  1. On the Platonic Pedagogical Methodology: An Alternative to the Aristotelian Theory of Education.Alkis Kotsonis - 2021 - Ethics and Education 16 (4):464-477.

    This article turns to the neglected pedagogical concept of ingenium in order to address some shortcomings of the admiration–emulation model of Linda Zabzebski’s influential exemplarist moral theory. I will start by introducing the problem of the admiration-emulation model by way of a fictional example. I will then briefly outline the concept of ingenium such as it appears in a Renaissance context, looking particularly at the pedagogical writings of Juan Luis Vives. This will set the stage for the next part, looking (...)
