New Perspectives in Philosophy of Education seeks to build a bridge
between philosophical reflection and socio-political action by
developing a range of critical discussions in the areas of ethics,
politics and religion. This volume brings together established
authorities and a new generation of scholars to ask whether
philosophy of education can contribute to political and social
discourse, or whether it is destined to remain the marginal gadfly
of mainstream ideology. The philosophy of education stands in
danger of becoming a neglected field at precisely the moment we
need to be able to reflect upon the increasingly apparent costs of
the technocratic attitude to education. While many of the
educational policy discussions of recent years seem far-reaching
and radical, critical debate surrounding these initiatives remain
largely at a populist level. New Perspectives in Philosophy of
Education provides contemporary responses to philosophical issues
that bear upon educational studies, policies and practices,
contributing to the debate on the role of philosophy of education
in an increasingly fractured intellectual milieu.
