Le Grange, Lesley – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2018
This article explores the influence of Spinozism on the deep ecology movement (DEM) and on new materialism. It questions the stance of supporters of the DEM because their ecosophies unwittingly anthropomorphise the more-than-human-world. It suggests that instead of humanising the 'natural' world, morality should be naturalised, that is, that the…

White, John – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Until recently teacher education in England has always contained a 'philosophical' element -- to do with what education is for in the light of human nature. The paper traces its history since 1839, through inspirational approaches -- based first on religion and later on psychology -- to the critical approach of R S Peters and his colleagues in the…

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…

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…

Mayes, Eve; Keddie, Amanda; Moss, Julianne; Rawolle, Shaun; Paatsch, Louise; Kelly, Merinda – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
Inequalities have historically been conceptualised and empirically explored with primary reference to the human. Both measurements of educational inequalities through the production of data about students, teachers and schools, and ethnographic explorations of inequalities in the spoken accounts of human actors in schools can elide affective…

D'Olimpio, Laura; Teschers, Christoph – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2017

In this article we argue that through dramaturgical play in combination with pedagogical tools such as the Community of Inquiry, in the tradition of Philosophy for Children (P4C), students can creatively think, reflect and be more aware of the…

Johnson, Tyler G. – Quest, 2013
The current philosophical paradigm in higher education, where theory transcends practice, consigns physical education to the bottom of a hierarchy of educational content (Kretchmar, 2005).

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…

The flow of futurism believes that everything we think about and do today is for the future. So, all the actions we will take must have an impact on the welfare of the future. Therefore, fostering a healthy intellectual and spiritual power through proper education will rebuild human beings with the right values and norms for the sake of the…
