    Ethics in School Psychologists Report Writing: Acknowledging Aporia.Sunaina Attard, Daniela Mercieca & Duncan P. Mercieca - 2016 - Ethics and Education 11 (1):55-66.
    Research in school psychologist report writing has argued for reports that connect to the client’s context; have clear links between the referral questions and the answers to these questions; have integrated interpretations; address client strengths and problem areas; have specific, concrete and feasible recommendations; and are adapted to the language and literacy level of the reader. The training of school psychologists involves attention to these factors. However, this paper argues that the experience of aporia, as described by the French philosopher (...)

    ‘How Early is Early?’ Or ‘How Late is Late?’: Thinking Through Some Issues in Early Intervention.Daniela Mercieca & Duncan P. Mercieca - 2014 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 46 (8):1-15.
    Early intervention comes in-between the lives of children, families and teachers. This article uses part of a report written by an educational psychologist about a little girl to question the nature of intervention through Rancière’s writings. As children and parents are seen as put into the position of inadequacy, they require such intervention, which in turn makes them more inadequate. The article goes on to highlight the numerous ‘givings’ involved in early intervention, through Derrida’s writing. However, such giving is questioned (...)

    Initiating 'The Methodology of Jacques Rancière': How Does It All Start?Duncan P. Mercieca - 2012 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 31 (4):407-417.
    Educationalists are currently engaging with Jacques Rancière’s thought on emancipation and equality. The focus of this paper is on what initiates the process that starts emancipation. With reference to teachers the question is: how do teachers become emancipated? This paper discusses how the teacher’s life is made ‘sensible’ and how sense is distributed in her life. Two stories are taken from Rancière’s own work, that of Ingrid Bergman and Joseph Jacotot, that give us an indication of the initiation process of (...)

    Reading with Love: Reading of Life Narrative of a Mother of a Child with Cerebral Palsy.Daniela Mercieca & Duncan P. Mercieca - 2014 - Ethics and Education 9 (3):264-275.
    This paper draws upon Deleuze and Guattari's ideas to suggest a different kind of reading of a narrative of a mother of a child with severe disability, and thus a different kind of ethical response to them. This reading gives readers the possibility of opening up experiences of parents and children with disability, rather than compartmentalising such stories. The reader becomes, is transformed, through reading these narratives and through engaging with the intensities which are recognised in the text, asking the (...)

    Ethics education in Maltese public schools: a response to otherness or a contribution to Othering?Bernardette Mizzi & Duncan P. Mercieca - 2021 - International Journal of Ethics Education 6 (1):3-19.
    This paper reflects on the establishment of an Ethics Education Programme for school pupils aged between five and sixteen years who opt out of Catholic Religious Education in Malta. It needs to be seen in the light of the changing demography of Malta and the increasing secularisation of the country, as well as to the growing racism, islamophobia and rejection of the Other to be found all over Europe. We question if the Ethics Education Programme, in its commitment to ‘totalising’ (...)
