Kwak, Duck-Joo – Educational Theory, 2015
In this essay, Duck-Joo Kwak draws on Hannah Arendt's concept of judgment in exploring what it means to teach the humanities as a form of values education in a postmetaphysical age. Arendt's concept of judgment is closely related to Ciceronian humanism, which is concerned with the wisdom to choose one's company while appreciating this pursuit…

Mackler, Stephanie – Teachers College Record, 2010
Background/Context: In 1958, Hannah Arendt wrote "The Crisis in Education," arguing that schools should not be used for political purposes and should instead introduce children to what she calls "the world." The world, for Arendt, comprises the artifacts, ideas, values, and interactions that connect people together. In that same year, she…

Lange, Lis – Perspectives in Education, 2012
Taking as its point of departure Ahier's location of the problem of citizenship in the context of the changes that globalisation and neo-liberalism have brought about in higher education, this article focuses on the conceptual preconditions that need to underpin the idea of "teaching" citizenship through the university curriculum. The…

Varkoy, Oivind – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2017
The point of departure in this article is the hegemony of technical rationality when it comes to the justification of music education. This is considered as an example of uniformity, sameness, and homogeneity, or worse, simplicity and naivety--or even worse, a sweet innocence--regarding understanding and thoughts about life, society, and culture…

van Kessel, Cathryn; Crowley, Ryan M. – Theory and Research in Social Education, 2017
Villainification is the process of creating single actors as the faces of systemic harm, with those hyperindividualized villains losing their ordinary characteristics. Like heroification, there is a simplified portrayal of historical actors, but villainification has particularly harmful consequences. We suggest that villainification obscures the…

Bergdahl, Lovisa; Langmann, Elisabet – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2017
In a time of cultural pluralism and legitimation crisis (Habermas), there is an increasing uncertainty among teachers in Sweden about with what right they are fostering other people's children. What does it mean to teach "common values" to the coming generation? How do teachers find legitimacy and authority for this endeavour, not as…

Gunter, Helen M.; McGinity, Ruth – Research Papers in Education, 2014
Our investigations into the politics of the Academies Programme in England have generated thinking that draws on data about the conversion process from two projects. We engage with an early City Academy that replaced two "failing" schools, and a recent Academy that replaced a "successful" high school. We deploy Hannah Arendt's…

This essay takes up John White's argument for an engagement and collaboration of philosophy of education with other disciplines, and in particular with other forms of educational research. It examines the benefits and risks of "situated" or "embedded" philosophy as well as Hannah Arendt's claims about the separation of…

Adami, Rebecca – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2014
Human Rights Education (HRE) has traditionally been articulated in terms of cultivating better citizens or world citizens. The main preoccupation in this strand of HRE has been that of bridging a gap between universal notions of a human rights subject and the actual locality and particular narratives in which students are enmeshed. This…

Andersson, Erik; Olson, Maria – Journal of Social Science Education, 2014
In this article we argue that young people's political participation in the social media can be considered "public pedagogy". The argument builds on a previous empirical analysis of a Swedish net community called Black Heart. Theoretically, the article is based on a particular notion of public pedagogy, education and Hannah Arendt's…

Tosas, Mar Rosàs – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
In this paper we claim educational leadership as an autonomous discipline whose goals and strategies should not mirror those typical of business and political leadership. In order to define the aims proper to educational leadership we question three common assumptions of what it is supposed to carry out. First, we turn to Hannah Arendt and her…

Spector, Hannah – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2016
The aim of this paper is to consider the ways in which Arendt's writings on totalitarianism act as a warning sign for political and miseducational circumstances in the USA. Because the term totalitarianism has been used imprudently (largely in the mass media) to express repressive conditions in so-called models of democracy, this paper seeks to…

Wassrin, Maria – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2016
This article explores the possibility of conceiving preschool music activities as a way of forming spaces of participation with society's youngest. The discussion draws on Hannah Arendt's ([1958] 1998) definition of public spheres, and the argumentation is closely linked to an empirical example from musicking events with 1-3 year olds in a…

Thoeun, Chanthou – Multicultural Education, 2013
In this article, the author contends that there is by now a devastating catalogue of evidence revealing the depth and breadth of corporate-sponsored, government-sanctioned acts of violence against the environment across the globe. British Petroleum's (BP) oil spill, for instance, is a testament to large-scale catastrophic ecological damages…
