The Blackwell Guide to the Philosophy of Education Paperback

Edited by Nigel P. Blake, Paul Smeyers, Richard D. Smith, Richard Smith, Paul Standish

Part of the Blackwell Philosophy Guides series



Philosophy of education has now established itself throughout the world as a theoretically significant and practically vital discipline.

In this important survey, an international group of leading philosophers charts the development of the field in the twentieth century and points to important questions for its future.Each chapter has been written as a collaboration between authors in order to emphasize the diversity of thought, and where appropriate, the dissent and debate that is intrinsic to the field.

The contributors explore social and cultural theories, politics and education, philosophy as education, teaching and curriculum, and ethics and upbringing.

The Blackwell Guide to Philosophy of Education is state-of-the-art map to the field as well as a valuable reference book.
