Brady, Alison M. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
This paper discusses the ways in which the teacher is recognised through the formulation of evaluation frameworks which encompass criteria for so-called effective teaching and, by extension, effective learning. It argues that the emphasis on that which is 'effective', and therefore measurable, is symptomatic of an overly technicist understanding…

Fennell, Jon M. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
In Chapter V of his autobiography, John Stuart Mill describes the 'crisis in my mental history' that cast this brilliant mind into profound gloom at age 20. Mill makes clear that his plight had everything to do with the extraordinary analytical and critical education imparted to him by his father. That which prompts Mill's deep distress, as well…

Korsgaard, Morten Timmermann – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The discussion of the power of the teacher's voice is raging again in light of the standardisation of education and the emergence of testing as the new regime of truth in educational processes. In confrontation with this paradigm, Jasinki and Lewis have raised pertinent questions regarding the role of language and the voice of the teacher. By…

Ambrossi, Paul Alexandra – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The use of photography representing human distress in higher education warrants moral attention, owing to the imperative that we avoid objectifying the vulnerable communities who are often represented in those images. Assuming the fundamental Kantian precept that we should always treat others as ends and never merely as means, I extend this…

Pirrie, Anne; Manum, Kari; Necib, Saif Eddine – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
This article offers a critique of the manner in which doctoral supervision is conceptualised in a higher education system dominated by the market order. The authors consider the process of research supervision as an experience held in common, as a way of discovering the world together rather than as the fulfilment of discrete roles within a…

Dahlbeck, Johan – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
Saul Smilansky's Illusionism suggests that some false beliefs are important enough to warrant the indefinite perpetuation of illusions in order to protect the larger moral community from breaking down. In this article I suggest that this position actualises an old educational paradox where education is expected to protect the common moral…

Martin, Christopher – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
How should a liberal democratic society value knowledge and understanding, and does this valuation inform how we ought to reason about the justice of our educational institutions? In scholarly and public discourse, it is orthodox to argue that because educational institutions bring about various goods--goods of character such as wellbeing or…

Bellolio, Cristobal – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
In the US and elsewhere, creationist groups have challenged the mandatory science curriculum because it introduces the theory of evolution as the true story of biodiversity. This paper disaggregates this challenge in two distinctive levels. On the substantive level, creationists claim that Darwinian evolution is not value-neutral, as most…

Sarajlic, Eldar – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
This article evaluates two most popular normative theories about the reproduction of cultural values through children from the perspective of self-knowledge: Brighouse and Swift's parent-child relationship argument and Clayton's public reason argument. I suggest that while plausible on some grounds, these arguments struggle to accommodate the…

Derry, Jan – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
Cognitive load theory has challenged contemporary approaches to teaching by arguing that they are ineffective because of a neglect of the psychology underpinning learning and, specifically, the high demand placed on working memory. This paper challenges the presuppositions involved not only in arguments for guided instruction by those supporting…

Stern, Julian; Walejko, Malgorzata – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
This article proposes a distinct role for solitude in education, specifically as a means of promoting self-realisation. Solitude is understood as a willed disengagement, as described by Koch, and its relationship to loneliness and to silence is explained. Notwithstanding a degree of disengagement, solitude can be and often is experienced as…

Yacek, Douglas; Ijaz, Kailum – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The term 'transformation' and its cognates can be found appended to almost every key term in the contemporary educational lexicon. In educational psychology, teachers are urged to adopt the methods of 'transformational teaching'. In adult education, the theory of 'transformative learning' defines the current research paradigm. Social justice…

Simoni, Cristian – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The central aim of this paper is to explore a kind of rationality that seeks to do justice to educational practice: to our understanding of its complexities and to its actual conduct. The enquiry begins with a review of the limits of standardising procedures, including their inbuilt technicist bias, which are increasingly dominant in educational…

Conroy, James – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
This essay critiques the infection of the curriculum with the concerns of the adult political community, treating successive generations of children as if they were responsible for changing the world and that education was the vehicle. Such impulses are, in part, the result of a failure to consider childhood as a particular, liminal, space rather…

Mertel, Kurt C. M. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
In this paper, I defend the viability and relevance of Heidegger's philosophy of technology and consider its emancipatory potential in the field of education. First, I situate Heidegger's philosophy of technology within the broader emancipatory project of his early work--the fundamental ontology of Being and Time--and emphasise the role of…
