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…

Whitt, Matt S. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
In classes that examine entrenched injustices like sexism or racism, students sometimes use "distancing strategies" to dissociate themselves from the injustice being studied. Education researchers argue that distancing is a mechanism through which students, especially students of apparent privilege, deny their complicity in systemic…

Corrado, Gail – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
Capability theory improves our understanding of well being because it takes account of the "conversion" problem: income/wealth/commodities. (IWCs) need to be made effectively available to really increase well being. However, just as IWCs need to be converted into functionings in order to be effective in bringing additional possibilities…

Duarte, Melina – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
"What (Whose) purpose does your knowledge serve?" In her book, Not for Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities, Martha Nussbaum states the difference between a democratic education for citizenship and an education for profit, and draws attention to the current education crisis caused by an overvaluation of the latter over the former.…

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…

Vlieghe, Joris – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
In this article I deal with the impact of digitization on education by revisiting the ideas Neil Postman developed in regard with the omnipresence of screens in the American society of the 1980s and their impact on what it means to grow up and to become an educated person. Arguing, on the one hand, that traditionally education is profoundly…

Krstic, Predrag – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
This paper aims to question anew the popular and supposedly self-evident affirmation of education, in its modern incarnation as in its historical notion. The "naive" questions suggest that we have recently taken for granted that education ought to be for the masses, that it ought to be upbringing, and that it is better than ignorance.…

Jonas, Mark E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
Over the last decade, philosophers of education have begun taking a renewed interest in Rousseau's educational thought. This is a welcome development as his ideas are rich with educational insights. His philosophy is not without its flaws, however. One significant flaw is his educational project for females, which is sexist in the highest degree.…

d'Agnese, Vasco – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
In this article I argue that Dewey, throughout his work, conducted a systematic dismantling of the concept of rationality as mastery and control. Such a dismantling entails, at the same time, the dismantling of the auto-grounded subject, namely, the subject that grounds itself in the power to master experience. The Deweyan challenge to Western…

Sidorkin, Alexander M. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
The paper examines "Campbell's Law": "The more any quantitative social indicator is used for social decision-making, the more subject it will be to corruption pressures and the more apt it will be to distort and corrupt the social processes it is intended to monitor." The examination of measurability leads to explaining the…

Jobani, Yuval – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
Universities in the USA have become bastions of secularity in a distinctly religious society. As such, they are subjected to a variety of robust and rigorous religious critiques. In this paper I do not seek to engage in the debate between the supporters of the secular university and its opponents. Furthermore, I do not claim to summarize the…

Tosas, Mar Rosàs – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
In this paper we claim educational leadership as an autonomous discipline whose goals and strategies should not mirror those typical of business and political leadership. In order to define the aims proper to educational leadership we question three common assumptions of what it is supposed to carry out. First, we turn to Hannah Arendt and her…

Jasinski, Igor; Lewis, Tyson E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
This paper reassesses a perennial concern of philosophy of education: the nature of the educational community and the role of the teacher in relation to such a community. As an entry point into this broader question, we turn to Philosophy for children (P4C), which has consistently emphasized the importance of community. Yet, not unlike pragmatist…

Naot-Ofarim, Yael; Solomonic, Sonia – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
While much has been written about relativism, multiculturalism and dialogue the case of education is special as in education the teacher "aims to promote" a set of values. This role of the teacher as bearing a worldview to be advanced is rarely addressed in the literature and is the focus of this paper. In the first section we explore…

Zimmermann, Ana Cristina; Morgan, W. John – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2016
From the beginning of history sounds have played a fundamentally important role in humanity's development as ways of expression and of communication. However in contemporary western society, and indeed globally, we are experiencing an excess of speech and a relentless encouragement to expression. Such excess indicates a misunderstanding about what…
