Philosophy of Education
Values, Ideologies and Social Contexts of Education
Faculty of Education and Psychology
I am interested in rethinking our ideas of intelligence. My claim is that education that aims at increasing intelligent action often fails to do so, as it sets out from a flawed idea of intelligence as a property of individuals. I ground my research on the theories of the pragmatist philosopher John Dewey.
I am part of the research groups TheorEd (Theory and philosophy of education), SAFE (Social justice at the focus of education) and EMBED (Embodied education) and a member of the SCOPE-collective.
