Western Marxism, the New Marxist Reading and Educational Connections
The article attempts to bring together variants of German pedagogical Marx reception and three central historical readings of Marx’s theory. After an overview of the interpretations of Traditional Marxism, Western Marxism, and the Neue Marx-Lektüre, it is shown that the pedagogical reception is predominantly connected with Western Marxism. It is argued that perspectives of a critical pedagogy that takes up insights from the currently popular reading of the Neue Marx-Lektüre are yet to be developed. Some apparently crucial aspects are discussed in this respect.
The Resilient Self? A Vulnerability Theoretic Attempt Concerning a Pedagogical ›Real Fiction‹
The article emphasizes current social science discourses in which different vulnerable subject types are invoked. It is based on Alain Ehrenberg’s thesis that the change of subjectivation forms can be demonstrated by the change of dominant disease patterns. Finally, the now prominent ideal type of the resilient self is subjected to critical reflection and put into relation with postfordist modes of production.
