From the Publisher:

A thorough survey of all major philosophies of education, one that shows students in easy-to-understand prose how philosophical ideas about education have developed over time, how they reflect their historical influences and settings, and how these ideas continue to have relevance for education and life in the twentieth century and beyond. Each chapter defines a particular educational philosophy, includes actual excerpts from the writings of the philosophy's major proponents, and offers a section which elaborates upon the philosophy's impact on educational thought and practice. A straightforward style and appropriate reading level makes even complex ideas understandable without oversimplifying.

From the Back Cover:

This survey of the various philosophies of education offers a balanced, critical treatment of each philosophy -- demonstrating its uses in, and affects on, educational practices. Discusses each philosophy individually -- Idealism, Realism, Eastern Philosophy, Religion, Pragmatism, Reconstructionism, Behaviorism, Existentialism, Phenomonology, Analytic Philosophy, Marxism, Postmodernism -- exploring the historical development, current status, influence on education, leading ideas, and selected readings of major philosophers for each. Covers significant new developments in philosophy -- particularly in realism, pragmatism, Marxism, and Post Modernism. Integrates information on the role of the teacher throughout. For educators at all levels.
