From the Back Cover:

Philosophy East/West showcases new scholarship in the philosophy of education and contemplative studies, paying particular attention to the relationships between mindfulness, evidence-based science, and wisdom traditions. This special issue from the Journal of Philosophy of Education examines the ethical, social, and cultural intersections between educational practices informed by Western philosophical traditions and the contemplative practices informed by Eastern wisdom traditions.

The authors of these essays—an international group with a broad range of viewpoints—move beyond simplistic explanations of “Eastern” and “Western” to explore the complexity and diversity of various wisdom traditions. To situate contemplative practice within contemporary educational theory, they use insights from important Western philosophers, including Heidegger, Levinas, and Foucault and investigate the effect of mindfulness-based curricular interventions on current educational theory and practice. Throughout they emphasize the importance of transcultural and intercultural approaches in the philosophy of education. Engaging and innovative, these essays offer exciting new perspectives on the connection between mind and body, and the practice of attention in education today.
