From the Back Cover:

The current demand for greater accountability in education hasgiven rise to significant developments in philosophies of learning.Today's educators are bombarded with directives relating to suchissues as ICT-assisted learning, happiness enhancement, andemotional intelligence. In responding to this spate of innovativelearning techniques, New Philosophies of Learning signalsthe need for a sharper critical awareness of the possibilities andthe problems that these developments present.

Through contributions from an international range of leadingempirical researchers and philosophers, the text explores therelationships between scientific and philosophical perspectives inthese new approaches. Without exaggerating similarities or offeringsweeping judgments, the text delves deeply into the crucial issuesat the vanguard of current educational approaches, including therise of neuro-science, the fashion for categorizing learners, ICT,and the 'enhancement' of learners' emotional well-being andhappiness. Extensive editorial commentary draws out many of thesalient lines of arguments to facilitate comparison and clarity,and to stimulate further evaluation. 

New Philosophies of Learning provides valuable scholarlyinsights into contemporary learning techniques while encouragingcareful reflection about the nature of knowledge and how welearn.
