New Article on Philosophy of Environmental Education

There are currently two broad forms of critique undergirding environmental education theories: the first is one of subtraction from perceived reality as it seeks to reveal and remove illusions and ideologies, while the other takes the inverse form of adding to reality in the form of investigating how matter comes to matter. This article suggests a third form that explores the paradoxical and uncanny aspects of ecological awareness and assumes an apophatic, self-negating form, which short-circuits and relinquishes all attempts at epistemological closure

”Strange Loops, Oedipal Logic, and an Apophatic Ecology: Reimagining Critique in Environmental Education” by POISED researcher Antti Saari and John Mullen (University of Michigan) is recently published in Educational Philosophy and Theory. You can read the open access article here.
