"The philosophy of education encompasses problems from many areas of philosophy –epistemology, philosophy of mind, professional ethics, and the theory of distributive justice, to name just a few – and the essays in this useful volume accurately reflect the field's breadth. Randall Curren has done an excellent job of enlisting accomplished and influential authors as contributors. His Companion will set the standard, both as a teaching tool and as a first source of information, for years to come." George Sher, Rice University "Randall Curren has put together an extraordinarily comprehensive collection of essays on the philosophy of education. It should be of value to anyone interested in contemporary issues or historical figures in the field." Catherine Elgin, Harvard Graduate School of Education

A Companion to the Philosophy of Education is a comprehensive guide to philosophical thinking about education. Written by an international team of leading experts, the volume opens with an authoritative survey of major figures and movements and then explores the most important – and at times controversial – topics of current interest in philosophy of education. Contributors explore such topics as educational testing and measurement, knowledge and truth, critical thinking, intelligence, and learning disabilities. They also address a range of much debated issues in the politics and ethics of schooling, including church–state issues, educational choice, educational justice, equality and standards of living, multiculturalism, the ethics of special education, and sex education. The final section looks at issues in the philosophy and ethics of higher education, including academic freedom, conflicts of academic and economic values, and racial justice. This volume is a vital and comprehensive resource for anyone interested in the philosophy of education.
