Hinchliffe, Geoffrey – Ethics and Education, 2020
This paper argues that the idea of intrinsic worth encompasses all human beings, no matter how they are circumstanced. This concept needs to be understood transcendentally, not prescriptively. These terms are explained, with particular reference to Kant. It also argues that discourses of identity and recognition can best be understood through the…

Hanna, Gila; Larvor, Brendan – ZDM: Mathematics Education, 2020
It is commonplace in the educational literature on mathematical practice to argue for a general conclusion from isolated quotations from famous mathematicians. In this paper, we supply a critique of this mode of inference. We review empirical results that show the diversity and instability of mathematicians' opinions on mathematical practice.…

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'…

Cole, David R. – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2019
The philosophy of Gilles Deleuze has become popular in recent moves to embed approaches such as the new materialist and the posthuman in environmental education. Certainly, a newfound respect for the material universe, including the comprehension of the human place in it, and the tendency to a posthuman theoretical position, are both important…

Gearon, Liam – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
This article argues that Wells' science fiction and subsequent political engagements are a continuum expressed by an imperative: that human history is held 'between education and catastrophe'. The life and work of a politically unfashionable but still popular writer of science fiction are also a masterclass in establishing the critical importance…

Di, Xu – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2020
Consciousness is a natural and integral part of human beings that is at the core of our physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual functions throughout our lives. However, we tend to be too occupied with or distracted by the details of our daily existence to be fully aware of our own consciousness. More often than not, we are engaged in the…

Yang, Fan; Lin, Jing; Culham, Thomas – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
For decades, a review of environmental education initiatives in and beyond schools indicates that many of them were implemented from an anthropocentric perspective. The rationale behind them is often that we must not destroy the environment because doing so is harmful for ourselves, human beings. One striking feature of the various forms of…

Ambrossi, Paul Alexandra – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The use of photography representing human distress in higher education warrants moral attention, owing to the imperative that we avoid objectifying the vulnerable communities who are often represented in those images. Assuming the fundamental Kantian precept that we should always treat others as ends and never merely as means, I extend this…

This article examines the concept of dialogue in the philosophy of Emmanuel Lévinas, with a focus on the context of education. Its aim is to create a conversation between the Lévinasian theory and the theories of other philosophers, especially Martin Buber, in an effort to highlight the ethical significance that Lévinas assigns to the act of…
