    Vision and Elusiveness in Philosophy of Education: R. S. Peters on the Legacy of Michael Oakeshott.Kevin Williams - 2009 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 43 (1):223-240.
    Despite his elusiveness on important issues, there is much in Michael Oakeshott's educational vision that Richard Peters quite rightly wishes to endorse. The main aim of this essay is, however, to consider Peters' justifiable critique of three features of Oakeshott's work. These are (1) the rigidity of his distinction between vocational and university education, (2) the lack of clarity and accuracy in his philosophy of teaching and learning, especially the under-conceptualisation of the role of example in teaching, (3) the over-emphasis (...)

    The Religious Dimension of Cultural Initiation.Kevin Williams - 2004 - Ethical Perspectives 11 (4):228-237.
    This article considers the role of religion in general cultural initiation. The thrust of the argument pursued here is that, even in secular environments, schooling should offer some level of initiation into religious sensibility. Without this initiation, young people will not be in a position to engage with the religious dimension of general culture.

    Medical Samaritans: Is There A Duty To Treat?Kevin Williams - 2001 - Oxford Journal of Legal Studies 21 (3):393-413.
    This article argues that doctors and other health care professionals should be obliged to provide emergency treatment to those in immediate and nearby need regardless of the absence of any prior professional relationship between the parties. It concludes that the common law should accordingly recognize a specific duty of ‘medical rescue’. It examines some of the conventional objections to affirmative duties, finding them unconvincing in this particular context. It draws on two recent appellate decisions, one Australian and the other English, (...)

    Faith and the Nation: Education and Religious Identity in the Republic of Ireland.Kevin Williams - 1999 - British Journal of Educational Studies 47 (4):317 - 331.
    Through an examination of selected documents, this article explores the role which the Irish state attributed to education in promoting the Christian, specifically Catholic, identity of its young citizens. The essay also examines the evidence of a desire to distance the state from a direct role in reinforcing the religious dimensions of cultural identity and of an endeavour to reconcile respect for the nation's Christian heritage with respect for other versions of human self-understanding.

    Rethinking 'Learning' in Higher Education: Viewing the Student as 'Social Actor'.Kevin F. Williams - 2012 - Journal of Critical Realism 11 (3):296-323.
    A number of authors from different theoretical perspectives have called for new interdisciplinary ways of considering learning within the higher education context. Peter Jarvis’s lifelong learning perspective offers a viable alternative, but lacks a strong theory of the person as self, agent and actor. In response I propose that Margaret Archer’s realist social theory has a particular utility for bridging ‘common dualisms’ as part of an interdisciplinary enquiry into higher education learning, and offers a strong theory of the person.

    Education and Human Diversity: The Ethics of Separate Schooling Revisited.Kevin Williams - 1998 - British Journal of Educational Studies 46 (1):26 - 39.
    This article reviews the arguments in the separate schools debate in an attempt to present a view of the matter which would be acceptable in a liberal democracy. Although the case for common or inclusive schools is treated sympathetically, the burden of the argument is that public sponsorship of separate schools can be defended once certain conditions are met.
