Thayer-Bacon, Barbara J. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In "A Pluralistic Universe," James argues that the world we experience is more than we can describe. Our theories are incomplete, open, and imperfect. Concepts function to try to shape, organize, and describe this open, flowing universe, while the universe continually escapes beyond our artificial boundaries. For James and myself, the…

Martin, Jane Roland – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
The thesis of this paper is that we are now in the early stage of a revolution even more transformative than the Copernican. That great upheaval brought about a radical shift in the way men and women conceptualized their place in the universe. The revolution now under way entails a sea change in the way we think about ourselves in relation to the…

Laird, Susan – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This essay responds to recent philosophical interest in the Anthropocene by asking (Trachtenberg in "Inhabiting the Anthropocene: how we live changes everything," 2016): Can and should educators adopt, form, transmit, teach ways of living to maintain, if not enhance Earth's habitability, especially its habitability for diverse children?…

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…

Bonnett, Michael – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This paper argues that education itself, properly understood, is intimately concerned with an individual's being in the world, and therefore is ineluctably environmental. This is guaranteed by the ecstatic nature of consciousness. Furthermore, it is argued that a central dimension of this environment with which ecstatic human consciousness is…

Zembylas, Michalinos – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This paper follows recent debates around theorizations of "affect" and its distinction from "emotion" in the context of non-representational theories (NRT) to exemplify how the ontologization of affects creates important openings of ethical and political potential in educators' efforts to make productive interventions in…

Jessop, Sharon – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In recent years, culture has become significantly politicized, or conspicuously de-politicized, in different parts of the UK, making its appearance in education policy of pivotal interest and ripe for critical attention. From the vantage point of Theodor Adorno's work on the culture industry and his writings on the work of the teacher, I argue…

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…

Bertucio, Brett – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This essay seeks to contribute to the critical reception of "Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives" by tracing the Taxonomy's underlying philosophical assumptions. Identifying Bloom's work as consistent with the legacy of Cartesian thought, I argue that its hierarchy of behavioral objectives provides a framework for certainty and…

Snir, Itay; Eylon, Yuval – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
The republican political tradition, which originated in Ancient Rome and picked up by several early-modern thinkers, has been revived in the last couple of decades following the seminal works of historian Quentin Skinner and political theorist Philip Pettit. Although educational questions do not normally occupy the center stage in republican…

Rucker, Thomas; Gerónimo, Eric Dan – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
In this article, an attempt is made to introduce a systematization of the loosely connected group of authors called "Bildungstheorie". This ought to not only be of significance for German-speaking educational science, for the concept of "Bildung" is also increasingly used internationally for the formulation and development of…
