Reason and Values - New Essays in Philosophy of Education

£13.99

Product description

A collection of essays by leading academics investigating the philosophy of educational practice. "The authors confront many of the topics and notions which are prominent in educational discussions today- empowerment, democracy, autonomy, critical thinking, gender, the hidden curriculum, relativism, and creativity- and the debate is intense and vehement. These essays make an important contribution to that debate, challenging what passes as obvious truth, focusing what tends to be blurred, reminding where memory has started to fail. One would not expect consensus on particular substantive points in philosophy but the contributers.....share a concern to have their philosophical arguments bear on matters of educational practice. This collection is testimony to the fact that this aim can be pursued without sacrificing standards of philosophical interest and adequacy." From the Introduction by William Hare, Professor of Education and Philosophy, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada.

In very good condition. Some fading to the paperback cover and slight bumping to the corners and the head and tail of the spine. Former owner's name on FFEP. Pages within are clean, crisp and in great condition, with a tight binding.
