Dumitru, Adelin Costin – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
In this paper I make a contribution to three distinct, but deeply interwoven subjects. Firstly, I argue that, at the level of ideal theory, the distribution of educational goods should follow a sufficientarian pattern and that the evaluative space of children's advantage should be inspired by the capability approach (although with an important…

Tinning, Katrine – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
In recent years there has been an increasing interest in museum studies in exhibitions on what is termed Difficult Matters (Silvén and Björklund 2006)--such as rape and mass murder--and how such exhibitions may evoke ethical change. This raises the question about the conditions on which such exhibitions can lead to an ethical change. By developing…

Peterson, Andrew – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
The aim of this paper is to consider the ways in which civic republican theory can provide a meaningful and useful account of social justice, one that is which holds resonance for educational debates. Recognising the need for educationalists interested in civic republicanism to pay greater attention to ideas of justice--and in particular social…

Mahon, Áine; O'Brien, Elizabeth – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This paper engages the philosophical concepts of subjectification and acknowledgment in conversation with Philip Pullman's young adult novel, "Northern Lights". Our particular focus is Lyra Belacqua, Pullman's central character. Precarious in her vulnerability and in her unknown significance, we read Lyra as usefully negotiating the…

Zhao, Weili; Ford, Derek R. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Within educational philosophy and theory there has recently been a re-turn to the concept and practices of studying as an alternative or oppositional educational logic to push back against learning as the predominant mode of educational engagement. While promising, we believe that this research on studying has been limited in a few ways. First,…

Bojesen, Emile – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
The primary purpose of this paper is to outline the conceptual means by which it is possible to be optimistic about education. To provide this outline I turn to Ian Hunter and David Blacker, after a brief introduction to Nietzsche's conceptions of optimism and pessimism, to show why certain forms of optimism in education are either intellectually…

Stanger, Camilla – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
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…

Glendinning, Simon – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This paper explores the challenges facing educators in a time when modern technology, and especially modern social technology, has an increasingly powerful hold on our lives. The educational challenge does not primarily concern questions concerning the use of technology in the classroom, or as part of the learning environment, but a changeover in…

Kuntz, Aaron M.; Petrovic, John E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
In this article we consider the material dimensions of schooling as constitutive of the possibilities inherent in "fixing" education. We begin by mapping out the problem of "fixing education," pointing to the necrophilic tendencies of contemporary education--a desire to kill what otherwise might be life-giving. In this sense,…

Charles, Matthew – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Although, as a result of the introduction of the Teaching Excellence Framework, the principle of teaching excellence is receiving renewed attention in English higher education, the idea has been left largely undefined. The cynic might argue, in agreement with Bill Readings, that this lack of a precise definition is deliberate, since teaching…

O'Donnell, Aislinn – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
The existential, experiential, ethical, pathic and pre-pathic dimensions of education are essential for the creative composition of subjectivities in institutional spaces, yet educational research and policy tend increasingly to privilege technical discourses and prescriptive approaches both when evaluating "what is effective in…

Belas, Oliver – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This article offers a detailed reading Gascoigne and Thornton's book "Tacit Knowledge" (2013), which aims to account for the tacitness of tacit knowledge (TK) while preserving its status as knowledge proper. I take issue with their characterization and rejection of the existential-phenomenological Background--which they presuppose even…

Bergdahl, Lovisa; Langmann, Elisabet – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
This paper rethinks the fostering task of the teacher in a time when it, paradoxically, has tended to become marginalized and privatized despite its public urgency. Following post-holocaust thinkers such as Hannah Arendt and Zygmunt Bauman, the position explored here is radical in the sense that it takes 'the crisis of traditions' and the erosion…

Zipory, Oded – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Over the last 20 years, there has been an increase in philosophical inquiries of hope both in philosophy of mind and of virtue as well as in the philosophy of education. This paper wishes to add to this discussion by presenting the analysis of hope by French existentialist philosopher and theologian Gabriel Marcel and examining its possible…
