Brady, Alison M. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
Current conceptions of accountability imply that, in order for teachers to be able to hold themselves to account, they need first to have cultivated certain 'professional dispositions'. But these conceptions fail to acknowledge the extent to which teachers are first and foremost accountable 'as such'. For the early existentialist thought of the…

Sevilla-Liu, Anton – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
What does it mean to educate for self-awareness? How does this fit within education, with its other objectives, and other learning processes? These are key questions for more comprehensive versions of the mindful education movement. In order to provide some responses to these questions from a cohesive philosophical position, this article examines…

Provost, Mickaëlle – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
The aim of this paper is to understand "whiteness" as a political category which organizes ordinary experience. I will use a phenomenological framework in order to denaturalize the white experience and make it a possible object of transformation and education. A description of "whiteness" as a category of experience has…

Laugier, Sandra – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
Stanley Cavell was the first to account for the transformation of theory and criticism brought about by reflection on popular culture and its 'ordinary' objects, such as so-called mainstream cinema. However, Cavell is less concerned with reversing artistic hierarchies than with the self-transformation required by our encounters with new…

Suissa, Judith; Sullivan, Alice – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
Philosophical arguments regarding academic freedom can sometimes appear removed from the real conflicts playing out in contemporary universities. This paper focusses on a set of issues at the front line of these conflicts, namely, questions regarding sex, gender and gender identity. We document the ways in which the work of academics has been…

Stolz, Steven A. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
In this essay, I briefly outline Nietzsche's doctrine of the eternal recurrence that has implications for education, and life in general; and, lastly, I argue that from an educational point of view, Nietzsche's doctrine of the eternal recurrence is best viewed as the great cultivating thought that has radical ramifications for any project of…

Dhingra, Neil; Scribner, Campbell – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
We argue that Alasdair MacIntyre's description of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor as an exemplar of practical reasoning, who envisions the contextual and consensual balancing of different goods according to the further good of the American social order, enables a reinterpretation of O'Connor's majority opinion in "Grutter v. Bollinger," the…

Marley-Payne, Jack – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
This paper evaluates how our understanding of natural talent affects questions of educational justice. We argue that education debates currently suffer from a naïve understanding of 'nature versus nurture' and present a more rigorous approach that allows us to see what is required for fair treatment of students. As it stands, there is controversy…

Aagaard, Jesper – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
This article draws on the work of Michel Foucault to develop a concept of "Bildung" for our digital times. It first shows how Foucault's concept of disciplinary power challenges the traditional "Bildung"-ideal of autonomy. It then goes on to elaborate Foucault's concepts of power, freedom and self-practices, which can all be…

Jones, Alexander H. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
Greed and power have morphed into forms of capitalism unaddressed from a philosophical, moral or educative framework. This article seeks to address this important gap in the literature by first outlining how the financialisation of capital constitutes the new educational subject in primary, secondary and tertiary school. The author establishes how…

Gibbs, Alexis; O'Brien, Elizabeth – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
In this paper we consider some of the problems inherent in the attempt to define and circumscribe an exclusively 'educational love', as presented by Joris Vlieghe and Piotr Zamojski in a recent paper for this journal. In seeking to move beyond the confusing interpersonal relations involved in student-centred discourses on teaching, the authors aim…

Horowski, Jaroslaw – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
The analyses undertaken in this article refer to the harm experienced in close relationships, where the lack of forgiveness and the breakdown in the relationship can be a source of additional suffering for the victim. Referring to the discussion conducted in the "Journal of Philosophy of Education" in the years 2002-2003, I assume that…

Murphy, Michael P. A. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
One outcome of the increasing interest from philosophy of education circles in the work of Giorgio Agamben has been the possibility of apparently small alterations to enact a radical emancipatory change. This 'weak utopianism' (Lewis, 2013) found in Agamben's work means that traditionally radical changes are viewed with skepticism, as grand…

The main aim of this paper is to discuss some moral implications of cognitive doping in education. In this context, the term 'cognitive doping' refers to the use of cognitive enhancing drugs--such as Ritalin--among students in order to improve their cognitive functions and educational performance on college exams. Cognitive doping raises not only…

This article examines approaches to education developed by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and his contemporary and close friend, Friedrich Niethammer, two thinkers who significantly contributed to pedagogy. The aim is not only to compare both thinkers' ideas concerning education, analysing the similarities and the differences between their…
