In this book, first published in 1978, Allen Brent sets out to
explore some of the questions raised by theorists and philosophers
regarding curriculum. He starts by investigating whether all
knowledge is the product of social conditions of particular times
or places, or whether there is some kind of universal framework
implicit in the claims to knowledge which men make. He looks at the
work of Plato, Newman, Freire and Hirt and how, each of them in a
strikingly different way, they have tried to give us an objective
basis for curriculum judgements and how the validity of that basis
is attacked by contemporary sociologists of knowledge. This book is
aimed primarily at students who are concentrating on the philosophy
of education or curriculum theory.
