Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

No one in the development of modern, analytical philosophy of education has played so dominant a role as British philosopher Richard Stanley Peters. Seeking to bring clarity, argumentative structure, and a new seriousness to the discipline in the early 1960s, Peters also inspired and facilitated the growth of publication in the field. His prodigious output encompassed foundational conceptual analysis of education and teaching, examination of justifications of educational aims and the curriculum, and enquiry into ethical development and moral education. Reading R. S. Peters Today: Analysis, Ethics and the Aims of Education reassesses Peters’ educational writings by exposing them to the critical glare of the most recent developments in philosophy and practice. Peters' work is analysed from a wide range range of perspectives, which, taken together, will reveal the extent to which his body of work survives as a serious contribution to central questions in ethics and epistemology, politics, and moral psychology. Contributions also show the ongoing significance of R. S. Peters for the field of education today. Reading R. S. Peters Today represents a timely and important critical reassessment of one of the founding fathers of contemporary philosophy of education.
