Williams, Emma Louise – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
This paper examines David Bakhurst's attempt to provide a picture of 'the kinds of beings we are' that is 'more realistic' than rationalism. I argue that there is much that is rich and compelling in Bakhurst's account. Yet I also question whether there are ways in which it could be taken further. I introduce the discussion by exploring Bakhurst's…

Stolz, Steven A. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
In this essay I intentionally employ Nietzsche's genealogical method as a means to critique the complex concept of 'good' teaching, and at the same time reconstitute 'good' teaching in a form that is radically different from contemporary accounts. In order to do this, I start out by undertaking a genealogical analysis to both reveal the…

Foreman-Peck, Lorraine; Heilbronn, Ruth – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
This paper presents a view of action research (AR) as a valuable way in which teachers can pose fertile questions and engage in inquiry with transformative possibilities. This counters claims of its being at best a sterile method of teacher research and at worst a perilous trap for teachers. Chris Higgins has argued that AR has lost its original…

Kennedy, David – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
This paper traces the changing status of the school as a counter culture in the anthropological and historical literature, in particular from the moment when compulsory mass schooling assumed the function of ideological state apparatus in the post-revolutionary 19th century West. It then focuses attention on what may be called the New School,…

Marples, Roger – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
The aim of this article is to demonstrate the respects in which private schools are unfair, and why they pose a threat to the well-being of not only those who are excluded on financial grounds, but to democratic equality and social cohesion in general. The shortcomings associated with relying on a form of educational provision that is merely…

Olsson, Anna-Lova – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
Higher education as a personal, intellectual and moral cultivation is a longstanding ideal that is constantly challenged by the view that education is merely the development of specific skills for vocational and personal success. Much research argues that the latter understanding makes education a technical affair that creates an egocentric…

Luntley, Michael – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
In this paper I outline an answer to the following question: What are the abilities that make you the sort of subject who can learn, who can acquire new concepts, new skills? There are many traits that matter in providing an answer. But I want to suggest that the ability for creative and imaginative engagement with and sustenance of the playful…

Felder, Franziska – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
In recent years inclusion has become one of the most dominant values and objectives in education. However, there is still considerable disagreement concerning the theoretical concept of inclusion and its normative implications. This article suggests an understanding of inclusion that first differentiates analytically between societal and communal…

Koskinen, Heikki J. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
Contemporary recognition theory based on Axel Honneth's foundational work is a well-established research programme that is highly relevant also for philosophy of education. However, some of Honneth's own relatively recent writings on pathologies of recognition, and especially on the notion of antecedent recognition threaten to undermine the…

Yacek, Douglas – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
How should we teach controversial issues? And which issues should we teach as controversies? In this paper, I argue that educators should heed what I call a 'psychological condition' in their practical efforts to address these questions. In defending this claim, I engage with the various decision criteria that have been advanced in the…

Italia, Salvatore – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2017
A realist approach to learning is what I propose here. This is based on a non-epistemic dimension whose presence is a necessary assumption for a concept of learning of a life-world as complementary to learning within a life-world. I develop my approach in opposition to Jürgen Habermas' pragmatic approach, which seems to lack of something from a…

Miller, Alistair – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2017
The metaphysical ethics of Levinas appeals to many philosophers of education because it seems to promise ethics and social justice without recourse to moral norms, "totalising" political systems or religious belief. However, the notion that the subject can be detached from its worldly being--that one can posit a primordial metaphysical…

Schinkel, Anders – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2017
That wonder is educationally important will strike many people as obvious. And in a way it is obvious, because being capable of experiencing wonder implies an openness to (novel) experience and seems naturally allied to intrinsic educational motivation, an eagerness to inquire, a desire to understand, and also to a willingness to suspend judgement…

Hinchliffe, Geoffrey – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2017
This paper takes as its starting point Kant's analysis of freedom in the Critique of Pure Reason. From this analysis, two different types of freedom are discerned, formative and instrumental freedom. The paper suggests that much of what passes for the pedagogy of learning in UK universities takes the form of an instrumental freedom. This, however,…

Mejía, Andrés; Montoya, Sylvia Eugenia – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2017
For millennia it has been discussed whether literature appropriately can or should be used in education for a moral purpose. Taking as a premise that it can actually be educative and not merely moralising, we tackle the case made against such use, based on the claim that it would be perverting the aesthetic nature of literature as a form of art,…
