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.

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…

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…

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.

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…

Noordegraaf-Eelens, Liesbeth; Kloeg, Julien – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
Biesta distinguishes three functions of education: qualification, socialization and subjectification. We focus on subjectification. When first addressing this concept, Biesta referred to action as defined by Arendt, thereby stressing the importance of 'the question of freedom'. More recently, the question of freedom (Arendt) is replaced by 'the…

Waghid, Yusef – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
African philosophy of higher education and its concomitant link to teaching and learning on the continent, is a concept that remains contestable, as much about African thought and practice is presumed to exist in narrative form. However, even if African thought and practice were to have existed in narrative form only, it would not necessarily be…

"Study" is recently re-invoked as an alternative educational formation to disrupt the learning trap and trope. This paper calibrates "study" and "learning" as two hermeneutic principles and correlates them with "seeing," "hearing," and "observing" as three onto-epistemic modes that…

Lewis, Tyson E.; Xu, Li – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
In this paper, we pose a speculative encounter between Heidegger and the Chinese Song Dynasty landscape painter Xia Gui. Our intention is to reassess Heidegger's theory of the fourfold. By placing the concept in a cross-cultural context, we argue that Heidegger was essentially correct in that the world is structured as a fold between interrelated…

Giannakakis, Vangelis – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
This paper examines the loss of culture as a possible effect of the neoliberalisation of education, especially higher education.
