Nohl, Durkheim, and Mead: three different types of “History of Education”


Oelkers, Jürgen (2004). Nohl, Durkheim, and Mead: three different types of “History of Education”. Studies in Philosophy & Education, 23(5-6):347-366.

Abstract

Historiography of education is not only a question of construction but also of selection. In 19th century "history of education” was typically a genre of "great educators”, mostly male and only marginally female. This construct is influential up to now, at least in popular contexts of educational reasoning. The article discusses in the introductory section problems of selection of names and meanings within history of education, and then three types of historiographical writing that are not only concerned with "great educators” but have larger Philosophical impact. The first type is Herman Nohl's history of German progressive education, the second one is Emile Durkheim's history of Higher Education in France, and the third one is George Herbert Mead's Movements of Thought in 19th Century. The article compares them and discusses their implications for further development of historical writing in education
