Wahl, Rachel – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Fierce debates over standardized assessments in teacher preparation have revolved around flaws in implementation and the politics of privatization. While important, this focus obscures the philosophical divide between proponents and opponents of standardized assessments. This article examines how faculty in New York State argue for and against a…

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…

Dahlbeck, Johan – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Spinoza's claim that self-preservation is the foundation of virtue makes for the point of departure of this philosophical investigation into what a Spinozistic model of moral education might look like. It is argued that Spinoza's metaphysics places constraints on moral education insofar as an educational account would be affected by Spinoza's…

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…

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…

Maiese, Michelle – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Education theorists have emphasized that transformative learning is not simply a matter of students gaining access to new knowledge and information, but instead centers upon personal transformation: it alters students' perspectives, interpretations, and responses. How should learning that brings about this sort of self-transformation be understood…

Boulter, Stephen – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
There appears to be an irresolvable disagreement between "progressives" and "conservatives" regarding the ultimate aims of education. This paper argues that the dispute is irresolvable as it currently stands because the traditional progressive/conservative dichotomies are false and based on distorted half-truths. The current…

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…

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…

Gibson, Howard; Garside, Darren – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
The final-year undergraduate dissertation is commonplace in Education Studies programmes across the world and yet its philosophical assumptions are complex and not always questioned. In England there is evidence to suggest a tacit preference for empiricism in textbooks designed to support early researchers. This brings, we suggest, problems…

Stolz, Steven A. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This essay argues that much can be gained from a close examination of Nietzsche's work with respect to education. In order to contextualise my argument, I provide a brief critique of Nietzsche's thinking on aesthetics, educators and education. I then turn my attention to the work of "Thus Spoke Zarathustra", the figures Zarathustra and…

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,…

Carusi, F. Tony – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Contemporary education policy discourse in the United States views teaching as the primary instrument to effect student achievement, and teachers are responding by leaving the profession and discouraging students from becoming teachers. While teaching is more commonly associated with hope, I argue that the growing dissatisfaction of teachers with…

Bourassa, Gregory N.; Margonis, Frank – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This article focuses upon monstrously generous teaching styles, enacted in neocolonial educational contexts, where the interactions between students and teachers are sometimes tense and mistrustful. The tensions between students and teachers are explained by discussing the ways in which schools--in the theoretical perspective of Roberto…

Mårdh, Andreas; Tryggvason, Ásgeir – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
This paper seeks to bring John Dewey's pragmatist philosophy of democratic education and the public into dialogue with Ernesto Laclau's theory of populism. Recognizing populism as an integral aspect of democracy, rather than as its antithesis, the purpose of this paper is to provide a theoretical account of populism as being of educational…
