Overview

Structured around the biographies of acclaimed educators, philosophers and world figures, this book combines both an historical overview of world education and a balanced treatment of leading educational philosophies. It emphasizes both the importance of contexts and situations in the development of educational ideas as well as those features of educational theories that transcend particular historical contexts. The Second Edition has been expanded—now profiling several more educational figures—and updated to reflect recent international developments.
