"Conceptions of Culture provides an in-depth understanding of the diverse meanings of culture in the literature of multicultural education. Thomas E. Wren offers an analytic framework within which the history and current state of culture theory can be understood both of its own sake and for its educational significance. The book enables readers to find their way through the massive literature of multicultural educations, to apply the book's framework to their own future practice, and to anticipate changes in how culture is understood."--Back cover

Promise-giving and treaty-making : Homer and the Near East by Peter Karavites( Book )

10 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book challenges the current view of the Homeric epics, according to which they reflect only the institutions and ideas of their own time, telling us nothing about the Mycenaean Age preceding it. Using a comparative analysis of evidence from the Near East and the Homeric corpus, Peter Karavites comes to the bold conclusion that the epics actually contain much that harks back to the Mycenaean Age, and that the two eras may not be completely discontinuous after all. Most contemporary scholars maintain that the mighty Mycenaean period was almost completely separated from the Dark Ages and that virtually no evidence of the former remains, with the exception of the archeological finds and the meager testimony of the Linear B tablets. However, the Near Eastern evidence about treaties and other forms of promising suggests that the Iliad and Odyssey may indeed provide historical pictures of the Mycenaean times featured in their narratives

Philosophy of development : reconstructing the foundations of human development and education by A. W. van Haaften( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy of development is a fascinating area of research at the intersection of philosophy, psychology, and education. This book is unique in that it combines a broad sketch of contemporary developmental theory with detailed discussions of its central issues, in order to construct a general framework for understanding and analyzing theories of individual and collective development in various domains ranging from cognitive and moral development to developments in art. Special attention is also given to the rich relations between conceptual development and education
Moral obligations : action, intention, and valuation by Thomas E Wren( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are many ways of writing about the moral life; Moral Obligations follows the way of what philosophers call "meta-ethics": the analysis, not of particular moral problems, but of how the concepts used in formulating and solving them, concepts like "right" and "obligatory," have significance and power over us. The meta-ethical part of this book is preceded by a discussion of action, in which Wren lays the foundations for the argument that moral obligation is a part of the formal structure of human agency. Wren's argument is practical and social-psychological: it is to help all, starting with those who are already committed to some version of the ethic of individual dignity, to promote interagency fellowship and peace as a result of seeing a certain truth, namely, the truth that the urgency of their feelings of moral obligation derives from a unspoken intention to belong to a community of agents. Moral Obligations begins with the philosophy of action, and then it reviews the historical debate about the nature of obligation and its social context. This is followed by a section about action in general: it establishes the standpoint of the agent and makes an inventory of several species of action. Later chapters summarize the foregoing themes, with emphasis on the unspoken side of intention, and develop them in conjunction with an analysis of the hypothetical imperative. The work closes with a discussion of the dilemma of membership in competing moral communities. --
