Sanchez Rojo, Alberto – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
With the rise of Modernity, times and spaces became tightly controlled: a space for every time, a time for every space and a particular way of behaving in each. To ward off the fear that this might stifle the free development of truly personal identity, the moderns created a room of one's own. This space gave one the chance to be alone with…

Risser, Rita Elizabeth – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
The philosopher Richard Rorty once remarked that the genre of philosophy writing is an extended conversation that can be traced to the dialogues of Plato. All the foundational questions of philosophy can be found in ancient philosophy texts. The subsequent history of philosophy is a dialectic progression on these questions. I argue that reading…

Standley, Jeff – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
It has been suggested that in order to aid students in fulfilling their potential and achieving optimum academic outcomes, both teachers and students themselves should hold beliefs that significantly overestimate student ability and go beyond the available evidence. In this article, I contend that teachers adopting such beliefs or instilling them…

Farrelly, Matthew R. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
Philosophers of education have argued that in order for Environmental Education's goals to succeed, students must form bonds and place attachments with nature. Some argue that immersive experiences in nature will be sufficient to form such attachments. However, this may not be enough, requiring other means of motivating them for environmental…

Schapira, Michael – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
This paper examines the role of normative ideals in contemporary critiques of the university. It begins by suggesting that the normative ideal of the university advanced by Immanuel Kant in "The Conflict of the Faculties" is particularly relevant to current critiques, as exemplified by a manifesto produced at the University of Aberdeen…

Lipowicz, Markus – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
Transhumanism promotes the application of emerging technologies and genetics in order to overcome the physical and cognitive limitations of the human species. In this article, the main question to be considered is the following: is Nietzsche's notion of educational self-overcoming compatible with the idea of biotechnological self-enhancement?…

Korsgaard, Morten Timmermann – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
In this paper, the notion of pearl diving as a metaphor for historical methodology is explored as a possible conceptual contribution to pedagogical thinking and practice. Pearl diving in the thinking of Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin refers to a process of bringing to life and coming to terms with a fragmented past, and requires of the thinker…

Nuraan, Davids – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
Debates on educational exclusion are almost exclusively focused on the experiences of learners as they navigate their way through barriers of race, culture, gender, sexuality, class, disability and language. Similar attention has not been afforded to the experiences of teachers, creating the impression that, unlike learners, teachers do not…

Mueller, Nathan Alexander – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
In this paper, I aim to reconsider MacIntyre's notion of an educated public. In particular, I aim to do so in light of his recent elucidation of the role of philosophical education in rejecting, or at least challenging, predominant and shared cultural assumptions. I begin by outlining MacIntyre's original case for an educated public as found in…

Lee, Soyoung – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
The importance of Levinas's philosophy for education has been widely discussed. In 'Levinas: Ethics or Mystification?' however, Alistair Miller questions whether Levinas's work is of value at all, raising doubts about whether his philosophy can, in any way, be helpful when it comes to practical ethical decision-making, especially within education.…

Chambers, Drew W. – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
While some of Paulo Freire's readers understand his pedagogy as a rejection of any and all directive teaching methods, there are many scholars who do recognise Freire's emphasis on teacher directiveness in its appropriate form. In light of this tension between directiveness and dialogue, it seems that students of Freire must inevitably come to a…

Standish, Paul – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
In 'Levinas: Ethics or Mystification?' (Miller, 2017), Alistair Miller presents a searing indictment of the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas and a dismissal of claims for its importance for education. He provides a summary account of Levinas's philosophy and, in relation to this, refers briefly to a number of authors who have related Levinas's work…

Lee, Soyoung – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
This paper explores the concept of "Gelassenheit" as developed in the later thought of Martin Heidegger. It seeks to show the relevance of this to aspects of education, especially to the ways that teaching can be enhanced in order to do better justice both to the learners and to what is studied. Thinking in this way helps to overcome the…

Wedin, Tomas – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2019
In a number of more recent studies, it has been argued that an increasingly presentistic temporal regime has emerged in educational politics since the 1970s. Against this backdrop, with Sweden as an exemplar, the purpose of this study is twofold. Firstly, it serves to elaborate on how this presentist temporal logic in the educational field appears…
