472) What is most interesting about this characterisation is the implication that philosophy of education ever was a ‘discipline with a distinct purpose and a clearly established agenda’. As noted, the very idea of ‘philosophy of education’ as a distinct discipline is an artefact of a particular set of philosophical and institutional conditions, ones more typical of certain Englishspeaking contexts. Beyond this, the idea that this discipline ever had a unified purpose and agenda fits only certain brief periods of its development (notably, during the period of progressivism and the period of analytic dominance)—yet even these periods were characterised by a good deal of internal friction and resistance to such unifying trends, and were followed by periods of reaction that explicitly challenged the boundaries established to define what truly counted as philosophy of education and what did not (Greene, 1991, 1995; Kohli, 1995).
