From the Back Cover

No one in the development of modern, analytical philosophy ofeducation has played so dominant a role as British philosopherRichard Stanley Peters. Seeking to bring clarity, argumentativestructure, and a new seriousness to the discipline in the early1960s, Peters also inspired and facilitated the growth ofpublication in the field. His prodigious output encompassedfoundational conceptual analysis of education and teaching,examination of justifications of educational aims and thecurriculum, and enquiry into ethical development and moraleducation. Reading R. S. Peters Today: Analysis, Ethicsand the Aims of Education reassesses Peters’ educationalwritings by exposing them to the critical glare of the most recentdevelopments in philosophy and practice. Peters' work is analysedfrom a wide range range of perspectives, which, taken together,will reveal the extent to which his body of work survives as aserious contribution to central questions in ethics andepistemology, politics, and moral psychology. Contributions alsoshow the ongoing significance of R. S. Peters for the field ofeducation today. Reading R. S. Peters Today represents atimely and important critical reassessment of one of the foundingfathers of contemporary philosophy of education.
