Howlett, Caitlin – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2017
The authors' life is inundated with children. She has always had an affinity for children insofar as they appear to her to be much more inquisitive and open-minded than the average so-called adult, and thus she enjoys springing big ideas on them to see what emerges. For instance, the author recently engaged in a twenty-minute-long conversation…

Humphrey, David – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2017
The words of W. E. B. Du Bois, in his widely-acclaimed work" The Souls of Black Folk," that "the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line" were a visceral attempt to illuminate the plight of the "Negro" in the United States of America. With this phrase, Du Bois positioned racial valorizations…

A university commitment to the liberal arts can take many forms, but more often than not it attempts to ensure that all students, regardless of direction or professed major, become educated in some form about the defining events of Western Civilization.

Roberts, J. Kessa – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
In raising their children, parents confer certain advantages upon them. Harry Brighouse and Adam Swift argue that because these parental advantages increase inequality, parents should have the right to confer only advantages that are integral to the core good of the parent-child relationship: building an intimate relationship between parent and…

Keehn, Gabriel – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
Educational philosophy, broadly speaking, has turned sharply in the direction of nonideal theorizing in recent years. The thesis of this paper is that this turn is premature, and will ultimately bear very little fruit for educational philosophy as a discipline. The author's argument proceeds through a discussion of the history of nonideal theory…

Mamlok, Dan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
The concept of freedom is one of the key ideas in political philosophy. In a liberal society one can do, live, and like whatever he/she pleases, but at the same time there are certain constraints on the individual that balance between one's desires and the common good. In this paper, the author examines the notion of freedom in the age of digital…
