Gardiner, Rita A. – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2016
Hannah Arendt's work is gaining increasing recognition in educational administration. But less has been written about her as an educator, colleague, and provocateur. Here, I explore the lasting impressions that Arendt had on former students, colleagues, and friends. This exploration is conducted through the lens of Arendtian narrative inquiry. For…

Giaever, Katrine; Jones, Liz – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2017
The aim of this paper is to consider whether Hannah Arendt's (1996) [Arendt, H. (1958/1998). "Vita Activa. The Human Condition." Chicago: University of Chicago] concept of "public space" is a potentially useful and creative way of thinking about aspects of Muslim children's experiences within the context of education. Following…

Nixon, Jon – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2016
This paper provides an introduction to the enduring friendship between Hannah Arendt and Karl Jaspers.

Lilja, Peter – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
For a long time, one of the most important tasks for education in liberal democracies has been to foster the next generation in core democratic values in order to prepare them for future political responsibilities. In spite of this, general trust in the liberal democratic system is in rapid decline. In this paper, the tension between the ambitions…

This article is an academic commentary on the concept of sociology of education. The authors have ventured through the lens of Hannah Arendt's "The Human Condition" and discuss its impact might have had if the corresponding mode of education and pedagogy be carried out in reality according to what Arendt had inspired her readers. A cross…

Korsgaard, Morten Timmermann – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
In this paper, the notion of pearl diving as a metaphor for historical methodology is explored as a possible conceptual contribution to pedagogical thinking and practice. Pearl diving in the thinking of Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin refers to a process of bringing to life and coming to terms with a fragmented past, and requires of the thinker…

van Kessel, Cathryn – Journal of International Social Studies, 2018
Genocide education would benefit from a renewed focus on how ordinary people perpetuate atrocities more so than villains. Ordinary evil is often understood via Hannah Arendt's political theory, which explains how people can contribute thoughtlessly to genocide. This "banality of evil" explains an important aspect of human behavior,…

Gordon, Mordechai – Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, 2015
This essay critically examines the underlying assumptions about freedom and democracy at the basis of those like the NRA who argue that the United States does not have a gun problem and that the second amendment protects citizens' rights to own any gun they wish. Inspired by Hannah Arendt's political philosophy, the author first discusses three…

Lee, Mun Yee – Canadian Review of Art Education: Research and Issues, 2011
Memories of our schooling and teaching experiences shape our curriculum and pedagogical decision-making process in art education when we become teachers and teacher educators. In this paper, using Hannah Arendt's Actor-Spectator Theory, I engage in retrospective critical introspection of my practices as an art teacher and curriculum developer in…

Altorf, Hannah Marije – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2019
This article starts from the observation that Socratic dialogues in the Nelson-Heckmann tradition can create a sense of belonging or community among participants. This observation has led me to the current argument that Socratic dialogue offers an alternative to more prominent forms of conversation, which I have called 'discussion' and 'discourse…

Schutz, Aaron; Sandy, Marie G. – Educational Theory, 2015
Hannah Arendt's essays about the 1957 crisis over efforts of a group of youth, the "Little Rock Nine," to desegregate a high school in Little Rock, Arkansas, reveal a tension in her vision of the "public." In this article Aaron Schutz and Marie Sandy look closely at the experiences of the youth desegregating the school,…

Kreber, Carolin – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2016
Recent reform initiatives calling for "civic" ("public-good" or "democratic") professionalism can be seen as a response to the widely reported decline in public trust in the professions and an attempt to partially remedy this problem through a more publically engaged professionalism. The author draws on the political…

Monig, Julia Maria – Ethics and Education, 2012
In this paper, I try to argue why it is worth turning to Hannah Arendt when reflecting on education. I am exploring her political theory in "The Human Condition" which, with the anthropologic category of natality, seems to offer an interesting approach for democratic education. Apparently everyone can participate in politics or even…
