    Troubled Theory in the Debate Between Hirst and Carr.Fiachra Long - 2008 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 42 (1):133-147.
    When Paul Hirst and Wilfred Carr squared up to each other a few years ago on the issue of the role of philosophical theory in educational practice, it became clear that theory itself had become a troubled term. The very fact that Wilfred Carr could argue for the end of educational theory recalls Paul Feyerabend's fiery argument for the end of theory in natural science and simply deepened the attack that had already appeared in Carr and Kemmis's book, Becoming Critical (...)

    Transhuman Education? Sloterdijk's Reading of Heidegger's Letter on Humanism.Fiachra Long - 2016 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 50 (4).
    Peter Sloterdijk presented a reading of Heidegger's Letter on Humanism at a conference held at Elmau in 1999. Reinterpreting the meaning of humanism in the light of Heidegger's Letter, Sloterdijk focused his presentation on the need to redefine education as a form of genetic ‘taming’ and proposed what seemed to be support for positive eugenics. Although Sloterdijk claimed that he only wanted to open a debate on the issue, he could not have been surprised at the level of opposition this (...)

    Maurice Blondel’s Moral Logic.Fiachra Long - 1988 - Philosophical Studies 32:213-223.
    Maurice Blondel devised a logic of the moral life on the grounds that action itself respects its own law of contradiction. Thwarted by compulsions and often by habits, the actions we choose often do not reflect the principles we endorse and so we sometimes find our actions operating against what we actually want to achieve. To describe this possible imbalance Blondel outlines five rules which describe the vulnerability of human action until the individual actor must finally confront her own destiny.

    The Postmodern Flavor of Blondel’s Method.Fiachra Long - 1991 - International Philosophical Quarterly 31 (1):15-22.
    It is helpful to recall the postmodern flavour of Blondel's method as one reflects on the connection between science and consciousness. How is speed knowledge as generated by the speed of technological advancement reconciled with the relative slowness of human life? The question arising from contemporary experience is whether science has any intrinsic ethical dimension.

    Blondel on the Origin of Philosophy.Fiachra Long - 1989 - Philosophy Today 33 (1):21-27.
    Maurice Blondel's articles from 1906 on the origin of philosophy opens with the idea of whether philosophy is be spontaneous or whether it requires specific training. Behind this question lies the more fundamental issue of the relative balance of science and life and where philosophy finds its more natural home.

  12. The Idealist Illusion and Other Essays.Maurice Blondel, Fiachra Long & Claude Troisfontaines - 2000
    This book presents three of Blondel's important turn of the century articles. These are The Idealist Illusion (1898), The Elementary Principle of a Logic of the Moral Life (1903) and in two parts, The Starting Point of Philosophy (1906). These essays uncover a certain pragmatism in Blondel's thought while Fiachra Long's introduction argues that Blondel veered away from idealism and towards a logic of the concrete life which allied him closely if unwittingly with the Scottish common sense school of Thomas (...)
