Towards a cosmopolitan orientation in the classroom
2012 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Is it possible to develop a next step in research juxtaposing "curriculum as cosmopolitan inheritance with recent curriculum inquiry on educating the human capacity for critical dialogue and deliberation", David Hansen (2008) asks and clarifies: "Can the willingness and the skills to deliberate critically across difference be conceived as an ongoing world inheritance?" (Hansen 2008 p. 307). If we interpret deliberation / deliberative communication "as an endeavour to ensure that each individual takes a stand by listening, deliberating, seeking arguments and evaluating, while at the same time there is a collective effort to find values and norms on which everyone can agree" (cf. Englund 2006 p. 505), we can make an attempt to elaborate and analyse the preconditions for what we could call a cosmopolitan orientation.
