Derrida, deconstruction and education : ethics of pedagogy and research
Part of the Educational Philosophy and Theory Special Issues series
Derrida has not received the attention he deserves in the field of education, yet his critique of Western metaphysics indicates that deconstruction is nothing other than a new pedagogy of the text.
This book takes as a premise that Derrida is a profound educational thinker, who from the very beginning concerned himself with questions of pedagogy.
Written by a team of international scholars, it comprises a series of original essays, exploring the significance of Derrida's thought for education, pedagogy, and the ethics of teaching and research.
Each scholar addresses in a provocative and inventive way, the unconventional readings that deconstruction engenders regarding some of the most basic philosophical questions of teaching and of learning.
