Healy, Mary – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
It is generally accepted that all humans have a profound need to belong and that a sense of 'belonging together' is a prerequisite for creating political communities. Many of our existing models for this 'first person plural' fail to fully account for the increased global mobility of persons which can all too often result in serial attachments at…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
This paper argues that it is important for educators in democratic education to understand how the rise of right-wing populism in Europe, the United States and around the world can never be viewed apart from the affective investments of populist leaders and their supporters to essentialist ideological visions of nationalism, racism, sexism and…

Misawa, Koichiro – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
Michael Bonnett has long attempted to rehabilitate the concept of nature, thereby challenging us to reconsider its profound implications for diverse educational issues. Castigating both 'postmodern' and 'scientistic' accounts of nature for failing to appreciate that nature is at once transcendent and normative, Bonnett proposes his…

Murphy, Michael P. A. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
The status of learning styles theory in educational studies is uncertain as we inhabit the liminal phase between the theory's death as proclaimed by educational psychologists who avow to have disproven it and whatever afterlife will follow. At this moment, with both past and future in view, that we have an opportunity to reflect on the…

Kruszelnicki, Wojciech – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
The aim of this paper is to introduce a correction into the notion of self-directed adult learning by way of conjoining it with philosophically elaborated notions of autonomy, self-reflectiveness, and maturity. The basic premise of this intervention is that in andragogical theorizing, learners' self-directedness ought not to be thought as obvious…

Gusacov, Eran – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
Educating students to become participatory citizens in their country is one of the explicit tasks of public education in a democratic-liberal state. In this article, I use civics education in Israel as a case study for the examination of the justification and the practicability of implementing political education in schools, as opposed to…

Rucker, Thomas – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
In this article, I propose a systematization of various aspects of Bildung-supportive teaching, as described in the context of German-language general didactics. I start by describing teaching as the basic form of education in which one person helps another to acquire knowledge. I then clarify the concept of Bildung. It is suggested that Bildung…

Villacañas de Castro, Luis Sebastián – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
This article aims to establish a line of continuity between John Dewey's democratic and educational ideals and the practice of action research, to justify that the latter affords an adequate means to enact Dewey's ideals against the destructive challenges that neoliberalism poses to democracy today. This aim involves three ideas that will be…

Furman, Cara E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
As ethical agents, teachers regularly must decide whether compliance to rules and norms is in the best interest of their students. Yet, teachers in the United States are educated to be passively obedient. In this paper, I argue that part of pre-service teacher education ought to learn ways of resisting. I describe one approach to verbal…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
The point of departure of this article is that hospitality in education has not been theorized in terms of emotion and affect, partly because its law(s) have been discussed in ways that have not paid much attention to the role of emotion and affect. The analysis broadens our understanding of the ethics and politics of hospitality by considering it…

Andrade, Erika Natacha Fernandes de; Cunha, Marcus Vinicius da – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
This work relates L. S. Vygotsky's theory to the rhetorical and poetic pedagogy, which is a set of educational ideas and practices derived from the philosophical-educational tradition initiated by the Sophists. It is verified that the Vygotskyan concepts contribute to broaden the foundations of poetic and rhetorical pedagogy, presenting a…

Scotton, Paolo – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
Education is commonly considered to be a transformational practice that contributes both to forging the personality of individuals and to promoting social entanglements. For this reason, education always has a normative character that rests on a particular concept of what humanity and society should be. However, educational policies and practices…

Portin, Fredrik – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
In this theoretical and explorative essay, two issues are discussed, which are based on personal experiences of teaching ethics. The first is what educational purpose does it serve to challenge students as ethical subjects while teaching a class? This issue is mainly discussed through an analysis of Gert Biesta's works. He argues that an essential…

Schinkel, Anders – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
Education as a deliberate activity and purposive process necessarily involves mediation, in the sense that the educator mediates between the child and the world. This can take different forms: the educator may function as a guide who initiates children into particular practices and domains and their modes of thinking and perceiving; or act as a…
