In our increasingly complex world, the teaching of thinking has become imperative. Yet evidence shows that our children are not learning how to think. Matthew Lipman, a leading educational theorist, gets to the heart of our educational problems, in Thinking in Education and makes profound and workable suggestions for solving those problems. Thinking in Education describes procedures that must be put in place if students at all levels of education are to become more thoughtful, more reasonable, and more judicious. It recommends that the classroom be converted into a community of inquiry and that the discipline of philosophy be redesigned so as to provide the concepts and values now missing from the curriculum. These recommendations have now been carried out; the community of inquiry is a recognized pedagogical strategy, and traditional academic philosophy has been transformed into a discipline that offers a model of higher-order thinking and an image of what all education can be.

Book Description:

The second edition of Thinking in Education makes a major contribution towards teaching for judgment, not just for knowledge. It provides methods for integrating emotive experience, mental acts, thinking skills and informal fallacies into a concerted approach to the improvement of reasoning and judgment. It also shows how the community of inquiry can be utilized for the reduction of violence in the classroom and for the improvement of education of children at risk. Its great wealth of information and wisdom about thinking in education makes it an invaluable resource for all teachers.

Review:

"This book highlights, very appropriately, why thinking needs improving in schools. It illustrates, in a variety of ways, how teachers could encourage their pupils in thought-provoking debates....This book would be a useful resource to anyone involved in teaching philosophy, citizenship or subject-specific thinking." British Journal of Educational Studies
