This extraordinary book can be read on several levels. Primarily, it is the story of Joseph Jacotot, an exiles French schoolteacher who discovered in an unconventional teaching method that spread panic throughout the learned community of Europe. Knowing no Flemish, Jacotot found himself able to teach in French to Flemish students who knew no French; knowledge, Jacotot concluded, was not necessary to teach, nor explication necessary to learn.

The results of this unusual experiment in pedagogy led him to announce that all people were equally intelligent. The greater part of the book is devoted to a description and analysis of Jacotot’s method, its premises, and perhaps most important its implications for understanding both the learning process and the emancipation that results when that most subtle of hierarchies, intelligence, is overturned.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. This book changed a lot of my ideas about pedagogy. Very great points are made here, I definitely think teachers should at least consider the ideas discussed here. I can’t imagine a better matching of form, content, and timeless relevance. I want to add my voice to the other two reviews. I also want to register my amazement that this book remains in relative obscurity.

Ranciere’s Ignorant Schoolmaster is a serious philosophical work on the question of education and pedagogy that explores the connection between fanciere and emancipatory politics.

As a serious work of philosophy, it is rigorous and a quite demanding read. However, it advances an elegant thesis: Thus, the intellectual emancipation of the students occurs when the holder of knowledge, the teacher, claims ignorance. This book is made more important due to the lack of real books on the philosophy schoklmaster education.

The last serious book was Paulo Freire’s Pedagogy of the Oppressed, written in the late sixties–a book with which Ranciere’s has much affinity. It is strange that education has been drained of philosophy. Especially since Plato saw it as the key to maintain order in the Republic.

Perhaps, philosophical thought on education represents a real danger to the powers that be, so much so that they systematically separated it from philosophy. On a personal note.

I teach Ranciere’s book at the Rwnciere where I am at. You could not believe the amount of controversey it stirs every time. Students, young and old, refuse to accept Ranciere’s thesis that all intelligences are equal. They hold fast to the notion that some minds are superior.

On a brighter note, one student admitted to me that he decided not to become a teacher because of this book. An historical examination of a French educationist after the revolution, this book provides an enlightening introduction to Ranciere’s conceptions of equality and the aesthetics of mutual relationships and communication.


This books gets you thinking hard about perspectives in education. Makes you question everything you believe about education. Good read for educators and researchers. One person found this helpful.

I’m constantly amazed that more people haven’t read this book, or even heard of it; it should be considered among the new classics of Continental political thought. And it is a real book on teaching, all the same, as part of its goal is to evangelize “panecastic” teaching and summarize this general method for teaching. See all 9 reviews.
