Örebro University, School of Music, Theatre and Art.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-5443-837X
2007 (English)In: Philosophy of Music Education Review, ISSN 1063-5734, E-ISSN 1543-3412, Vol. 15, no 1, p. 37-52Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Oivind Varkoy discusses instrumentalism as a trend in educational politics and pedagogical thinking. Instrumentalism implies looking upon both school subjects and humans as instruments, as tools or means for reaching another goal or end. The discussion is related to philosophy of music education by focusing on aspects of philosophies of humankind, the idea of forming the child versus the idea of free growth, and the humanistic tradition of dialectics. To link the philosophical discussion of instrumentalism to music education in a more practical way, the author focuses on the discussion of assessment of knowledge in music. Is it for instance possible for a music educator to accept the idea of measuring musical knowledge by means of standardized tests without having some problems sailing under the flag of pedagogical humanism?
