Lovat, Terrence; Dally, Kerry; Clement, Neville; Toomey, Ron – Australian Journal of Teacher Education, 2011
Recent research in fields as diverse as educational philosophy and psychology, as well as in the neurobiological sciences, has underlined the need to reassess many of the assumptions that underpin the role of the school, the teacher and education in general. The work of the philosophers such as Carr and Kristjansson could be interpreted as…

Gilead, Tal – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2009
Although since the 1960s human capital theory has played a major role in guiding educational policy, philosophical issues that stem from this development have rarely been discussed. In this article, I critically examine how the idea that human capital should serve as a guide to educational policy making stands in relation to the role assigned to…

Shapiro, Svi – Education and Society, 2017
The struggle for meaning is central to human existence. Beyond material needs meaning offers purpose and hope to our lives. The present context of our existence is now shaped by the powerful influence of global capitalism which disrupts the communal bonds of traditional communities leaving an atomized individualism in its place. In the more…

Null, J. Wesley – Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, 2007
This article draws upon the history of teacher education to provide an introduction to four competing pedagogical philosophies. These four philosophies battled for control over curriculum for teachers during the period from 1890 to 1930. I begin by defining curriculum for teachers to include the liberal, the professional, and the experiential…

Misawa, Koichiro – Educational Studies in Japan: International Yearbook, 2013
There has been no shortage in calls for interdisciplinary enquiry. Yet it is often difficult to know exactly what is intended by this in the fullest sense. What is interdisciplinary enquiry in its totality? If we do not know precisely what it is, how do we bring this kind of enterprise to fruition? The study of education, while being already…

Waks, Leonard J., Ed.; English, Andrea R., Ed. – Cambridge University Press, 2017
John Dewey's "Democracy and Education" is the touchstone for a great deal of modern educational theory. It covers a wide range of themes and issues relating to education, including teaching, learning, educational environments, subject matter, values, and the nature of work and play. This "Handbook" is designed to help experts…

Lilja, Peter; Dahlbeck, Johan – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
Taika Waititi's recent film 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' (2016) portrays the coming-of-age of a young boy, Ricky, in a world with few recognisably responsible adults. While the film does not engage explicitly with formal education, it raises several questions central for understanding education as formation, highlighting the generational aspects of…

Mourad, Roger P. – Educational Forum, 2016
Given that human suffering persists globally on a massive scale, are scholars doing all they ought to be in the pursuit of knowledge? To explore this question, the author analyzes works by Alasdair MacIntyre, Nicholas Maxwell, and Bill Readings. Based on implications derived from their moral critiques of higher education, an alternative, broadened…

Kayode, Bakare Kazeem; Nasirudeen, Abdulwasiu Isiaq; Al-Hasani, Syed Mahbubul Alam – Journal of Education and Practice, 2016
The role of education is to be reflective (about what? Why? and how?) in preserving the civilization identity and human capability of a nation. This is particularly true because education is the cornerstone to building human capability and capacity that can develop a country. A well-formulated educational goal will serve as a moral compass for…

D'Agnese, Vasco – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2017
In this paper, I analyse the Deweyan account of thinking and subject and discuss the educational consequences that follow from such an account. I argue that despite the grouping of thinking and reflective thought that has largely appeared in the interpretation of Deweyan work, Dewey discloses an inescapable uncertainty at the core of human…

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,…

Heaney, Conor – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2015
What is the University today? In this paper, a Foucault and Deleuzo-Guattarian inspired approach is taken. I argue that the University is, today, a site of "neoliberal governmentality," which governs students and academics as sites of human capital. That is, students and academics are governed to self-govern themselves as sites of human…

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…

Gnevasheva, V. A. – Russian Education and Society, 2011
The question of the philosophy of education remains an important topic of active discussion in science, education, and government. There are well-argued demands that the purposes of education be rethought, and recognition of the humanistic essence of education and its huge role in the revitalization of life and in the search for solutions to…
