Giada Fratantonio – Educational Theory, 2024
Can epistemic paternalistic practices make us better epistemic agents? While a satisfying answer to this question will ultimately rest at least partly on empirical findings, considering the epistemological discussion on evidence, knowledge, and epistemic virtues can be insightful. In this paper, Giada Fratantonio argues that we have theoretical…

David Coady – Educational Theory, 2024
It is widely believed that we are facing a problem, even a crisis, caused by so-called "echo chambers" and "filter bubbles." Here, David Coady argues that this belief is mistaken. There is no such problem, and we should refrain from using these neologisms altogether. They serve no useful purpose, since there is nothing we can…

Ian Normile – Educational Theory, 2024
Ian Normile begins this study from the premise that critical thinking is often conceptualized and practiced in problematically narrow and instrumentalized ways.

Rachel Wahl – Educational Theory, 2024
This article draws on the philosophical work on dialogic rationality offered by Charles Taylor as well as qualitative studies of dialogues between politically opposed college students to argue that these conversations succeed as tools of democracy precisely because they fail as interventions. That is, the democratic strength of such dialogue is…

Seamus Mulryan – Educational Theory, 2024
In this article, Seamus Mulryan contends that dialogue about questions that matter to a body politic require the ethical virtue of courage, which is distinct from the virtue of intellectual humility, and this is of central importance in the education of members of a pluralist society. Mulryan begins with Robert Kunzman's theory of Ethical Dialogue…

This article aims to serve as an introductory discussion of the European Continental tradition of pedagogics, specifically from a North American perspective.

Leung, Wing Sze – Educational Theory, 2023
Scholarly accounts of the training of pity in Jean-Jacques Rousseau's "Emile" focus on how Emile's tutor activates the psychological mechanisms necessary for the feeling of pity in book 4 of the text. This account is inadequate, for it fails to show how Emile acquires the evaluative ability to make the judgment about who deserves pity as…

The approach that he defends is an unrestricted pairing of the Epistemic Criterion and of the Momentousness Criterion. On the Epistemic Criterion, public schooling should align students' credence with…

Wenneborg, Emily G. – Educational Theory, 2023
Nearly everyone recognizes the fact of deep pluralism: it is hard to deny that contemporary America is characterized by widespread diversity of beliefs, practices, and values. We disagree, not on this reality, but on the way we should respond to the pluralism around us. In this paper, Emily G. Wenneborg discusses one of the most common responses…

Friesen, Norm; Su, Hanno – Educational Theory, 2023
What is pedagogy, exactly? "Merriam-Webster" defines it simply as "the art, science, or profession of teaching." In contemporary academic discourse, however, pedagogy is generally left undefined -- with its apparent implicit meanings ranging anywhere from a specific "model for teaching" (e.g., behaviorist or…

Hand, Michael – Educational Theory, 2023
Schools plausibly have a role to play in countering radicalization by taking steps to prevent the acquisition of extremist beliefs, dispositions, and attitudes. A core component of the extremist mindset is aversion to compromise. Michael Hand inquires here into the possibility, desirability, and means of educating against this attitude. He argues…
