Interpretive Pedagogies for Higher Education focuses on providing a humanistic perspective on pedagogy by relating it to the interpretive practices of particular public educators: thinkers and writers whose work has had an immeasurable impact on how we understand and interpret the world and how our understandings and interpretations act on that world. Jon Nixon focuses on the work of four public intellectuals each of whom reaches out to a wide public readership and develops our understanding regarding the nature of interpretation in the everyday world: Hannah Arendt's work on 'representative thinking', John Berger's injunction to 'hold everything dear', Edward Said's notion of 'democratic criticism', and Martha Nussbaum's studies in the intelligence of feeling. These thinkers provide valuable perspectives on the nature and purpose of interpretation in everyday life. The implications of these perspectives for the development of a transformative pedagogy - and for the renewal of an educated public - are examined in relation to the current contexts of higher education within a knowledge society.

Die Universität in Zeiten von Bologna ist seit den späten 1990er Jahren – dem Beginn des einheitlichen Europäischen Hochschulraums – bis heute von vielstimmigen Diskursen begleitet. Der Sammelband bietet sorgfältige Analysen von scheinbar naturgegebenen universitären Strukturen und veranschaulicht konstruktive, innovative und praxisorientierte Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten von Lehr- und Lernkulturen in Zeiten von Bologna. Zentral ist dabei die anspruchsvolle Realisierung des Grundsatzes der Einheit von Forschung und Lehre sowie der Prinzipien des studierendenzentrierten Lehrens und Lernens. Den Beiträgen der AutorInnen – ForscherInnen und Lehrende an verschiedenen europäischen Universitäten (Österreich, Deutschland, Schweiz, United Kingdom) – liegen die friday lectures an der Universität Wien zugrunde. Respondenzen von WissenschafterInnen, Lehrenden und Studierenden der Universität Wien ergänzen die Beiträge, um deren Relevanz für Lehre und Studium auch aus Sicht der Praxis zu prüfen. Mit Beiträgen von Ronald Barnett, Reinhard Brandt, Hans Pechar, Otto Kruse, Karin Reiber, Florian H. Müller, Gabi Reinmann, Jon Nixon, Ruth Becker, Leah Carola Czollek, Gudrun Perko, Wolfgang Nowak, Lee Harvey, Dietmar Chur und Celia Whitchurch.

New Perspectives in Philosophy of Education seeks to build a bridge between philosophical reflection and socio-political action by developing a range of critical discussions in the areas of ethics, politics and religion. This volume brings together established authorities and a new generation of scholars to ask whether philosophy of education can contribute to political and social discourse, or whether it is destined to remain the marginal gadfly of mainstream ideology. The philosophy of education stands in danger of becoming a neglected field at precisely the moment we need to be able to reflect upon the increasingly apparent costs of the technocratic attitude to education. While many of the educational policy discussions of recent years seem far-reaching and radical, critical debate surrounding these initiatives remain largely at a populist level. New Perspectives in Philosophy of Education provides contemporary responses to philosophical issues that bear upon educational studies, policies and practices, contributing to the debate on the role of philosophy of education in an increasingly fractured intellectual milieu.

This book explores what academic leadership in higher education might mean in the cosmopolitan and increasingly globalised 21st century through individual academics' narrative accounts drawn from a range of international contexts. The book shows that academic leadership is key to an individual's development and that it could mean different things in different settings as academics operate across the levels of professional practice, institutional organisation, sector-wide systems and international networks. This book argues for the importance of cosmopolitan perspectives on academic leadership which are developed from the particularities of local and everyday situated experience. Part I of the book explores key theoretical perspectives; Part II provides first-hand accounts from the contributors of their own development as academic leaders; and Part III discusses some of the implications for those with responsibility for academic development and for all those concerned with developing the qualities necessary for leadership practices.

This book provides an introduction to Hans-Georg Gadamer’s thinking and shows how it might inform our own thinking about education as a lifelong process of engaging with one another and with the wider world. He insisted on the supreme importance of prior learning, but also on the unpredictability of human understanding and on the possibility of new and unforeseeable beginnings. Having lived through the catastrophe of two world wars, he became an important voice in the debate on the future of a reunified Germany and the role of the university in shaping the values and outlook of the new Europe. His work is of immense significance for all those involved in the education of future generations. 'In Gadamer: The Hermeutical Imagination, Jon Nixon has pulled off quite a feat. In his customary lucid, accessible and dialogical style, we are treated to a masterly tour that both opens the complex thinking of Hans-Georg Gadamer and draws out its implications for our understanding of education. In the process, a strong critique emerges of contemporary instrumental approaches to education. Many will assuredly gain much from this enjoyable text, both those interested in Gadamer as such and those working in the philosophy of education.' Ronald Barnett, Emeritus Professor of Higher Education, UCL Institute of Education, UK ‘This book simultaneously invites the reader to engage with the transformative potential of education and provokes the reader to imagine an educational landscape that values freedom, democracy and authenticity. Jon Nixon skilfully and eloquently draws the reader into the philosophies, life and legacy of Hans-Goerg Gadamer, a key thinker of the 20th century. Meticulously researched, this original study offers a biographical insight as well as critical commentary on Gadamer’s contribution to wider educational debates. An impressive contribution to the field.’ Tanya Fitzgerald, Professor of History of Education, La Trobe University, Australia ‘Gadamer: The Hermeneutical Imagination provides an excellent introduction to Gadamer's key ideas. Jon Nixon draws his readers into a conversation with Gadamer, inviting them to imagine the possibility of applying Gadamer's hermeneutical philosophy to their own educational practice. It is essential reading for all those who have an interest in – and commitment to – the future of education.’ Feng Su, Senior Lecturer in Education, Liverpool Hope University, UK

Die Entwicklung der EU wird oft als Verfallsgeschichte erzählt: Aus einem visionären Projekt wurde ein technokratisches Monstrum; angesichts der Eurokrise scheint die Stunde des kollektiven Bonapartismus gekommen zu sein, der den Kontinent mit einem Austeritätsregime überzieht. Hauke Brunkhorst präsentiert eine andere Lesart: Wie Dr. Jekyll und Mr. Hyde sind Vision und Technokratie aufeinander bezogen, die utopischen Anfänge sind in Gesetzen konserviert, der Europäische Gerichtshof stärkt die Rechte der Unionsbürger. Das europäische Projekt bleibt ein offener Prozess, der erneut in eine emanzipatorische Richtung gelenkt werden kann – etwa durch eine Mobilisierung der hochqualifizierten, aber prekär beschäftigen jungen Menschen in Spanien, Griechenland und anderen Mitgliedsstaaten der EU.

Der Skandal Der Vielfalt

Der Bau von Moscheen, das Tragen von Kopftüchern in Schulen, das jüdische und muslimische Beschneidungsritual - in den Debatten, die erregt über diese Praktiken geführt werden, erscheinen "fremde" Kulturen und Religionen oft als bedrohend, ja skandalös. Dieser Haltung steht das politische Konzept des Multikulturalismus gegenüber, das für Schutz und Anerkennung kultureller Unterschiede durch Staat und Gesellschaft eintritt. In der politischen Theorie wie in der breiten Öffentlichkeit löst dieser Ansatz heute aber vielfach Unbehagen aus. Der Sozialwissenschaftler Volker M. Heins, der viele Jahre in Kanada, den USA, Israel und Indien gelebt hat, fragt nach den Ursachen dieses Unbehagens. In seinem gut lesbaren Überblick über die internationale Multikulturalismusdebatte zeichnet er die Fortschritte und Rückschläge bei der Auseinandersetzung nach, die in den letzten Jahrzehnten über kulturelle Vielfalt geführt wurde. Seine These lautet, dass der Streit um den Multikulturalismus - um religiöse Symbole, Sprachkompetenz von Migranten, Import internationaler Konflikte, Chancen auf dem Arbeitsmarkt - grundlegende Fragen von Identität, Differenz und Solidarität berührt, die weder im Nationalstaat noch im vereinten Europa gelöst worden sind.
