A venue for scholarly work on ethics and education

The journal Ethics and Education might be a good venue for some of our readers to publish teaching-related scholarship.  I don't recognize any philosophers on the editorial board, but it's a peer reviewed journal "which aims to stimulate discussion and debate around the ethical dimensions of education." It seems half ethics journal/half philosophy of education.

A selection of paper titles that caught my eye suggest the journal's orientation:

  • "Challenging Dutch holocaust education"
  • "Parenting in a technological age"
  • "Respect-due and respect-earned: Negotiating student-teacher relationships"
  • "Learning from Seneca: A Stoic perspective on the art of living and education"
  • "Multiple intelligences, judgment, and the realization of value"
  • "Elusive rivalry? Conceptions of the philosophy of education"
  • "Teaching business ethics: the effectiveness of common pedagogical practices in developing students' moral judgment competence"


  1. Thanks Michael, this is very useful!

  3. Michael: 'I don't recognize any philosophers on the editorial board'

    I don't work in philosophy of education, but I'm closely related to someone who is, and the names of quite a lot of the folks on the editorial board seemed fairly familiar from that world.

    (The UK ones tend to have posts in education departments, rather than philosophy departments, but would, I think, see themselves as philosophers.)

    And fwiw, Christopher Winch is, I believe, the son of philosopher of social science/Wittgenstein scholar Peter Winch.

  4. Bill, yes: that I don't recognize them speaks more to my ignorance than to their credentials!
