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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Tiainen, Katariina; Leiviskä, Anniina; Brunila, Kristiina – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This paper provides a reinterpretation of Paulo Freire's philosophy of hope and suggests that this interpretation may function as a fruitful ground for democratic education that aims to contest the prevailing neoliberal 'common sense'. The paper defines hope as a democratic virtue required for resisting the discursive practises and affective…

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…

Stein, Sharon – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This article addresses the conceptual challenges of articulating the ethical-political limits of 'higher education as we know it', and the practical challenges of exploring alternative formations of higher education that are unimaginable from within the dominant imaginary of the higher education field. This article responds to the contemporary…

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…

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…

This article tries to defend the position that Holocaust Education can be enriched by appreciating laughter and humor as critical and transformative forces that not only challenge dominant discourses about the Holocaust and its representational limits, but also reclaim humanity, ethics, and difference from new angles and juxtapositions.

Sinha, Shilpi – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Derridean hospitality is seen to undergird ethical teacher-student interactions. However, hospitality is marked by three aporias that signal incommensurable and irreducible ways of being and responding that need to be held together in tension without eventual synthesis. Due to the sociopolitical materiality of race and the phenomenological…
