Parker, Lana – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2019
At a time when an ethics based on responsibility for the Other offers a counter to the individualism of neoliberal ideology, I argue that it is crucial to recuperate the possibility of creating the conditions for ethical moments of facing through all means possible, including art. I deliberate the possibilities for art in sustaining Levinas's…

Giesinger, Johannes – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2019
The problem of paternalism, widely discussed in moral and political philosophy, has not received much attention in the philosophy of education. Yet Johannes Drerup claims that paternalism should be considered 'an indigenous concept' of educational theory, and 'the indigenous model of justification' in education. This essay explores Drerup's claim,…

Yacek, Douglas W.; Jonas, Mark E. – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2019
Numerous studies have shown that secondary and college students are increasingly apathetic and disengaged from their schooling.

In teacher education programs, there is a prevalent belief that having teacher candidates compose personalized 'my philosophy of education' (MPE) statements is a valuable exercise that prepares them for the teaching profession.

Allen, Ansgar – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
This paper considers the plight of Western education and the demands it makes upon us. It argues that the feared end of education underpins and unduly shackles reflection on the current crisis of education. As a spectral, abysmal prospect, it both fetters and stimulates educational critique, mobilising critique to the support of a cause it cannot…

Hayden, Matthew J. – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Cosmopolitan education has been much theorized, discussed, and proposed, but what exactly might it look like and what specific processes might it involve? Cosmopolitanism's recognition of shared humanity and the subsequent entailment of democratic inclusion make explicit the moral and political nature of cosmopolitan education and philosophy. As…

Knight, Kathleen Abowitz – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Agonistic critiques of democratic theory conceptualize democracy as a site of conflict and struggle; as the fight against privatization escalates, these critiques become more relevant for educational governance. Public education governance has, in addition, increasingly been the site of conflicts between federal, state and local levels, as…

Warnick, Bryan; Yacek, Douglas; Robinson, Shannon – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Being responsive to the experiences, ideas, and stories of others is an essential trait for democratic citizens. Responsiveness promotes the general welfare, shows respect for others, and allows for what Tony Laden (2012) has called the social practice of reasoning. Political theorists have shown how responsiveness is a middle ground between…

Colgan, Andrew D. – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Many symposia and special journal issues over the last several decades have been devoted to concerns about the decline of philosophy in teacher education programs.

Siegel, Harvey – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
This comment is in response to Andrew D. Colgan's article in a previous issue of the journal. While the author finds Colgan's institutional analysis compelling and agrees his proposed "deinstitutionalizing solutions" of reviving teacher culture and return teacher education preparation to teachers' colleges. He proposes a third remedy,…

In Canada, several universities have recently implemented course requirements in Indigenous studies as a condition of graduation, while others are considering following suit.

Martin, Christopher – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Does the liberal state have a role in helping mature citizens make worthwhile educational choices? The question has clear relevance for the aims of higher education in a liberal democratic society. As systems of higher education internationalize, it has become difficult for liberal states to steer higher education policy in directions that serve…

The idea of the "developmental university" was popularised on the African continent in the post-independence period, but has recently returned to view on account of the positioning of the university in the newly agreed United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The developmental model is characterised by service to society,…
