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.

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…

Mooney Simmie, Geraldine; Moles, Joanne – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
Here we reconsider teachers' changing subjectivities as autonomous agents whose practices acknowledge risk as an essential element in intellectual inquiry. We seek alternative descriptions to the limiting language of teachers' current practices within the primacy of the market. We are convinced by Levinas's claim that ethics is the first…

Wilcock, Neil – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
In this paper I draw apart two different contexts of Freirean pedagogical practice that I label interactional and institutional. The interactional refers to the immediate learning environment with relation to the interaction between the students and the teacher. In contrast, the institutional refers to how the institutions of education are…

Bates, Agnieszka – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
'Taking time seriously' is an enduring human concern and questions about the nature of time bear heavily on the meaning of childhood. In the context of the continuing debates on "readiness for school," 'taking time seriously' has contributed to policies on 'early interventions' which claim to support children in reaching their full…

Cole, David R. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Using Deleuzian theory for educational research and practice has become an increasingly popular activity (e.g., Cole 2011). However, there are many theoretical complexities to the straightforward application of Deleuze to the educational context. For example, the 'new materialism' that Deleuze refers to in the 1960s takes its inspiration from…

This paper provides a review of "Reconstructing 'Education' through Mindful Attention: Positioning the Mind at the Center of Curriculum and Pedagogy" by Oren Ergas.

In this article I present a discussion about the purpose of education of, for and with black, working class, young women within an inner-London, twenty-first century college, and explore the complex and imperfect ways that educational purpose translates into educational practice. I discuss the respective value of two contrasting discourses of…

Frank, Jeff – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This paper has two interrelated goals. The first is to introduce a framework: oppositional democracy. The second is to use this framework to address what I see as a central problem that occurs when learning to teach: the moment when someone with power tells an aspiring teacher that something she hopes to accomplish is "unrealistic". The…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This paper follows recent debates around theorizations of "affect" and its distinction from "emotion" in the context of non-representational theories (NRT) to exemplify how the ontologization of affects creates important openings of ethical and political potential in educators' efforts to make productive interventions in…

Feu, Jordi; Serra, Carles; Canimas, Joan; Làzaro, Laura; Simó-Gil, Núria – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In the educational sphere, the concept of "democracy" is used in many and varied ways, though the hegemonic school culture often starts from a concept of democracy that is taken for granted, and it is understood that the entire educational community shares a similar concept. As a result of the research project "Democracy,…

Mårdh, Andreas; Tryggvason, Ásgeir – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This paper seeks to bring John Dewey's pragmatist philosophy of democratic education and the public into dialogue with Ernesto Laclau's theory of populism. Recognizing populism as an integral aspect of democracy, rather than as its antithesis, the purpose of this paper is to provide a theoretical account of populism as being of educational…
