Democracy in Dialogue, Dialogue in Democracy. The Politics of Dialogue in Theory and Practice. 2015, 177-192
My ambition with this chapter is to throw some lights on the close link between “democracy” and “education” and their mutual interdependence. I hope to do so by performing a three-step philosophical analysis of an event linked to the terrorist attack in Norway July 22, 2011. By drawing on the political philosophies of John Dewey, Chantal Mouffe and Alain Badiou, I read this event to illustrate democracy and education as a way of life, an ideal, and an outlook.
