A philosophy of reading is presented which considers the components of the reading act, the purposes of reading, and the educational technIQues that promise greater reader growth. A philosophy of reading is concerned with the nature of the individual and the impact of environment on human development. At the same time, a philosophy of reading must consider the nature and demands of the current social order, and, so far as possible, it must attempt to predict changes that are likely to occur in the demands of that social order during the lifespan of the reader. Of chief concern is the importance of meaning and how meaning is acquired. It is stressed that in the perceptual process of reading and listening, the raw materials for all meaning must come from each individual's environmentally delimited experiences. This calls for meeting the needs of culturally disadvantaged children as well as those of middle-class children. Some goals of reading development and proposed methods for attaining them are suggested. This paper was presented at the international reading association conference (Seattle, may 4-6, 1967). (rh)
