Overview

Presenting breadth and depth of coverage in a highly readable style, the seventh edition of this popular survey book again provides balanced treatment of all the major schools of thought about education. The authors address how philosophical ideas about education developed over time—arranging their coverage in chronological order—and paying close attention to historical context, while emphasizing each philosophy's continuing relevance to education today. For each philosophy, they show its application in aims, curriculum, methods, and teaching. Additionally, they critically assess each philosophy, and examine how numerous other scholars view it.

Thorough revision throughout brings every aspect of the coverage as up-to-date as possible, particularly in coverage of Idealism, Eastern philosophy, Pragmatism, and Postmodernism.

For today's educators and philosophers.
