A philosophical guide for decision making by educators: developing a set of foundational principles

Front Cover
E. Mellen Press, Mar 1, 2002 - Education - 228 pages
After a critical discussion of several current positions in educational philosophy, the book focuses on communication, reason, and voluntary action as sources of principles that are integral to philosophy and education. The work applies its foundational principles in two ways. It shows how they compare with the educational views of Social Constructivism and of Critical Theory. It also devotes a chapter-length discussion to several curricular topics likely to be facing educators in the future: higher-order-thinking skills, multicultural education, and higher technology.
