  8. Emancipation as Subjectification. A Critical Realist Reading of Biesta’s Educational Philosophy.Michalis Christodoulou - 2020 - Journal of Critical Realism 19 (1):14-28.
    ABSTRACT‘Subjectification', the cornerstone concept of Biesta's philosophy of education, refers to how autonomy should be realized in educational settings and to the fact that explanation is irrelevant to emancipation. In this article a critical realist reading is provided of how Biesta links narrative learning to emancipation and of the shortcomings that spring from this connection. The central thesis of my argument is that truth and values should take center stage in an educational philosophy of emancipation and that these two concepts (...)

    The Fractured Society: Structures, Mechanisms, Tendencies.Graham Scambler - 2020 - Journal of Critical Realism 19 (1):1-13.
    ABSTRACTThis brief paper builds on my recently published work on financial capitalism. My objective here is to sketch an account of the primary social features of post-1970s financialised capitalism, to identify select dynamics or mechanisms that have resulted in these features, to outline a programme of research to enhance our explanatory understanding of the ‘fractured society’ via the sociological concepts of structure, culture and agency, and to broach, characterize and assess likely prospects and triggers for the accomplishment of a credible, (...)

    Wade Rowland’s Morality by Design Reflects the Religious Renaissance in Philosophy; and ‘It’s Pretty Toxic’ for Women and LGBTQ.Jason Summersell - 2020 - Journal of Critical Realism 19 (1):89-111.
    ABSTRACTRowland’s message in Morality by Design mirrors Kant’s ‘moral argument’ for God. As such, he is part of a global trend in philosophy towards a ‘religious renaissance’, also reflected in the work of orthodox critical realists, especially those who are drawn to Jurgen Habermas and/or John Dewey in addition to Roy Bhaskar. Many orthodox critical realists may not realize that their approach – which assumes the existence of an absolute, innate, embedded morality – ultimately requires the idea of God to (...)
