Book Description:

At a time when schools and universities are under ever-increasing pressure to serve a variety of ends - for example, national prosperity, managerial efficiency, democratic citizenship - are they betraying their proper ends as educational institutions? Might the dominant discourses in terms of which we now think about and develop policies for education not only undermine its integrity but even prevent recognition of this very fact? These fundamental questions are addressed in this book, first in an interview with Alasdair MacIntyre and then in critical responses by leading philosophers of education. In the context of wide-ranging debates about modernity and post-modernity, the volume seeks to reclaim the integrity of education and to reveal the distinctiveness of teaching as a central human practice..
