Studying with a teacher: Education beyond the logic of progress
21 February 2024, 5:30 pm–7:15 pm
Join this event to hear Piotr Zamojski present a thought-experiment aimed at thinking of education beyond the logic of progress.
This event is free.
Room 828UCL IOE20 Bedford WayLondonWC1H 0AL
He will reconstruct the entanglement of the modern idea of progress (in Francis Bacon and Comenius) and education, while tracking down the coupling of obedience and conquest at work.
Piotr will suggest a link between progress and of emancipation – acknowledging the difficulty of imagining education outside progress. He will then suggest that when studying with a teacher, the logic of progress is deactivated.
This in-person event will be particularly useful for those interested in the philosophy of education, educational theory and the idea of progress.
