Visions of childhood : influential models from Locke to Spock by John F Cleverley( Book )

15 editions published between 1986 and 2001 in English and held by 806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout history certain theories of childhood have influenced the way we have understood, cared for, and educated our young. These theories form the bases of our attitudes toward children, and underpin our popular childrearing practices. Yet they have passed through history for the most part unexamined. In [this book], authors John Cleverley and D.C. Phillips unveil the central and often surprising notions that have shaped our conceptions of childhood in the Western world. Bringing the skills of the historian and philosopher to bear, the authors examine those visions of the child that have become the most influential, including the work of Locke, Rousseau, Freud, Piaget, Marx, and Dewey. In probing these ideas, the authors trace the development of a variety of identifable models, including the environmentalist, the atomistic, and the deterministic."-- from book's back cover
Leaders in educational research : intellectual self portraits by Fellows of the International Academy of Education by María de Ibarrola( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume fourteen fellows of the International Academy of Education, whose research work is known internationally, reflect upon the ways in which their careers have been shaped by early family influences, by random events and surprise opportunities, and by nascent intellectual interests and academic mentoring. The authors come from many different countries (Australia, Belgium, Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Israel, Mexico, South Africa, and the USA), and from a number of disciplinary or intellectual orientations including curriculum development, economics, educational measurement and statistical analysis, history, philosophy, policy analysis, program evaluation, psychology, and sociology. They come from diverse social and cultural backgrounds; and in many cases rose above the travails presented by wars, social unrest, and social injustice to attain an education that launched them eventually into a research career. On this path, many were unexpectedly assisted by established researchers who served as mentors or {esc}(3z{esc}(Benablers.{esc}(3y{esc}(B Their personal stories, then, are of broad interest - and may even be a source of comfort and inspiration to younger colleagues who are commencing their careers in the international educational research community
The expanded social scientist's bestiary : a guide to fabled threats to, and defenses of, naturalistic social science by D. C Phillips( )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The (Expanded)Social ScientistOs Bestiary addresses a number of important theoretical and philosophical issues in the social sciences from the perspective of contemporary philosophy of science. The book discusses and critiques the various arguments that purport to establish that it is a mistake to believe that a naturalistic social science- i.e. social science that in some way resembles the natural sciences- can be produced. It is intended to guide social scientists-researchers, teachers, and students-so that they will not fall victim to the beasts they will encounter in the course of their inquiries. Such beasts include holism, post-positivistic work in the philosophy of science, Kuhnian relativism, the denial of objectivity and value neutrality, hermeneutics and several others, both good and bad. This expanded and revised edition contains four new chapters tackling such contemporary beasts as Popperian rules, narrative research, and various forms of constructivism. The chapters presented in this volume are, as far as possible, self-contained so that each chapter can be consulted without the necessity of having read the others, thus making this volume an invaluable guide for faculty members and graduate students in the whole of the social sciences and related applied fields

Postpositivism and educational research by D. C Phillips( Book )

9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents in a forthright and lively way, an account of the philosophical position generally identified as 'Postpositivistic' that undergirds much of mainstream research in education and the related social sciences. The discussion throughout is informed by recent developments in philosophy of science. This book argues that, while there is much to be learned from recent critiques regarding truth in research, traditional scientific values and assumptions are not outmoded

A companion to John Dewey's Democracy and education by D. C Phillips( Book )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This year [2016] marks the centenary publication of John Dewey's magnum opus, Democracy and Education. Despite its profound importance as a foundational text in education, it is notoriously difficult and, dare we say it, a little dry. In this charming and often funny companion, noted philosopher of education D. C. Phillips goes chapter by chapter to bring Dewey to a twenty-first-century audience. Drawing on over fifty years of thinking about this book, and on his own experiences as an educator, he lends it renewed clarity and a personal touch that proves its lasting importance. Phillips bridges several critical pitfalls of Democracy and Education that often prevent contemporary readers from fully understanding it. Where Dewey sorely needs a detailed example to illustrate a point, and the times are many, Phillips steps in, presenting cases from his own classroom experiences. Where Dewey casually refers to the works of people like Hegel, Herbart, and Locke, common knowledge, apparently, in 1916, Phillips fills in the necessary background. And where Dewey gets convoluted or is even flat-out wrong, Phillips does what few other scholars would do: he takes Dewey to task. The result is a lively accompaniment that helps us celebrate and be enriched by some of the most important ideas ever offered in education." -- from publisher's website
