18:00 [18:00] Yaron Golan: 19th-Century Radical Socialist Education (ext event)
The Lost Ideas of 19th-Century Radical Socialist Education: From “Human Nature” to Culture-Building Yaron Golan Details will be sent on the day to people who have registered via Eventbrite. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-lost-ideas-of-19th-century-radical-socialist-education-tickets-98001979559 Our May Open Research Forum is on the topic of Co-operative Character and will be presented by Yaron Golan, Manchester Metropolitan University. Early Co-operators were among the first in Britain to articulate a science of human nature and a developmental psychology, and extrapolate pedagogical practices form them. Some of their ideas were uniquely radical, challenging the orthodoxy of the day, which viewed human beings as essentially self-interested at best, or at worst innately wicked and in need of disciplining. Yaron will be talking about what some of these lost ideas can help us rethink current hegemonic views of human nature and economic theories, as well as discussing the more problematic aspects of these old ideas and the need to reinvent them. About Vaughan Open Research Forum (https://vaughan.coop/) Vaughan Open Research Forum is series of talks, workshops and interactive sessions which are open to anyone who is curious and wants to find out more.
