An introduction to philosophy of education by Robin Barrow( Book )

68 editions published between 1975 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the fourth edition of this textbook, the authors introduce students to the business of philosophizing, thereby inducting them into the art of reasoning and analysing key concepts in education." "This introductory text shows, first and foremost, the importance of philosophy in educational debate and as a background to any practical activity such as teaching. They draw on the latest research in genetics to argue that education is uniquely human and is essentially what develops us as humans. Resisting modern tendencies to equate knowledge with opinion, and value judgements with taste, this book leads the reader into the business of philosophizing and champions the cause of reason in education."--Jacket

Moral philosophy for education by Robin Barrow( Book )

30 editions published between 1975 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teachers and students are frequently confused as to the relevance of abstract philosophical theorising to the reality of the classroom and this book is distinctive for the attention it devotes to philosophy and its potential contribution to practical matters, and education in particular. The author is critical of many current views of the philosophy of education and argues the validity of philosophy as an integral part of education in its own right, against the creation of a 'new' branch of philosophy, the 'philosophy of education'. The book stresses that relativist ethical theories are no mor

This book addresses the question 'What should be taught in schools and why?'.

The final chapter contains the positive curricular recommendations, with virtually every candidate for curriculum time examined and assessed in respect of its educational worth

An introduction to moral philosophy and moral education by Robin Barrow( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most introductions to moral philosophy, in one way or another, delineate the field and introduce the reader to various moral theories and arguments. An Introduction to Moral Philosophy and Moral Education is different in that it eschews the traditional, historical approach and the use of names and schools of thought as organizing devices. Focusing on the ideas themselves, it keeps jargon to a minimum, and with a wealth of examples from drunkenness to torture, from cell-phones to tax evasion, this book brings philosophy and everyday reality firmly together." "This book seeks to present and argue for a moral theory which draws on most of the major theoretical positions to some degree, but it also spells out the limits and boundaries of such a theory. In doing so, it exposes a number of common confusions and misunderstandings about morality, and presents a strong argument for some indisputable truths in relation to the moral sphere." "While the book concentrates on argument and ideas, a commentary to each chapter provides historical context and contemporary reference points. It will prove an invaluable resource for students of both education and philosophy."--BOOK JACKET
