The Ignorant Schoolmaster – Five lessons in intellectual emancipation.[Research paper] by Marine Bikard

2012-08-03

Marine Bikard was part of the “Alternative Management” third year program in HEC in 2010. Having a passion for social sciences, she would like to use their methods and concepts to improve the action of companies.

Through the biography of Joseph Jacotot, a 19th century revolutionary who went into exile, Rancière reminds us the constantly renewed postulate of our political and pedagogical system: intelligences are unevenly distributed and the superior ones should pull upward less smart intelligences. According to Rancière, we should base our reasoning on the reverse postulate, and assume that all intelligences are of the same kind. The ignorant schoolmaster reveals to others their ability to make progress by themselves, instead of stupifying them in trying to transmit a knowledge that everybody should be able to get by himself. Like freedom, education is given, but taken.
