    Assistant Professor

    Education Studies
    Philosophy of Education, Educational Thought

    My primary interests are in the philosophy of education and the philosophy of language, especially that of Wittgenstein. My current research focuses mainly on the classic and fundamental problem of education concerning the autonomy-heteronomy opposition. I am working on this problem through the consideration of the normative and creative aspects of language use, the linguistic characteristics of educational communication, and the authority and the ethics of the teacher.
