Awakening from Descartes' nightmare: On the love of ambiguity in phenomenological approaches to education
Studies in Philosophy and Education 10 (3):211-232 (1990)
|Abstract||This paper is an exploration of the Cartesian paradigms of clarity and univocity and how these inform contemporary educational theory and practice. Phenomenology is discussed as a way of disrupting Descartes' visions of clarity and distinctness as paradigms of knowledge and as a return of inquiry to life as it is actually lived. Analogical discourse is examined as a way of giving a voice to this sort of inquiry. Heidegger's notions of inquiry as obedience and thanksgiving are discussed|
