. Placing these divergent fields of inquiry into dialogue enables us read Terence's well-known statement "I am a human being--I deem nothing…

Laverty, Megan Jane – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2014
In this essay, I demonstrate the value of the Bildungsroman for philosophy of education on the grounds that these narratives raise and explore educational questions. I focus on a short story in the Bildungsroman tradition, Thomas Hardy's "A Mere Interlude". This story describes the maturation of its heroine by narrating a series of…

MacAllister, James – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2014
In this article I discuss the philosophy of John MacMurray, and in particular, his little-examined writings on discipline and emotion education. It is argued that discipline is a vital element in the emotion education MacMurray thought central to learning to be human, because for him it takes concerted effort to overcome the human tendency toward…

Lipowicz, Markus – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
Transhumanism promotes the application of emerging technologies and genetics in order to overcome the physical and cognitive limitations of the human species. In this article, the main question to be considered is the following: is Nietzsche's notion of educational self-overcoming compatible with the idea of biotechnological self-enhancement?…

Horn, Christoph – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2018
Werner Jaeger (1888-1961) was at his time the most brilliant and the most influential German classicist. His most important project was a tripartite study that he finally published under the title of "Paideia. Die Formung des griechischen Menschen" (1933-1947). "Paideia" was much more than a detailed scholarly book on pedagogy…

Lemberger, Matthew E. – Journal of Humanistic Counseling, 2012
In his extension of the humanistic vision, Hansen (2012) recommends that counseling practitioners and scholars adopt operations that are consistent with his definition of a multiple-perspective philosophy. Alternatively, the author of this article believes that Hansen has reduced the capacity of the human to interpret meaning through quantitative…

Zhao, Guoping – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2015
Biesta has suggested that education after humanism should be interested in existence, not essence, in what the subject can do, not in what the subject is--the truth about the subject--and this is the way inspired by Foucault and Levinas. In this article, I analyze Foucault's alleged deconstruction and reconfiguration of the subject and Levinas'…

Tan, Charlene – Oxford Review of Education, 2018
This paper compares the educational thought of Paulo Freire and Confucius on what it means to be more fully human. Both Freire and Confucius object to the dehumanisation of human beings through the banking concept of education and other oppressive practices. They argue for the ontological vocation of becoming more fully human through humanisation…

Hrachovec, Herbert – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2018
Platonic "paideia" is a mainstream concept in traditional philosophy and humanistic circles generally. It is closely connected with social progress brought about by the dynamics of enlightenment and self-fulfillment, symbolized by the allegory of the cave. The main contention of this paper is that the philosophical grammar of this simile…

Stables, Andrew – Educational Theory, 2017
In this essay, Andrew Stables notes that philosophies such as existentialism, humanism, and environmentalism come in either exploratory or active forms: that is, one can study the nature of existence or the human, or one can ascribe to a way of life in an attempt to improve the world. Among the major influences on active environmentalist thought…

Snaza, Nathan – Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy, 2017
This article is a response to Hugo Letiche's "Bewildering Pedagogy," an extended critique of many of Snaza's published texts. In it, Snaza selected four important points of disagreement and elaborated four tensions between Letiche's claims and his own present thinking--tensions that all turn on ontological and epistemological axioms…
