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…

Heilbronn, Ruth – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
The article examines what Dewey means by 'growth,' why it is significant and why it should concern us as educators. A metric use of 'growth' is current, as in economic discourse as Gross National Product (GNP), or audited reporting on examination results to produce international achievement data. Dewey's principle of growth focuses on the…

Saito, Naoko – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
Our age is characterized by diverse political emotions, sometimes overt and sometimes hidden. They involve such diverse aspects of human life as religious and ethnic tensions, homelessness and immigrancy, and divisions of identity. Anxieties of inclusion can be felt by those seeking to enter a society, by those inside concerned, say, about…

Shim, Jenna Min – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
This paper grapples with the idea that challenging racism in teacher education opens the landscape of racial melancholia by psychoanalytically exploring the author's affective reaction to white teacher candidates' resistance. Drawing on critical multicultural education classes at a university in a mid-Western rural state in the US, the author, an…

Hildebrand, David L. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
The central objective of Dewey's Democracy and Education is to explain 'what is needed to live a meaningful life and how can education contribute?' While most acquainted with Dewey's educational philosophy know that 'experience' plays a central role, the role of 'situations' may be less familiar or understood. This essay explains why 'situation'…

D'Agnese, Vasco – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2018
In my paper, I attempt to accomplish a twofold task: first, to argue that in order to understand important features of Deweyan work, a thorough analysis of the roles that uncertainty, courage and imagination play in Deweyan thought is required. Second, based on such an analysis, I try to show that such features are essential for education to…
