Oral, Sevket Benhur – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
Education as a domain of conceptual activity and a field of scientific/scholarly research needs to address the movement from the traumatized subject to subject-as-trauma. This movement and the concomitant conceptual shift in how we ought to understand the subject correspond, in the domain of education, to the "radicalization" of what…

Pedro Arrupe was concerned about the growing attitude in which the vocation of humankind is understood as making oneself the centre of the universe, fearing that it has infiltrated into education and schools. Consequently, he set out to counteract this egoistic mindset by propounding an approach to education rooted in justice tempered with faith,…

Hoveid, Marit Honerod; Hoveid, Halvor – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2009
When you enrol as a student you are assigned a "place" in education. This assignment will gradually imply an assessment of you as a human being. We argue that these are processes taking place in educational practice. In our orientation in educational research an orientation towards a theory of action has been inspired by the French philosopher…

Wolbert, Lynne S.; De Ruyter, Doret J.; Schinkel, Anders – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
In this article we defend the claim that theory on education for flourishing should also include nonideal theory. We observe that recent theory on education for flourishing takes the ideal of flourishing as a starting and central point of the theory, and should be seen as ideal theory. While this serves a purpose, the practical value of ideal…

Dunlap, Peter T. – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2012
In this paper I explore the shared interest of John Dewey and Carl Jung in the developmental continuity between biological, psychological, and cultural phenomena. Like other first generation psychological theorists, Dewey and Jung thought that psychology could be used to deepen our understanding of this continuity and thus gain a degree of control…

Leopold, David – Oxford Review of Education, 2011
The aims of education, and the appropriate means of realising them, are a recurring preoccupation of utopian authors. The utopian socialists Robert Owen (1771-1858) and Charles Fourier (1772-1837) both place human nature at the core of their educational views, and both see education as central to their wider objective of social and political…

Biesta, Gert – European Educational Research Journal, 2015
In this paper I focus on a split within the field of educational research between those who approach education as an activity or practice governed by "cause-effect" relationships and those who see education as a human event of communication, meaning making and interpretation. Rather than just arguing against the former and in favour of…

Robottom, Ian – Research in Science Education, 2012
In the past decade, we have seen the well-established discourse of environmental education (EE) supplanted by that of education for sustainability (EfS). In some ways this change in terminology has been no more than a slogan change, with the actual educational practices associated with EfS little changed from those qualified by EE (Campbell and…
