    Lessons From a Master: Montaigne’s Pedagogy of Conversation.Kevin Williams & Patrick Williams - 2017 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 49 (3):253-263.
    There remains much to be learned from searching exploration of the great authors who have meditated on education. Montaigne is one such thinker and this essay endeavors to draw together the strands of his pedagogy and to demonstrate how they gain purchase in the business of teaching and learning. The article also proposes to supplement his vision with practical examples from fiction and autobiography. Perhaps the most striking theme is the need to be able to decentre from the comfort zone (...)

    Work, Play and Language Learning: Some Implications for Curriculum Policy of Michael Oakeshott’s Philosophy of Education.Kevin Williams - 2019 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 52 (5):535-548.
    This paper applies Oakeshott’s distinction between work and play to his philosophy of language education. The first part explores his critique of the vocational rationale for learning foreign languages and his affirmation of the intrinsic value or playful character of the activity. The second part of the article endeavours to give practical content to Oakeshott’s vision of studying language for the pleasure of the activity by drawing on sources that reflect the character of the experience in terms of playfulness.

    Rethinking 'Learning' in Higher Education: Viewing the Student as 'Social Actor'.Kevin 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.

    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.

  9. Education and the Voice of Michael Oakeshott.Kevin Williams - 2007 - Imprint Academic.
    The work of Michael Oakeshott has retained a striking currency in philosophical discourse about education. This is hardly surprising in view of his influence on Paul Hirst and Richard Peters, two philosophers whose work had an enormous impact on educational thinking and practice in the English-speaking world. And, although much of the detail in educational debate may change, the fundamental underlying concerns regarding the conception of the person, the nature of knowledge and the moral life and their expression in educational (...)

    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.

    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.
