Abstract

Educational questions, whether in policy or in practice and thus in educational research, make assumptions which are philosophical in nature ? in values, theory of knowledge, philosophy of mind, social philosophy and so on. The paper illustrates this through several examples of educational research, showing how, in the absence of philosophical questioning, the intelligence is often bewitched by the misuse of language, thereby invalidating soGcalled educational research.
