Encountering Self, Other and the Third introduces an ethical and pedagogical approach to encountering another person. It discusses art pedagogical dimensions of dialogue and philosophical notions of dialogue and philosophical notions of the Other. It also deepens ideas of the "self" as a critical pedagogue, and the Third through ideas of justice and politics in education. Levinasian notions of the radical Other and the Third are explored in the context of disability studies and a collaborative arts-based research project. The research project explores and develops embodied phenomenological notions in the context of autism. This context is not defined as something different or special and therefore exclusive and separate from other pedagogical situations. Instead, the knowledge that was formed as a result of encounters between two people is informative for other pedagogical situations. Further, traditional art educational notions of learning and axiomatic developmental beliefs of education are challenged.
