Descripción

Language: English . Brand New Book. This work brings the thought of Emmanuel Levinas into play in attempting to understand the responsibility of a group of educators of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal heritage who work amidst the tensions of ethno-cultural difference in an inner city public high school. The concept of ?welcoming? that is born in the words of Levinas, and that is further fashioned into an interpretation framework, while relying on the writings of Jacque Derrida and Sharon Todd, is employed in this philosophical hermeneutic. I suggest that Levinas? philosophy refashioned as welcoming, can be helpful in prompting educators (and others) to think differently about responsibility and therefore to position themselves to better enact their responsibility. This work is potentially helpful, not as a how to guide relating a code of ethics, but in assuring people, that what is ethical is not necessarily defined within the confines of convention, legal or social codes and rules, or cultural norms, but rather in one s attentiveness to others and attentiveness to one s attentiveness, where a person realizes the welcoming nature of responsibility and what is actually demanded of a person in being responsible.
