Ideology, Education, and the Angel of History

Kaustuv Roy


This paper argues that ideology implicitly implies the possibility of the non-ideological, and even though the critical discourses no longer seriously consider an “outside” of ideology, it is nonetheless essential to do so. Also, from the pedagogic point of view, it is entirely unsatisfactory to decline consideration of the non-ideological or the transcendent. If all of education is ideological then the question comes up: how do we envision a liberatory moment? In view of this, the argument here offers a praxis of dialectical tensions that through the clash of paradigms offers what it pedagogically claims to be a non-ideological moment.
