"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
