    Fitting Religious Life Into the Life of Schools. James and Rorty in Conversation.Bianca Thoilliez - 2019 - Ethics and Education 14 (2):157-170.
    ABSTRACTThe article investigates which epistemological considerations justify how religious life fits into the school life, and examines the debate on the participation of religiosity in the education system.

    John Dewey’s Legacy and Spanish Pedagogy.Bianca Thoilliez - 2016 - European Journal of Pragmatism and American Philosophy 8 (1).
    Perhaps one of the most characteristic aspects of Dewey’s career is that the extent and variety of his work, not to mention his own longevity and his restlessly inquisitive personality, pose a problem to any systematic study of his legacy. At the same time, this “problem” represents the hallmark of his work. Furthermore, Dewey’s works and opinions were propagated and spread in many different formats across many different countries, which makes it only more problematic to study his works, their spread (...)
