Abstract

There is much talk of the student voice and student centred higher education and perhaps the idea of a commonality of what a student is can be fairly clearly delineated by their function, but what is the basis of the singularity of the student that is central or whose unique voice we should hear? This paper looks at the nature of individuality and potentiality though the lens of the transcendentals. To do this it develops an interpretation of how the medieval philosophers discussed the transcendentals in the light of their causal powers. Utilising a notion of emergent causal powers I tentatively suggest a concept of higher education where the commonality of the transcendentals’ properties and powers so related offer a hermeneutic account of how we might create a pedagogy from the transcendentals nexus which has explanatory powers for our being
