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 philosophe...Read More
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...Read More
Aristotle considered human nature, habit and reason to be equally important forces to be cultivated in education, the ultimate aim of which should be to produce good and virtuous citizens. The education received at Northwestern equips graduates to think critically, reason analytically, solve problems, use technology and the tools of inquiry effectively and to express themselves clearly and confidently in speaking and writing. In his Utilitarianism Mill holds that the best society is one in which there is the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest number of people.
Notable among Enlightenment philosophers, Immanuel Kant’s moral and political philosophy bequeathed a tradition that emphasized an ethics of autonomy as the basis of human freedom...Read More
God is the source of all that is true, good, and beautiful, and has chosen to reveal Himself to humankind. An earlier classic that also contains an exploration of metaphors of teaching and learning is Israel Scheffler’s The Language of Education (1960). My name is Ciaran Cummins and I run a fledgling (but growing across the UK) site and broader organisation for current and former students of philosophy to engage, experimentally, with public life using their philosophical training.
Each of these has specific purposes in education and defines the role of a teacher and his relationship with the learner, in the unique perspective of particular philosophical contexts...Read More
Talent liberation is about making the most of everyone’s unique talents in the delivery of shared objectives. The third he relied upon to exclude from education a great deal of philosophy and other literature that he found devoid of practical consequence. Unlike Plato, Rousseau also prescribed fundamentally distinct educations for boys and girls, and in doing so he raised issues concerning gender and its place in education that are of central concern today. The formal education is given in schools or colleges or universities, on the other hand informal education is obtained and absorbed from society and environment. A wide range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activity enriches and complements the community life and educational experiences of students.

TEACH is a movie about three young adults who traveled the country seeking to find out what education really means. My future goal as a philosophy teacher is on a scholarly level: I want to investigate and devise innovative ways to objectively measure student learning in order to better explain why learning philosophical skills is important for our college students. This preparation for the future life is almost rejected by modern educational philosophers like Rousseau and Dewey.
According to Khalid(1998, p. 98) : the aim of education at this stage is to perfect the organs and the senses that are instruments of knowledge and the development of his natural powers before knowledge is actually received...Read More
This innovative degree is specifically for teachers of philosophy in schools, particularly those who deliver, or wish to deliver, the AQA A Level in Philosophy. Not surprisingly, feminist philosophers of education have been in the vanguard of the critique of this position (Martin 1985). But it’s perhaps precisely this disjuncture – between what universities purport to do and what happens in society – that starts to explain why knowledge in Africa has become so misplaced. Dewey created an educational philosophy that answers all the issues that emerged from the educational philosophy of idealism...Read More
The Philosophy in Education project aims is to promote engagement with philosophy at all points of the education process. Above statement is a strong critique on idealism, the elan vital behind traditional education.Idealism, the traditionally dominant epistemological stance in Western philosophy, denies the importance of experience in the formation of knowledge and maintains that knowledge is attainable through reflection alone. John Dewey (1859-1952) applied pragmatist philosophy in his progressive approaches. Graduates of both programs have and will assume roles as university faculty, researchers, senior-level education leaders, and policymakers.
Assuming that if the individuals in a group acquire the moral ideas the group will also, Herbart holds that the immediate objective of educat...Read More
Although it is not apt to start an essay on a philosophy with a critical remark, for before learning how to criticize, one should learn the content to be criticized, yet , notwithstanding its great merits and value, it seems necessary to criticize Plato’s philosophy of education right at the outset. Although there is overlap, philosophy of education should not be conflated with educational theory, which is not defined specifically by the application of philosophy to questions in education. His basic principal was that everything is good as it comes from the hands of God but it degenerates gradually due to influences of the society...Read More
