    First Page Preview.Nesta Devine, John Freeman-Moir, Aidan Hobson, Ruyu Hung, Peter Roberts, Claudia Rozas Gomez, Elias Schwieler, Alan Scott & Richard Smith - 2013 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 45 (4):409-419.
    Joseph Conrad’s ‘The secret sharer’ has often been associated with what can be called initiation stories. However, in this article I argue that Conrad’s text is more than that. It can, I suggest, be read as an allegory of the inaccessibility to reveal the essence of being in command, being in education, and also the inaccessibility of the essence of the meaning of the text itself. It keeps its secret by allegorically staging alternative readings. This inaccessibility gives rise to a (...)

    Universities and the Regulatory Framework: The Austrian University System in Transition.Christian Burtscher, Pier‐Paolo Pasqualoni & Alan Scott - 2006 - Social Epistemology 20 (3 & 4):241 – 258.
    This article uses recent changes within the Austrian university system to illustrate some general features and dilemmas of organizational design and reform. We focus upon two recent layers of the sediments left by previous and current system reforms: that left by the events of 1968 on continental university systems, and Austria's late conversion to the path taken by the Anglo-American university system since the late 1970s/early 1980s; namely, towards what Marginson and Considine (2000) have called the "enterprise university". These two (...)

  6. Reactionaries of the Lectern: Universalism, Anti-Empiricism and Corporatism in Austrian (and German) Social Theory.Silvia Rief & Alan Scott - 2021 - European Journal of Social Theory 24 (2):285-305.
    This article discusses one early manifestation of a recurring theme in social theory and sociology: the relationship between general theory and empirical research. For the early critical theorists, empiricism and positivism were associated with technocratic domination. However, there was one place where the opposite view prevailed: science and empiricism were viewed as forces of social and political progress and speculative social theory as a force of reaction. That place was Red Vienna of the 1920s and early 1930s. We examine how (...)

    A Desperate Comedy: Hope and Alienation in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.Alan Scott - 2013 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 45 (4):448-460.
    This article is both a personal response to Samuel Beckett?s Waiting for Godot and an examination of the concept within literature of making the strange familiar and making the familiar strange. It discusses the educative force and potential of Beckett?s strangers in a strange world by examining my own personal experiences with the play. At the same time the limitations of Beckett?s theatre are explored through the contrast with the work of Berthold Brecht, who sought to make the familiar strange (...)

    Introduction to the Kelsen-Bauer Debate on Marxist State Theory and the Equilibrium of Class Forces.Alan Scott - forthcoming - Thesis Eleven:072551362098565.
    This serves as an introduction to a debate between Hans Kelsen and Otto Bauer concerning the nature and relative autonomy of the state, and the theories that informed the political practices of the Austro-Marxists and of the SDAP immediately after the fall of the monarchy and during the early years of the First Republic. Both pieces were published in Der Kampf, the SDAP’s theoretical journal, in which many key texts of Austro-Marxist thought appeared. The debate is of theoretical interest, particularly (...)

    Leader Democracy.Alan Scott - 2018 - Thesis Eleven 148 (1):3-20.
    There is a revival of notions of leader democracy and plebiscitary leader democracy both at the level of politics and in academic debate. This paper focuses largely on the latter, with occasional reference to real-world political developments. The paper sketches changes in the nature of contemporary governance; argues that Weber’s and Schumpeter’s account of leader democracy LD) as a means of addressing the crisis of representation has marked affinities with current debates; discusses the possible implications of the re-emergence of a (...)
