  1. Method, Philosophy of Education and the Sphere of the Practico-Inert.Marianna Papastephanou - 2009 - Philosophy of Education 43 (3):451-469.
    This essay discusses a conception of the relation of philosophy to education that has come to be widely held in both general philosophy and philosophy of education. This view is approached here through the employment of Jean-Paul Sartre's notion of the ‘practico-inert’ as the realm of consolidated social objects, part of which is the institution of education. It is shown that a rigid demarcation of the practico-inert, on the one hand, and praxis, on the other, lies at the heart of (...)

  • Heidegger, Education and the ‘Cult of the Authentic’.Ben Trubody - 2015 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 49 (1):14-31.
    Within educational philosophies that utilise the Heideggerian idea of ‘authenticity’ there can be distinguished at least two readings that correspond with the categories of ‘weak’ and ‘strong’ utopianism. ‘Strong-utopianism’ is the nostalgia for some lost Edenic paradise to be restored at some future time. Here it is the ‘world’ that needs to be transcended for it is the source of our inauthenticity, where we are the puppets of modernist-capitalist ideologies. ‘Authenticity’ here is a value-judgment, understood as something that makes you (...)

  • Ethics After God's Death and the Time of the Angels.Marianna Papastephanou - 2012 - Cosmos and History : The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy 8 (1):94-130.
    The philosophical idea of the death of God has had various semantic operations within dominant modern positions on human empowerment. Beginning with the significance of this, the article aims to discuss the half-life of a God who has become a metaphor. In other words, it explores the reverberation of God and God's death in secularized philosophy as well as the consequences of this for ethics and the conception of the Good. Then, the article illustrates the complex connection of this aim (...)

  • At the End of the Post-Communist Transformation? Normalization or Imagining Utopia?Larry Ray - 2009 - European Journal of Social Theory 12 (3):321-336.
    This article reviews the implications of the collapse of Communism in Europe for some themes in recent social theory. It was often assumed that 1989 was part of a global process of normalization and routinization of social life that had been left behind earlier utopian hopes. Nothing that utopia is open to various interpretations, including utopias of the everyday, this article suggests, first that there were utopian dimensions to 1989, and, second, that these hopes continue to influence contemporary social and (...)
