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…

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…

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…

Szkudlarek, Tomasz – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
In the paper I analyze two features of the genre of the pedagogical. First is a particular usage of "should" statements (which I call postulational rhetoric) where one can identify an effect of erasing present normative behavior, while that which is postulated is turned into an unattainable ideal, or a value. Second, I analyze…

Truman, Sarah E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This article draws on Donna Haraway's call for feminist speculative fabulation as an approach to qualitative research methodologies and writing praxis in schools. The first section of the article outlines how I conceptualize speculative thought, through different philosophers and theorists, and provides a brief literature review of speculative…

Stengel, Barbara S. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Here I craft a case for recognizing the roots and patterns that ground the possibility of contemporary com-posting--as outlined in Donna Haraway's Staying with the Trouble--by New Materialists and critical pragmatists, especially those who are affected by the social injustices and ill-advised practices of today's formal education. I explore both…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This paper discusses Butler's theory on the possibility of precarity to serve as the nexus of ethical relations, while also exploring some of the pitfalls of her theorization to reconceptualize the pedagogical implications of a "critical pedagogy for precarity." In particular, the paper asks: How can precarity--understood as an…

Ildefonso-Sanchez, Givanni M. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This paper shows that philosophy and contemplation are integral parts of leisure ("scholé") and of a fully conscious educative experience. Through examination of the concepts of philosophy, the philosopher, and contemplation, it will be proposed that leisure is a necessary "condition" for philosophy and for education. To…

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…

Zhao, Weili – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Within educational philosophy and theory, there has been an international re-turn to envision "study" as an alternative formation to disrupt the defining "learning" logic. As an enrichment, this paper articulates "Daoist onto-un-learning" as an Eastern form of "study," drawing upon Roger Ames's (Confucian…

Campbell, Cary – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Many edusemiotic writers have begun to closely align edusemitoics to biosemiotics; the basic logic being that, if the life process can be defined through the criterion of semiotic engagement, so can the learning process (Stables in J Curr Stud 38(4):373-387, 2006). Thus, the ecological concept of umwelt has come to be a central area of…

Menning, Soern Finn – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
There seems to be a broad agreement that curiosity is important in education. However, current research often seeks to answer the question of how best to nurture curiosity and fails to ask the normative question of why this should be done. A closer look reveals that the reasons for justifying the importance of curiosity vary, with some theorists…

Loia, Donato – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This paper is part of a broader project in which I investigate autobiographical experiences and transcribed memories. Specifically, this essay analyzes the potential linkages between philosophical ideas and everyday social existence. First, I consider the correspondence between an anecdote from my own lived experience and the concept of Bildung--a…
