Cole, David R. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Using Deleuzian theory for educational research and practice has become an increasingly popular activity (e.g., Cole 2011). However, there are many theoretical complexities to the straightforward application of Deleuze to the educational context. For example, the 'new materialism' that Deleuze refers to in the 1960s takes its inspiration from…

Shutkin, David – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
Distributed cognition, as it considers how technologies augment cognition, informs technology integration in education. Most educational technologists interested in distributed cognition embrace a representational theory of mind. As this theory assumes cognition occurs in the brain and depends on the internal representation of external…

Charles, Matthew – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Although, as a result of the introduction of the Teaching Excellence Framework, the principle of teaching excellence is receiving renewed attention in English higher education, the idea has been left largely undefined. The cynic might argue, in agreement with Bill Readings, that this lack of a precise definition is deliberate, since teaching…

O'Donnell, Aislinn – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
The existential, experiential, ethical, pathic and pre-pathic dimensions of education are essential for the creative composition of subjectivities in institutional spaces, yet educational research and policy tend increasingly to privilege technical discourses and prescriptive approaches both when evaluating "what is effective in…

Bazzul, Jesse – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
Research that explores ethics can help educational communities engage twenty-first century crises and work toward ecologically and socially just forms of life. Integral to this research is an engagement with social theory, which helps educators imagine our shared worlds differently. In this paper I present two theoretical-methodological directions…

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…

Yoda, Kazuaki – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This paper introduces Simone Weil's notion of reading and some of its implications to education. Weil's philosophy, in particular her notion of attention has caught interest of some education scholars; however, the existing studies are still underdeveloped. Introducing Weil's notion of reading, which has not been studied almost at all by…

Saari, Antti – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
The article discusses the allegedly decontextualized and ahistorical traits in positivist educational research and curriculum by examining its emergence in early twentieth-century empirical education. Edward Lee Thorndike's educational psychology is analyzed as a case in point. It will be shown that Thorndike's positivist educational psychology…

Rutten, Kris; Soetaert, Ronald – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
In this article we introduce the special issue "Attitudes Toward Education: Kenneth Burke and New Rhetoric," which brings together a number of contributions that were first presented at the conference "Rhetoric as Equipment for Living. Kenneth Burke, Culture and Education" (Ghent University, May 2013). Kenneth Burke [1897-1993]…

Golding, Clinton – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
Philosophical research tends to be done separately from empirical research, but this makes it difficult to tackle questions which require both. To make it easier to address these hybrid research questions, I argue that we should sometimes combine philosophical and empirical investigations. I start by describing a continuum of research methods from…

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…

Berger, Iris – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2015
This paper aims to impregnate the concept of educational leadership with new meanings and new possibilities. I draw on Hannah Arendt's ("The human condition." University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1958/1998) political thought, particularly, her concepts of "plurality" and "natality" alongside the distinction she made…

Smeyers, Paul; de Ruyter, Doret J.; Waghid, Yusef; Strand, Torill – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2014
In many countries publications in Web of Knowledge journals are dominant in the evaluation of educational research. For various purposes comparisons are made between the output of philosophers of education in these journals and the publications of their colleagues in educational research generally, sometimes also including psychologists and/or…

Bengtsson, Jan – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
The intention of this article is to make an educational analysis of Merleau-Ponty's theory of experience in order to see what it implicates for educational practice as well as educational research. In this way, we can attain an understanding what embodied experience might mean both in schools and other educational settings and in researching…

Corrado, Gail – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
Ability and achievement are not traits: they are relations. Mistaking traits for relations has a history even in science (our understanding of gravity). This mistake is possibly responsible for the lackluster performance of the results of our educational research when we have tried to use it to inform policy. It is particularly troublesome for…
