Overview

Joe L. Kincheloe and Randall Hewitt have gathered an impressive and scholarly group of authors who argue for the continuing importance of the philosophy of education. Reviving the notion that philosophy is an essential foundation in the study of and research of education, the authors in this volume directly confront the evisceration of the topic by those who are interested in commercializing learning. Contrary to the current shift away from foundations courses, this volume proves that pre-service teachers need an intense awareness of the subjects that comprise the core of their knowledge. Philosophy of education is central to this concept. Regenerating the Philosophy of Education is essential reading for all undergraduate and graduate students in schools of education. It also is an excellent resource for classroom usage.

Product Details

Meet the Author

Joe L. Kincheloe (1950-2008) was the author of over 55 books and hundreds of articles. His most recent book was Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy. His research/teaching involved devising and engaging students in new, more intellectually rigorous, socially just ways of analyzing and researching education. He developed an evolving notion of criticality that constructed innovative ways to cultivate the intellect as it worked in anti-oppressive and affectively engaging ways. With Shirley R. Steinberg, Joe founded the Paulo and Nita Freire International Project for Critical Pedagogy, which aims to improve the contribution that education makes to social justice and the democratic quality of people's lives.

Originally from Greer, South Carolina, Randy Hewitt has been at the University of Central Florida since 2001 and was promoted to Associate Professor in the spring of 2007. Hewitt's current research focuses on the critical sense of the American pragmatist and social reconstructionist traditions and on the art of democratic pedagogy. He is the author of Dewey and Power: Renewing the Democratic Faith (SENSE).
