How can educational relations be understood differently? This the-sis uses a posthuman approach that considers the world as being in constant relational movement and that ascribes agency relationally to humans or nonhumans alike. From this position, the theory of “edu-cational relationality” is introduced and developed as a contribution to the field of philosophy of education. The thesis uses examples such as technology, dogs, and memory stories as parts of its philosophical investigation. Simon Ceder is a researcher at the Division for Education, Lund Uni-versity. His research interest are educational theory and posthuman philosophy. He has a background as a highschool teacher in Swedish and biology. Cutting Through Water is his doctoral thesis.
