Book Description:

A Companion to the Philosophy of Education is a comprehensive guide to philosophical thinking about education. Written by an international team of leading experts, the volume opens with an authoritative survey of major figures and movements and then explores the most important - and at times controversial - topics of current interest in philosophy of education. Contributors explore such topics as educational testing and measurement, knowledge and truth, critical thinking, intelligence, and learning disabilities. They also address a range of much debated issues in the politics and ethics of schooling, including church-state issues, educational choice, educational justice, equality and standards of living, multiculturalism, the ethics of special education, and sex education. The final section looks at issues in the philosophy and ethics of higher education, including academic freedom, conflicts of academic and economic values, and racial justice. This volume is a vital and comprehensive resource for anyone interested in the philosophy of education.
