Democracy and education: about the future of a problem


Oelkers, Jürgen (2000). Democracy and education: about the future of a problem. Studies in Philosophy & Education, 19(1-2):3-19.

Abstract

In 20th century's European theory of education there was little interest in philosophy ofdemocracy. John Dewey'sDemocracy and Education was translated in nearly every European language but did not become the center of discussion. Even "radical education” was much more childcentered than open to radical questions of political democracy. This article discusses the problem in two respects, first the tension between neo-liberalism's concept of individuality and public education, and second the future problems of a theory of "democratic education”after Dewey. The aim is to overcome traditional European dualisms like that of "citizen”or "man” i.e. to pave the way for a post-Rousseauian theory of education
