Stein, Sharon – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2019
This article addresses the conceptual challenges of articulating the ethical-political limits of 'higher education as we know it', and the practical challenges of exploring alternative formations of higher education that are unimaginable from within the dominant imaginary of the higher education field. This article responds to the contemporary…

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…

Orón Semper, José Víctor; Blasco, Maribel – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2018
The so-called 'hidden curriculum' (HC) is often presented as a counterproductive element in education, and many scholars argue that it should be eliminated, by being made explicit, in education in general and specifically in higher education (HE). The problem of the HC has not been solved by the transition from a teacher-centered education to a…

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,…

Jensen, Kipton E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This essay describes a visionary philosophy of education at Morehouse College. The educational process at Morehouse, construed here as a form of pedagogical personalism, is personified in three luminaries of Morehouse College: Benjamin Elijah Mays, Howard Washington Thurman, and Martin Luther King. The educational process at Morehouse should be…

Sigurðsson, Geir – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Critical thinking is currently much celebrated in the contemporary West and beyond, not least in higher education. Tertiary education students are generally expected to adopt a critical attitude in order to become responsible and constructive participants in the development of modern democratic society. Currently, the perceived desirability of…

Sherman, Glen L. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
Emmanuel Levinas, a twentieth century French Continental philosopher, proposed an original understanding of ethics which has serious implications for the particular activities within higher education designated as service learning and community service. First I will define service learning and community service and briefly review the theoretical…

Fulford, Amanda – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
This paper considers concepts of expectation and responsibility, and how these drive dialogic interactions between tutor and student in an age of marketised Higher Education. In thinking about such interactions in terms of different forms of exchange, the paper considers the philosophy of Martin Buber and Emmanuel Levinas on dialogic…

Reindal, Solveig M. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2013
The Bologna Framework for higher education has agreed on three "cycle descriptors"--knowledge, skill and general competence--which are to constitute the learning outcomes and credit ranges for the three cycles of higher education: The Bachelor, the Master and the PhD. In connection with the implementations of the national qualification…

Papastephanou, Marianna – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
In this article I explore some points of convergence between Habermas and Derrida that revolve around the intersection of ethical and epistemological issues in dialogue. After some preliminary remarks on how dialogue and language are viewed by Habermas and Derrida as standpoints for departing from the philosophy of consciousness and from…

Bamber, John; Crowther, Jim – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
Re-working the Gramscian idea of the "organic" intellectual from the cultural-political sphere to Higher Education (HE), suggests the need to develop critical and questioning "counter hegemonic" ideas and behaviour in community education students. Connecting this reworking to the Habermasian theory of communicative action, suggests that these…

Quill, Lawrence – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2011
In 1982, Neil Postman wrote "The Disappearance of Childhood." In that work, Postman recounted the invention of childhood in the modern world and its demise at the hands of, among other things, the electronic media (principally television). In Postman's view, television had transformed education into "edutainment." The implications of this loss…

Gibbs, Paul – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2010
Heidegger's early works provide his most important contribution to our understanding of being, while his discussion of the effects of technology on that being in his later works is one of his best known contributions. I use his phenomenological approach to understanding the workplace and then, from a range of potential applications, choose to…

Watts, Michael – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2009
Adaptive preferences are both a central justification and continuing problem for the use of the capability approach. They are illustrated here with reference to a project examining the choices of young people who had rejected higher education. Jon Elster, Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum have all criticised utilitarianism on the grounds that a…

Metz, Thaddeus – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2009
I seek to answer the question of whether publicly funded higher education ought to aim intrinsically to promote certain kinds of "blue-sky" knowledge, knowledge that is unlikely to result in "tangible" or "concrete" social benefits such as health, wealth and liberty. I approach this question in light of an African moral theory, which contrasts…
