From the Back Cover:

Since well before the Enlightenment theorists have been philosophizing about how best to educate children. Across the Western world intensified government involvement suggests that the arena of early childhood education has taken on greater social, political, and economic significance. Philosophy of Early Childhood Education: Transforming Narratives offers a sobering and insightful critical analysis of the many competing and conflicting theories of early childhood education.

Within the spirit of open-ended debate – and through a series of unfolding narratives – contributing authors offer their unique perspectives on early childhood education to stimulate discussion, enliven debate, and stretch the philosophical parameters of early childhood discourse. A diverse range of educators – from the United States, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and across mainland Europe – provides readers with an ‘intellectual smorgasbord’ of the latest philosophical issues in early childhood education. Exposure to such a broad range of viewpoints will help early childhood theorists and practitioners navigate their way through the complexities of contemporary early childhood education.

About the Author:

Sandy Farquhar is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. She is currently lecturing in early childhood curriculum and professional studies.

Peter Fitzsimons has, at various times, been a teacher, professional musician, radio journalist, factory manager, harassed parent, and an educational management consultant. He was also recently awarded a PhD for his work on Nietzsche and Education.
