Testimony, Holocaust Education and Making the Unthinkable Thinkable
Thu 19 January 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
Seminar by Professor Judith Suissa (UCL Institute of Education)
A great deal of philosophical work has explored the complex conceptual intersection between ethics and epistemology in the context of issues of testimony and belief, and much of this work has significant educational implications. Ihis paper, I discuss a troubling example of a case of testimony that seems to pose a problem for some established ways of thinking about these issues and that, in turn, suggests some equally troubling educational conclusions.
