COURSE: 51-710 Philosophy of Education (3)
One of Simon Blackburn’s (1999) three arguments for why philosophy is important is that the act of reflection or its absence impacts human action. This certainly applies to a wide variety of vocational spaces within the field of education. This course pursues the reflection – practice connection through a study of classical (e.g., Plato, Aristotle, Locke, Rousseau, Dewey) and contemporary (e.g., Nel Noddings, Maxine Greene, Jane Roland Martin, Richard Rorty) readings in philosophy of education.
