Title: PHILOSOPHICAL PedR


1
PHILOSOPHICAL PedR
  • George MacDonald Ross
  • Director, PRS Subject Centre
  • York, 3rd November 2005

2
Opportunities for PedR
  • No publication forum before 2002
  • Little scholarship to build on
  • Limited funding for research
  • Little encouragement to bid (RAE)
  • Few successful bids (e.g. FDTL5)
  • Catch-22

3
Challenges and Barriers
  • Only a social science research model accepted by
    funders
  • Philosophers repelled by generic PedR
  • Need to articulate how philosophical research
    methods can contribute to PedR (subject-specific
    and generic)

4
Philosophical Research
  • Conceptual analysis
  • Evaluation of reasoning
  • Detecting hidden assumptions
  • Distinguishing what requires thought from what
    requires facts
  • Articulating theoretical structures
  • Ethics

5
The Role of the Academy
  • Co-operation between cognate subjects
  • Two-way flow between the generic and the
    subject-specific
  • Summaries of generic outcomes
  • Recognition of subject-specific contribution to
    the generic
  • Influence funders of PedR (e.g. RAE)
