Szkudlarek, Tomasz – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
In the paper I analyze two features of the genre of the pedagogical. First is a particular usage of "should" statements (which I call postulational rhetoric) where one can identify an effect of erasing present normative behavior, while that which is postulated is turned into an unattainable ideal, or a value. Second, I analyze…

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…

Greenhalgh-Spencer, Heather – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Within the digital workforce, women are disappearing. While there are many factors that could be "blamed" for this phenomenon, this article takes issue with the sexist and patriarchal discourses that are deployed within the digital workforce. In many ways, sexist discourses are taken for granted within the digital workplace; and in that…

Hansen, Dion Rüsselbaek; Frederiksen, Lars Frode – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In this paper we argue that transnational as well as national political demands and expectations on the educational field are contributing to (re)produce four ideological-based educational leadership discourses in the literature. In order to conceptualize these discourses, we turn to the work of Schmidt ("Diagnosis I--Filosoferende…

d'Agnese, Vasco – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In recent decades, the shift towards the "learnification" of educational discourse has "de facto" reframed educational purposes and schooling practice, thus reframing what students should know, strive for, and, in a sense, be. In this paper, given the efforts to disrupt the dominance of learning discourse, I seek to engage…

Quay, John – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In outdoor education discourse the notion of relation is often employed to convey basic connections between humanity and nature as human-nature relationships, yet the sense of relation itself is rarely questioned. Drawing on the work of Peirce and Dewey, I explore the ramifications of a more nuanced understanding of relation, specifically how…

Rountree, Clarke; Rountree, John – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
Ever since the rhetorical turn in education, education scholars have recognized the importance of rhetoric in constructing and mediating human society. They have turned to rhetorical theory to come to terms with this rhetorically mediated reality and to engage students as critical citizens within it. Much of this work draws on rhetorical theorist…

Mailloux, Steven – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
This essay takes a rhetorical pragmatist perspective on current questions concerning educational goals and pedagogical practices. It begins by considering some challenges to rhetorical approaches to education, placing those challenges in the theoretical context of their posing. The essay then describes one current rhetorical approach--based on…

Moses, Michele S.; Saenz, Lauren P.; Farley, Amy N. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
The project we highlight in this article stems from our philosophical work on moral disagreements that appear to be--and sometimes are--intractable. Deliberative democratic theorists tout the merits of dialogue as an effective way to bridge differences of values and opinion, ideally resulting in agreement, or perhaps more often resulting in…

Kristjánsson, Kristján – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2014
This paper offers a sustained philosophical meditation on contrasting interpretations of the emotion of shame within four academic discourses--social psychology, psychological anthropology, educational psychology and Aristotelian scholarship--in order to elicit their implications for moral education. It turns out that within each of these…

Peim, Nick – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
Beginning with a reconsideration of what the school is and has been, this paper explores the idea of the school to come. Emphasizing the governmental role of education in modernity, I offer a line of thinking that calls into question the assumption of both the school and education as possible conduits for either democracy or social justice.…

Wivestad, Stein M. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
Both in formal situations (as school teachers, football trainers, etc.) and in many, often unpredictable informal situations (both inside and outside institutions)--adults come close to children. Whether we intend it or not, we continually give them examples of what it is to live as a human being, and thereby we have a pedagogical responsibility.…

Arcilla, René V. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
In his classic text, "A Theory of Justice", John Rawls argues that the structural principles of a society are just when they issue from a procedure that is fair. One crucial feature that makes the procedure fair is that the persons who will be subjected to these principles choose them after they have deliberated together in a condition…

Osterwalder, Fritz – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
The Republican education, its concepts, theories, and form of discourse belong to the shared European heritage of the pre-modern Age. The pedagogy of humanism and its effects on the early Modern Age are represented by Republicanism. Even if Republicanism found a political continuation in liberalism and democratism of the Modern Age, the same…

Riveros, Augusto – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
In this paper I highlight the significance of Maurice Merleau-Ponty's contribution to the study of teacher learning. I particularly draw on his notion of "embodiment" to show that professional knowledge is embodied knowledge and that teachers make sense of their professional world through their embodied action. I contrast my…
