    The Uncanny Challenge of Self-Cultivation in the Anthropocene.Jan Varpanen, Antti Saari, Katri Jurvakainen & Johanna Kallio - 2022 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 41 (3):345-362.
    Self-cultivation—taking pedagogical action to educate oneself—is an integral part of non-formal adult education. Ever since Greek antiquity, it has been a central ingredient in the western philosophical and educational tradition. However, we argue that the global challenges that have emerged in the present era of the ecological crisis call for a new kind of understanding of this basic educational phenomenon. Based in particular on recent work in dark ecology and its central concept of the ‘uncanny’, we outline a few key (...)

    Knowledge Without Contexts? A Foucauldian Analysis of E.L. Thorndike’s Positivist Educational Research.Antti Saari - 2016 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 35 (6):589-603.
    The article discusses the allegedly decontextualized and ahistorical traits in positivist educational research and curriculum by examining its emergence in early twentieth-century empirical education. Edward Lee Thorndike’s educational psychology is analyzed as a case in point. It will be shown that Thorndike’s positivist educational psychology stressed the need to account for the reality of schooling and to produce knowledge of the actual contexts of education. Furthermore, a historical analysis informed by Michel Foucault’s history of the human sciences reveals that there (...)

    A picture speaks a thousand words? Vision, visuality and authorization.Bernadette Baker & Antti Saari - 2020 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 52 (2):159-169.
    Images of brains circulate today as rationales for decision-making and selectivity in policies, curriculum, preservice teacher education and inservice professional development. The excitement over brain-based research, its visual reach and authorizing role accompanies longstanding debates in which the status attributed to biology, physiology and allied psychological approaches has been considered prejudicial. This article traces a series of dislocations in the linkages forged between discourses of vision and epistemic authorization, and how they still inhere in contemporary debates over brain imaging. The (...)

    Flashpoint epistemology.Bernadette Baker, Antti Saari, Liang Wang & Hannah Tavares (eds.) - 2023 - New York: Routledge.
    The 21st century is steeped in claims to interconnection, technological innovation, and new affective intensities amid challenges to the primacy and centrality of 'the human'. Flashpoint epistemology attends to the lived difficulties that arise in teaching, policymaking, curriculum and research among continuous practices of differentiation, and for which there is no pre-existing template for judgment, resolution or action. Flashpoint Epistemology Volume 1 examines contemporary collisions and reworkings of cultural-political issues in education through arts and humanities-based approaches. How and whether lines (...)

    Strange loops, oedipal logic, and an apophatic ecology: Reimagining critique in environmental education.Antti Saari & John Mullen - 2022 - Educational Philosophy and Theory 54 (3):228-237.
    Bruno Latour (2004) claims that modernist critique, the kind that removes the false veils of ideology, ‘has run out of steam’. Despite its theoretical variety, it often consists in pointing out how...
