Example text

Through the suspension of judgement, there exists the potentiality for new acts of doing and becoming, which renders any act of judgement redundant. A reconsidered view of citizenship education is also connected to the practice of seeing things differently – that is, not to see things in exactly the same way, or not to see things as one would expect to see them. This idea of seeing things differently brings into play the notion that things will present themselves in different and multiple ways, which precludes one from rushing to judgement.

Summoning people to use their intelligence is in fact to remind them that they can see and think for themselves, to prompt them about their abilities and capacities, and that they should not always rely on others to see and think for them – a matter of being answerable to oneself and to others. In other words, what matters is that people’s potentialities are evoked to the extent that they are able to come to their own speech, and their own presence (Biesta, 2011a: 39). 13 CHAPTER 2 This is why an intelligible citizen demands speech, that is, ‘the manifestation of an intelligence that wasn’t aware of itself or that had given up’ (Rancière, 1991: 29).

Instead, we argue that, because actions of a violent nature yield more, and at times more banal, forms of violence – as is evidenced by the inhumane torturing of anti-apartheid activists by the apartheid regime – violence should at all times be abandoned and conditions should be established that negate violence – that is, make it capable of not being or ‘capable of its own impotentiality’ (Agamben, 1999b: 182). What this means is that conditions need to be established that will not only prevent violence from reaching, but also from enacting, its violence.
