Barthes's Heretical Teaching

Barthes's Heretical Teaching

(p.27) 1 Barthes's Heretical Teaching
Roland Barthes at the Collège de France
Liverpool University Press

This chapter examines the teaching techniques of Roland Barthes. It analyzes the impact on his dual status as an intellectual marginal to the university system, and as a professor at the most elite institution in France on his teaching style. It suggests that the evolution of Barthes' pedagogical philosophy was influenced by the ethos of the ‘heretical’ institutions in which he was employed. This chapter also highlights Barthes' opinion that the Collège de France was an ideal institution in which to teach because of its particular status and institutional ethos.

Keywords:   Roland Barthes, teaching style, intellectual, France, pedagogical philosophy, institutional ethos, Collège de France
