Other research activity


Books

 

Liberty and Education: a civic republican approach (2014, Routledge)  

This book takes the thinking of Quentin Skinner, Phillip Pettit and J.G.A. Pocock on republican liberty and explores the way in which this can be used to illuminate educational practice. It argues that republican liberty is distinct from both negative and positive liberty and its emphasis on liberty as non-domination gives the concept of liberty a particularly critical role in contemporary society. The book formulates and expounds the idea that an empire of liberty requires the existence of what are termed ‘liberty-bearing agents’ and shows how education – with a particular emphasis on knowledge - is needed to foster the human powers so that persons can become liberty-bearing.

Conferences

Dr. Hinchliffe  has given papers over the last 10 years to a range of conferences including Philosophy of Education Society (PESGB), British Educational Research Association (BERA), Human Development Capabilities Association (HDCA), the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the International Network of Philosophers of Education (INPE). In addition to this, Geoffrey has also given a number of talks at conferences and seminars on graduate skills and employability.

 

 

Teaching Interests

Geoffrey started to teach philosophy in adult education back in 1995 and continued to do that until 2008. His teaching now falls into two distinct strands:

1)     Contributing to the teaching of educational theory and the history of education for the BA undergraduate programme in Education.

2)    He assists in the development of early careers academics with a particular focus on developing their teaching capabilities.
