Warnick, Bryan; Yacek, Douglas; Robinson, Shannon – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Being responsive to the experiences, ideas, and stories of others is an essential trait for democratic citizens. Responsiveness promotes the general welfare, shows respect for others, and allows for what Tony Laden (2012) has called the social practice of reasoning. Political theorists have shown how responsiveness is a middle ground between…

Colgan, Andrew D. – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Many symposia and special journal issues over the last several decades have been devoted to concerns about the decline of philosophy in teacher education programs.

Siegel, Harvey – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
This comment is in response to Andrew D. Colgan's article in a previous issue of the journal. While the author finds Colgan's institutional analysis compelling and agrees his proposed "deinstitutionalizing solutions" of reviving teacher culture and return teacher education preparation to teachers' colleges. He proposes a third remedy,…

Tanchuk, Nicolas; Kruse, Marc; McDonough, Kevin – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
In Canada, several universities have recently implemented course requirements in Indigenous studies as a condition of graduation, while others are considering following suit.

Martin, Christopher – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Does the liberal state have a role in helping mature citizens make worthwhile educational choices? The question has clear relevance for the aims of higher education in a liberal democratic society. As systems of higher education internationalize, it has become difficult for liberal states to steer higher education policy in directions that serve…

McCowan, Tristan – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
The idea of the "developmental university" was popularised on the African continent in the post-independence period, but has recently returned to view on account of the positioning of the university in the newly agreed United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The developmental model is characterised by service to society,…

Kotzee, Ben – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
In this paper, I investigate two clashing perspectives regarding the good of the university: a socioeconomic and an epistemic perspective. I position current writing on the university in the philosophy of education as being largely socio-economic and contrast this view to an earlier tradition of writing about the university that I position as…

Allen, Ansgar – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2017
The republication of Nietzsche's lectures "On the Future of Our Educational Institutions" invites reconsideration of Nietzsche's thought on education. Though there is much in these lectures that might appeal to those struggling for the future of the humanities, or for the future of education more generally, I argue against their use in…

Pyrcz, Greg; MacLean, Tessa; Hopkins, Mark – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2017
The participation of young adults in performance-oriented music ensembles can be seen to enhance democratic capacities and virtues. Much, however, turns on the particular conception of democracy at work. Although contemporary currents in music education tend towards models of liberal and participatory democracy to govern music ensembles, this…

Ruitenberg, Claudia W. – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2017
This paper addresses educators' responsibility for the discourse (including their own and others') that circulates in educational settings. This issue tends to arise especially with hurtful language and other discursive acts that have negative effects, and that require an apology, correction, or some other kind of remedial discourse. The paper…

Tryggvason, Ásgeir – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2017
In recent years, an agonistic approach to citizenship education has been put forward as a way of educating democratic citizens. Claudia W. Ruitenberg (2009) has developed such an approach and takes her starting point in Chantal Mouffe's agonistic theory. Ruitenberg highlights how political emotions and political disputes can be seen as central for…

Blanken-Webb, Jane – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2017
This paper investigates the intersection of big data and philosophy of education by considering big data's potential for addressing learning via a holistic process of coming-to-know. Learning, in this sense, cannot be reduced to the difference between a pre- and post-test, for example, as it is constituted at least as much by qualities of…
