Philosophy And Education

Philosophy of education is the philosophical study of education, often understood as a field of applied philosophy that draws from established branches of philosophy in epistemology, ethics, axiology, and politics to raise and address questions of educational aims, methods, and problems, and of educational policy, pedagogy, and curriculum. A Catholic Philosophy of Education addresses these challenges by examining the documents from the Roman Congregation for Catholic Education alongside the writings of Jacques Maritain and Bernard Lonergan. Such a society is one in which men find pleasure or happiness in the performance of duty, and Locke’s ethical reflection endeavors to justify this conception of the good life.

Contemporary Educational Philosophy

All human societies, past and present, have had a vested interest in education; and some wits have claimed that teaching (at its best an educational activity) is the second oldest profession. Kant’s process of education take place in three different steps:specific care (maintenance and support), discipline (training), and instruction together with formation. Postmodern philosophers and philosophers of education challenge basic aspects of traditional philosophical theorizing by calling into question the possibility of objectivity, the neutrality of reason, the stability of meaning, and the distinction between truth and power. Thus, these thinkers, in a sense, present an anti-Platonic formula of education.

Advocates of this educational philosophy are Robert Maynard Hutchins who developed a Great Books program in 1963 and Mortimer Adler, who further developed this curriculum based on 100 great books of western civilization. Part of the explanation for this diffuse state of affairs is that, quite reasonably, many philosophers of …

In philosophy there are various schools / streams, such as materialism, idealism, realism, pragmatism, and others.

The 1960s saw the birth of philosophy of education, in contrast to earlier studies of educational philosophies. The points discussed above are the general aspects of educational aims, the specific category also exists but that category needs to be addressed only to the related masses. Froebel, a follower of Pestalozzi and of Rousseau, made much use of religious language, but by identifying God and the Absolute he removed philosophy of education still further than did Rousseau from a religious center.

The liberal philosophy aims at developing intellectual powers, while the behavioral ideologies focus on the survival skills of a human being and the role of education in teaching them. We must constantly be evaluating what we teach and how were teaching it to ensure that students are receiving an education that is accessible, meaningful, and engaging for them.

Idealism And Philosophy (And Education On Both)

Philosophy of education can refer to either the academic field of applied philosophy or to one of any educational philosophies that promote a specific type or vision of education , and/or which examine the definition, goals and meaning of education. Human moral reasoning works to harmonize the contradictions involved in a situation to find a new way to deal with it. Thus, if one acts in a new way which is not habitual or customary, and finds good consequences of his actions, then, such a novel attitude helps in growth.20 For Dewey, growth is the greatest achievement for both individual and society.

However, there is another consequence of this institutional housing of the vast majority of philosophers of education that is worth noting—one that is not found in a comparable way in philosophers of science, for example, who almost always are located in departments of philosophy—namely, that experience as a …

John Dewey’s Philosophy Of Education

Some argue that parents should have ultimate authority regarding their children’s educations, on the grounds that parents are more trustworthy, and in a more legitimate position of authority, than any government officials could be. Critics of this notion argue that it is not a parent’s right to control the educational fate of their children, and furthermore that the intolerant religious traditions of some could serve to undermine a reasonably democratic multicultural society. He argues that students must be educated for personal and communal freedom and authenticity, and to strive for the common good, suggesting how a Catholic philosophy of education can provide the framework for such personal and communal transformation. Topics covered in the Archambault volume were typical of those that became the bread and butter” of analytic philosophy of education throughout the English-speaking world—education as a process of initiation, liberal education, the nature of knowledge, types of teaching, and …
