Latest Issue of Philosophical Inquiry in Education

Dear Readers,

We would like to draw your attention to the publication of the latest issue
of Philosophical Inquiry in Education (formerly Paideusis).

Hot off the presses, this issue features a symposium on Eamonn Callan’s
timely and provocative new article “Education in Safe and Unsafe Spaces”.
The important distinction Callan draws between ‘dignity safety’ and
‘intellectual safety’ is sure to helpfully influence debates on campuses
across North America and beyond, where clashes about what constitute
appropriate university restrictions on campus speech rage on in the wake of
high profile controversies at Yale, University of Chicago, Stanford and
elsewhere.  Along with 3 substantive response essays, Callan’s essay is a
notable example of philosophy of education as an intervention in issues of
broader public relevance.

The new issue of PIE also features several articles that address a wide
range of educational issues from a philosophical perspective, provocative
shorter pieces in our ‘Dialogue and Debate’ section, and reviews of several
new books in the field.  This issue also contains the second instalment of
our ‘From the Archives’ section, with “Conceptual Finesse,” an article by
Robin Barrow from the very first issue of the journal.

Check out the new issue at

And remember to keep PIE in mind when you are submitting your new work for
peer reviewed publication!
