After a critical discussion of several current positions in educational philosophy, this book focuses on communication, reason, and voluntary action as sources of principles that are integral to philosophy and education. The work applies its foundational principles in two ways. It shows how they compare with the educational views of Social Constructivism and of Critical Theory. It also devotes a chapter length discussion to several curricular topics likely to be facing educators in the future: higher-order-thinking skills, multicultural education, and higher technology.
The plight of educational philosophy; the foundations of philosophical inquiry; a philosophical structure for education; other educational theories - social constructivism; other educational theories - critical pedagogy; educational proposals - intellectual skills; educational proposals - multicultural education; educational proposals - the new technology; prospect.
