Crioni, Renato; Gomes, Luiz Roberto; Zuin, Antônio Álvaro Soares – Policy Futures in Education, 2015
The extensive work of Habermas's intellectual legacy is comparable to the depth and complexity of his reflections. The debates among thinkers close to the conclusions of Adorno and Horkheimer and the mature positions of Habermas are also known. However, despite the marked differences, both of them seem to share a common interpretation: that…

Collin, Ross – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
This article examines a theory of "weak humanism" that says (1) secondary English classes should focus on personal development and culture and (2) English classes should deliver economic benefits indirectly, i.e. as knock-on effects of studying the personal and the cultural. Economic benefits are defined here as knowledge/skills students…

Pais, Alexandre – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2019
In my previous work, I criticised studies within the sociopolitical turn for disavowing a comprehension of schools as places of capitalist production.
