Conformity, not freedom. Both tend to explicate instead of liberate, according to Rancierre.

Argument reigns. Narrative and the imagination are in the back seat. Rancierre is uncompromising, though, in response. Only stultification. Schools teach for conformity. We are not all alike, Rancierre says; human variety is the nature of the world.

Learning to be emancipatory has to be free of prescribed curricula. I tend to look at this position as not literally true, but as a metaphor.

As he says elsewhere, everyone is equally intelligent or we are differently intelligent, or all intelligent in our own ways. The point as I take it is for the teacher to embrace humility, or to approach students democratically, not with arrogance but willing to listen to students sometimes and learn from them.

To be an ignorant schoolmaster is to be a humble one, not starting with an assumption of the ignorance and inequality of the students. They can be bored, passive. But the solution in part is to keep honoring students and help them to engage in ways and ideas they see as fruitful and interesting.

Rancierre takes a pragmatist position, not one outlined in advance; his is responsive teaching, reflective, inquiry-based. Freedom is key to learning. But is it always practical? Can you learn organic chemistry, for instance, completely through inquiry, through answering your own questions? He thinks politics are basically futile. But how can you change the world? Not through mere individual freedom, surely. Or maybe he is implying we have to become free and self-efficacious human beings before we become citizens.

But a teacher has things to contribute obviously, and should be part of the conversation, hopefully guiding it in useful ways. Holding back may be a good thing in some conversations, but complete silence on the part of the teacher seems stupid, a denial of experience.

Are they all born good vs. Has he ever taught seventeen last period sophomore boys, as I have? This sounds familiar and somewhat escapist to me. Possibly selfish. Starting humbly with a view of everyone as fundamentally equal or equally deserving of rights sounds like a good approach especially in this vicious American political and educational environment.

The Ignorant Schoolmaster: Five Lessons in Intellectual Emancipation

A French critical theorist and philosophical troll in a world of ivory tower intellectualism, bourgeois academics, and Jean Baudrillard, Ranciere stands out as a kind of anti-philosopher. A University of Paris professor and former student of Louis Althusser, Ranciere has committed his intellectual project to destroying its foundations. While that may sound a lot like Baudrillard , who wants to remind everyone that everything is simulation and nothing matters, or Nietzsche who attacks the foundations of Western metaphysics, Ranciere takes a different approach. Namely, by accusing every other philosopher of being a shitty Platonist and hating democracy.

The Ignorant Schoolmaster Explained

Translator Kristen Ross writes: "The very act of storytelling, an act that presumes in its interlocutor an equality of intelligence rather than an inequality of knowledge, posits equality, just as the act of explication posits inequality" xxii. The book is equally relevant to history as to philosophy of education; in the U. Main Concepts[ edit ] Stultifying Master vs. Emancipatory Master The explicator, "having thrown a veil of ignorance over everything that is to be learned, he appoints himself to the task of lifting it" Only by concealing knowledge from the student is the explicator able to teach it. This makes the student dependent on the master.
