Pirrie, Anne – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2015
This article offers a critique of the notion of "capacity building" in educational theory. Are the intentions behind the latter enterprise as benign and altruistic as they first appear?

Operating under the notion that ontologically grounded methodologies are susceptible to missing…

Aldridge, David – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2014
Pádraig Hogan has argued for a powerful conception of education as epiphany that is illuminated by the work of Heidegger and Joyce. But what are we to make of Stephen Dedalus' intention (pretension?) to "Remember your epiphanies"? Developing the phenomenological Erinnerungsversuch or "essay in memory" of David Farrell…
