    Reclaiming Paedeia in an Age of Crises: Education and the Necessity of Wisdom.Jānis Tālivaldis Ozoliņš - 2015 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 47 (9):870-882.
    Education needs to prepare students to have understanding of themselves, of their relationships to others, to have an ability to make good moral and other judgements and to act on these. If education has a role to play in the alleviation of the crises facing the world, then there is some urgency in reflecting on what kind of education is needed in order to prepare young people to tackle these many crises. It is our contention that the major problem with (...)

    Popper's Third World: Moral Habits, Moral Habitat and Their Maintenance.Jānis Tālivaldis Ozoliņš - 2010 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 42 (7):742-761.
    If we accept Popper's idea that the human habitat is described in terms of three worlds, and that there are overlaps between these three worlds, our moral actions and values will also be subject to the same kinds of consideration as a repertoire of behaviours exhibited in a physical environment.

    This paper will consider the role of schools, as a particular moral habitat in the formation of moral virtues and how the inculcation of a comprehensive private moral system of beliefs, values and practices leads to public values in a multicultural, pluralist society.

    Creating the Civil Society East and West: Relationality, Responsibility and the Education of the Humane Person.Jānis Tālivaldis Ozoliņš - 2017 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 49 (4).
    A recurring theme in many places concerns the nurturing and maintenance of a civil society that is committed to justice, to human fulfilment and a community that actively pursues the good of all its members. The creation of a civil society where there is respect for persons and a concern for the good of others is an important social aim and though it is not the sole responsibility of educational institutions, they have a crucial role to play in its development.
