Short Interviews with Scholars

Working in Philosophy and Education

September 2016: Rene Arcilla (New York University)

This month, we are treated to a rich conversation with Rene Arcilla (New York University). In our chat, we discuss the meaning of life, the value of friendship, and philosophy for amateurs. Arcilla is Professor of Philosophy of Education and the author of For the Love of Perfection: Richard Rorty and Liberal Education and Mediumism: A Philosophical Reconstruction of Modernism for Existential Learning.

Our Format


PIPEline is a monthly, short-form interview program with a focus on philosophy and education. The program poses a minimal set of core questions about: 

The personal/academic development of participating scholars,

Their thoughts about the current state of the field, and

Their sense of emerging trends or developing questions.  

These rather straightforward lines of exploration serve our general audience by providing a relatively blank canvas upon which to depict our guests. Similarly, our host endeavors to melt into the background of these presentations by providing only small clarifying questions in the service of our audience better focusing upon and understanding the work and scholarly trajectory of our guests.

This collection ought to be of interest to many groups


For Students

Students of education are often quite perplexed by the idea of the philosophical study of education. This series aims to reduce that mystification by introducing students to current figures and ideas in these traditions. Additionally, as each interview offers fresh questions of study, students may see PIPEline as a pathway towards their own future work in philosophy of education.

For Scholars

Whether one works on philosophical questions of education, non-philosophical research in education, other topics in philosophy, or none of the above, the program provides an introduction to thinkers and ideas that may be generative to one's ongoing research or teaching. Listening to each episode is an invitation to engage with the centrally important questions posed by philosophy of education.

For a Sense of the FielD

This compilation represents a historical archive of some of the contemporary contours of work in philosophy of education. While important for a number of reasons, this documentary component of the project records more than the scholarly ideas of our guests; it depicts perspectives of persons that may not always be seen in the body of journal articles and books that are presumed to define a researcher's career. Though not full portraits, these profiles form a unique view of a field.
