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…

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…

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…

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…

Kilicoglu, Gokhan; Kilicoglu, Derya – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
Metamodernism, which is used synonymous with post-postmodernism or neo-modernism, has come forward in response to postmodernism and the emerged crises, instabilities, and uncertainties in all areas of this epoch. Metamodernism is a perspective situated epistemologically "with" (post)modernism, ontologically "between"…

Wang, Hongyu – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This paper draws upon both Carl Jung's theory of the psyche and nonviolence philosophy to re-examine curriculum dynamics in the context of teacher education. An integrative psychic life is enabled by the transcendent function of assimilating the unconscious to expand the horizon of consciousness while the integrative power of nonviolence heals the…

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…

Ariso, José María – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Literature on indoctrination has focused on imparting and revising beliefs, but it has hardly considered the way of teaching and acquiring certainties--in Wittgenstein's sense. Therefore, the role played by rationality in the acquisition of our linguistic practices has been overestimated. Furthermore, analyses of the relationship between certainty…

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…

Sidorkin, Alexander M. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Baumol's cost disease explains rising costs in education without corresponding increase in productivity. The philosophical meaning of it is in the phenomenon of relational labor that is at the core of education. Its productivity remains constant while cost increases. The total size of education as a non-progressive sector will continue to expand,…

Thayer-Bacon, Barbara J. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Just as Dewey argued during the industrial revolution, from the 1890s-1930s, and Martin argued in the 1960s-1990s with our "second wave" working revolution (when middle class women joined the work force in significant numbers): today's times are out of joint, potentially dangerous conflicts exist, and teachers have some responsibility in…

Greenhalgh-Spencer, Heather – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Haraway foregrounds many stories that we, in a late capitalist era, tell ourselves in order to justify, or not even notice, actions that are harmful to all living things. While I am mindful of Haraway's excellent attention to the ways that 'stories tell stories, thoughts think thoughts, and knots knot knots,' I argue that we must take great care…

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…
