Oral, Sevket Benhur – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
Education as a domain of conceptual activity and a field of scientific/scholarly research needs to address the movement from the traumatized subject to subject-as-trauma. This movement and the concomitant conceptual shift in how we ought to understand the subject correspond, in the domain of education, to the "radicalization" of what…

Smith, Spencer J. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
Philosophers of education have long contemplated how the normative charge of education might include disruption of the status quo. Thinking about our work as being in battle with the status quo, though, is problematic. Partly, the author agrees with thinkers like George S. Counts that education can be a vehicle for social reconstruction. But he is…

Gottlieb, Derek – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
The ongoing attempts to measure educational quality, to hold schools responsible for their performance against these measures, and to use the resulting data to design improvement initiatives have yet to yield the promised results. A universal definition of "good education" seems to elude our grasp. Despite broad public support for…

McCloud, Jennifer; Hurley, Angela – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
The fear of school violence drives "defensive" schooling policies, and it is not unlike the fear that currently supports aggressive foreign policies that sanction drone strikes and the incarceration of suspected terrorists. However, the current measures taken for defense against terrorism are not working, and the same types of…

Logue, Jennifer – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
Lacan once remarked that there was "something quite ironic about Christ's injunction to love thy neighbor as thyself because, actually, people hate themselves." Can Lacan's observation about our loving and hating our neighbors the way we love and hate ourselves help us to make sense of ongoing, almost incomprehensible suffering, the rise…

Howlett, Caitlin – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2017
The authors' life is inundated with children. She has always had an affinity for children insofar as they appear to her to be much more inquisitive and open-minded than the average so-called adult, and thus she enjoys springing big ideas on them to see what emerges. For instance, the author recently engaged in a twenty-minute-long conversation…

DeCesare, Tony – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2017
As part of the sustained and growing resistance to narrow achievement-based approaches to (and measures of) inequality in education, educational researchers of various stripes are once again taking up both conceptual and practical questions concerning inequalities in educational opportunity. As Carter and Welner have noted recently,…

Anderson, Morgan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
Educational discourse, particularly since the advent of recent educational reform initiatives, has become saturated with a discourse of "high expectations." One can hardly hope to hold a conversation regarding the problems facing American schools without someone innocently remarking that of course students need to be held to "high…

Ozar, Ryan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
Contemporary practitioners of experiential learning look to John Dewey and other progressives for the foundation on which to interpret, design, and facilitate learning through experience. Although Dewey's theory of learning through experience was greatly influenced by other educational theorists and practitioners of the 18th and 19th centuries, by…

Mamlok, Dan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
The allegory of the cave illustrates one of the central problems in philosophy: the gap between reality as it appears to be and the reality in itself. The allegory of prisoners in the cave, as opposed to being free out of the cave, symbolizes the gap between illusion and truth--between the thing and the thing in itself. The moment of getting out…

West, Amanda – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2014
When educators label as "emotional" the girl crying in the bathroom or the boy who just slammed his locker shut, they risk assuming that only overt displays qualify as emotional and therefore necessitate attention. The fact is that whether a student outwardly displays emotion or not, he or she is emotional, and the teacher has a…

Zhao, Guoping – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2014
For several decades education has struggled to find a way out of the entanglement of modernity, the premises and assumptions under which modern education has operated. According to Robin Usher and Richard Edwards, modern education, as the "dutiful child of the Enlightenment," has been "allotted a key role in the forming and shaping…

Rodgers, Keri – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2014
The small school movement originated in the democratic ideology of Deborah Meier, who sought to create schools that gave students, parents, teachers, and all stakeholders in the communities they served a voice in education. In New York City, Meier's vision was implemented haphazardly by a group of business and political elites able to pour…

Mayo, Cris – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2013
This article examines the kind of space formed by philosophical discussion of education with lower-income, adult learners making their way back to structured education amidst work and life responsibilities. It explores two new social contexts that define this experience of return to education. The first is the sociability of philosophical…

Weems, Lisa D. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2013
This article examines the need for an epistemological and ethical shift to a "guerilla pedagogy" in education. Guerilla pedagogy is characterized as a form of engagement that utilizes a wide variety of strategies, tactics, and missives toward the goal of "reterritorializing" both the academy and what counts as knowledge…
