Book Description

This book is the first of its kind to critically examine the philosophy of Bernard Stiegler from the perspective of the philosophy of education.

The editors of this book firmly believe that in the coming years Stiegler’s philosophy will assume increasing importance and influence in both digital studies and the philosophy of education as his thought is a prism through which to understand how we live and work, and a means to anticipate what the future may hold for us all in the time of the Anthropocene. They are of the view that Stiegler’s work will have a permanent impact on the intellectual terrain of the 21st century as his majestic conceptual architectonic will shape political, social and pedagogical debates in the coming decades. With this in mind, the contributors of this book take up his gauntlet to understand the risks and opportunities of the digital pharmakon and its impact on the educational milieu.

The chapters in this book were originally published as a special issue of Educational Philosophy and Theory.

Reviews

"Bradley and Kennedy’s collaboration on Stiegler as a philosopher of education brings together thinkers from the US, Australia, Cyprus, England, Finland, Ireland, Japan and South Korea as a joint response to the proletarianization – or de-individuation – of education. I enjoyed the fact that the collection includes established academics, doctoral students and practitioners, and that it draws on the full range of Stiegler’s work, including his most recent work and some work yet to be translated in English. The edited collection is the first book to focus on educational thought and the philosophy of this important and topical thinker."

Sean Sturm, philosopher of education, University of Auckland, New Zealand

 

"Bradley and Kennedy’s seminal contribution to the philosophy of education will no doubt pioneer a new field of research applying Bernard Stiegler’s work to the stark realities confronting young people in the 21st century in the hope of finding pedagogical inventions and tools to respond to our collective crisis."

David R. Cole, philosopher of education, Western Sydney University, Australia

 

"This volume ambitiously locates and illuminates Stiegler’s philosophy and critique of technology within the territory of education and reveals how his philosophy links with the praxis of disce doce (learning to teach). The editors’ intention is timely and is a superb academic contribution to the study of Stiegler’s philosophy and the philosophy of education. Trailblazing and thrilling."

Alex Taek-Gwang Lee, philosopher, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, South Korea

 

"The purpose of this timely book, the application of Bernard Stiegler’s ideas to pedagogy and philosophy of education, is a most welcome addition to Stiegler studies. Stiegler himself hoped that the significance and consequences of his ideas would become most salient in educational reform. The journal I edit at the University of Guam, Micronesian Studies, has been committed to publishing and reviewing Stiegler scholarship for some years now, and we look forward to reviewing this book as soon as it leaves the press."

C. S. Schreiner, Professor of English and Philosophy, University of Guam

 

"Bernard Stiegler implores us to create a new society, one that is centred around learning. The authors in this collection provide the Stieglerian tools for how to achieve the models required to realise new ways for learning and working together. Required reading for all interested in the political possibilities of education, technology, and creative philosophy."

Felicity Colman, Professor of Media Arts, University of the Arts, London, United Kingdom
