Taylor, Ashley – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
The educational aims described by educational philosophers rarely embrace the full range of differences in intellectual ability, adaptive behavior, or communication that children exhibit. Because envisioned educational aims have significant consequences for how educational practices, pedagogy, and curricula are conceptualized, the failure to…

Rasheed, Shaireen – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Now more than ever the role of the other has been put into question and marginalized in a redefinition of an "American national self-protective identity" in the current post election climate. In philosophical terms, an identity of a radical other implies that any change, any difference, any impurity can be conceived as posing a threat to…

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,…

Fantuzzo, John – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Recalling the landmark US Supreme Court case "Brown v. Board of Education" (1954), the advancement of educational equality is often associated with the reduction of stigmatizing differences in status or "sense of inferiority" engendered by separately and differentially educated citizens. This essay takes up the obverse concern,…

Affifi, Ramsey – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
I consider the case of the "simplest" living beings--bacteria--and examine how their embodied activity constitutes an organism/environment interaction, out of which emerges the possibility of learning from an environment. I suggest that this mutual co-emergence of organism and environment implies a panbiotic educational interaction that…

Thoutenhoofd, Ernst D. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Pupils--the learners of both educational thought and of educational practice--exist ever more as data, as do the strictures and goals through which these pupils are pedagogically managed. I elaborate this thought by way of a single example: a particular kind of pupils whose number is reportedly on the increase, namely pupils diagnosed with…

Kennedy, David – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This paper seeks to address the question of schooling for democracy by, first, identifying at least one form of social character, dependent, after Marcuse, on the historical emergence of a "new sensibility." It then explores one pedagogical thread related to the emergence of this form of subjectivity over the course of the last two…

Healy, Mary – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
An important theme in the philosophy of education community in recent years has been the way in which philosophy can be brought to illuminate and evaluate research findings from the landscape of policy and practice. Undoubtedly, some of these practices can be based on spurious evidence, yet have mostly been left unchallenged in both philosophical…

Feu, Jordi; Serra, Carles; Canimas, Joan; Làzaro, Laura; Simó-Gil, Núria – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In the educational sphere, the concept of "democracy" is used in many and varied ways, though the hegemonic school culture often starts from a concept of democracy that is taken for granted, and it is understood that the entire educational community shares a similar concept. As a result of the research project "Democracy,…

Using the work of philosopher Henri Bergson (1859-1941) to examine the nature of movement and memory, this article contributes to recent research on the role of the body in learning mathematics. Our aim in this paper is to introduce the ideas of Bergson and to show how these ideas shed light on mathematics classroom activity. Bergson's monist…

Shuffelton, Amy – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
This essay argues that philosophy can be combined with qualitative research without sacrificing the aims of either approach. Philosophers and qualitative researchers have articulated and supported the idea that human meaning-constructions are appropriately grasped through close attention to "consequences incurred in action," in…
