In this book, based on his doctoral thesis, Simon Ceder sets out to articulate a posthuman theory of educational relationality and develop concepts that will be of use to researchers, students and teachers engaged in thinking with education from posthuman perspectives. Ceder’s approach is firmly theoretical, and he admits himself that moving from philosophical considerations to applying the ideas in the classroom is hard, as “[t]here is no available language for studying relationality and my mind is impregnated with individualistic and entity-based ideas” (p.7). While some readers will feel that Ceder provides limited linkages to specific educational practices, the clarity of language and ideas presented may prove to be a valuable enabler for others to move this work forward, and the book’s structure ensures a readable but comprehensive mapping of his research process.
