An Arendtian Perspective on Inclusive Education: Towards a Reimagined Vocabulary
Korsgaard, Morten Timmermann
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v20 n9 p934-945 2016
Inclusive education currently appears to be undergoing a crisis and re-examination. This paper presents a new approach to thinking about inclusiveness in the school context. Many positions within inclusive education seem to take political, social and ethical perspectives as a starting point, which has allowed inclusive movements and initiatives around the world to succumb to neo-liberal policy-making and has neglected the development of an educational vocabulary that is theoretically and conceptually appropriate for confronting teachers' central concerns regarding inclusive practices. The concepts of "suspension," "bearing with strangers" and "enlarged thought" inspired by Hannah Arendt provide a basis for a re-imagining of inclusive education and for outlining a future school in which inclusiveness is embedded in the very way we think and position ourselves as teachers and pupils.
