 Issue 4 - The Democratic Paideia project   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-23)
Any effort to establish paideia within today’s schools would generate a radical inconsistency within the present institutional framework, threatening the elites’ power to reproduce themselves and the heteronomous social relations upon which they are based.
However, both these two aims of paideia i.e paideia as civic schooling, cultivating students’ capacity for “self-reflective activity and deliberation” on the path to autonomy, and paedeia as personal training presuppose an enlargement of understanding through Socratic questioning.
In our view, the selection of materials for Socratic dialogue appropriate to a democratic paideia, particularly during the stages of emancipatory education prior to the successful transition to an authentically inclusive democracy demands more discerning criteria to be determined by individuals in their lived cultural and historical contexts.
