Arguing that students can better understand and practice their profession by reading, contemplating, and discussing the great philosophic tradition in education, Philosophical Documents in Education, Second Edition, is an edited anthology of fifteen primary source materials that provides a wide range of both historical and contemporary viewpoints. Reed and Johnson invite preservice and inservice teachers to think critically about what it means to be educated and encourage them to formulate their own vision about what education is and what it should be.

Meet the Author

A former coach and high school history teacher, Tony W. Johnson earned his Ph.D. in the history and philosophy of education from George Peabody College for Teachers, now part of Vanderbilt University. Receiving the Algernon Sidney Sullivan Award as Peabody’s outstanding graduate, Dr. Johnson earned a “pass with distinction” evaluation of his dissertation, The Old Moral Philosophy Course: Its Continuing Legacy in 1978. As a faculty member and academic administrator, Dr. Johnson has provided innovative and entrepreneurial leadership to four significantly different institutions: The University of Texas at San Antonio; The University of North Carolina at Greensboro; West Chester University of Pennsylvania; and The Citadel: The Military College of South Carolina.

A skilled teacher and experienced academic leader, Dr. Johnson is also an accomplished scholar. In additions to multiple editions of the Philosophical Documents in Education text, Professor Johnson is the author of Philosophy for Children: An Approach to Critical Thinking; Discipleship or Pilgrimage: The Educator’s Quest for Philosophy; Historical Documents in Education; and with Ron Reed, Friendship and Moral Education: Twin Pillars of Philosophy for Children. As a professor, scholar, and academic leader, Dr. Johnson is committed to blending liberal and professional studies into a unified and integrated whole.
