9780199783069: Classic and Contemporary Readings in the Philosophy of Education

Now even more affordably priced in its second edition, Classic and Contemporary Readings in the Philosophy of Education is ideal for undergraduate and graduate philosophy of education courses. Editor Steven M. Cahn, a highly respected contributor to the field, brings together writings by leading figures in the history of philosophy and notable contemporary thinkers. The first section of the book provides material from nine classic writers: Plato, Aristotle, Locke, Rousseau, Kant, Wollstonecraft, Mill, Whitehead, and Dewey. Their historically important works encourage students to view current issues and debates from broad perspectives. The second section presents twenty-one recent selections that reflect diverse approaches, including pragmatism, analytic philosophy, feminism, and multiculturalism. The readings are substantial or complete texts, not fragments.

The second edition of Classic and Contemporary Readings in the Philosophy of Education features expanded selections by Locke, Rousseau, Kant, and Dewey, along with eight new readings:

* Mary Wollstonecraft, "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman" (excerpt)
* Patricia Heidenry, "Home Is Where the School Is"
* Joseph S. Spoerl, "Justice and the Case for School Vouchers"
* Jeffrey R. Henig, "Rethinking School Choice"
* John Passmore, "The Concept of Teaching"
* Michel Foucault, "Discipline and Punish" (excerpt)
* Steven M. Cahn, "Guiding, Grading, and Guarding"
* Martha Nussbaum, "Cultivating Humanity" (excerpt)

Offering unprecedented breadth and depth of coverage, Classic and Contemporary Readings in the Philosophy of Education, Second Edition, is the most inclusive, thorough, and accessible introduction to the field.

About the Author:


Steven M. Cahn is Professor of Philosophy at The City University of New York Graduate Center.

Review:


"The blend of classic philosophers and modern thinkers brings a continuity and diversity to the thinking on the subject. I would definitely adopt this textbook for my course. Cahn's inclusion of women writers and contemporary issues is really refreshing and not expected in such a text."--Christina Ramirez-Smith, Jacksonville University


"There is simply no compendium of primary sources on the philosophy of education in print that is more comprehensive or thoughtfully arranged than this one. I am sure that it will continue to play a key role in the preparation of educational practitioners, policy makers, and leaders in the years to come."--Hanan Alexander, University of Haifa and former Visiting Professor, University of California, Berkeley
