Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is an impressive collection of contributions from many of the leading figures in the field of philosophy of education in the Western world. It is wide ranging in its scope and coverage of the field and offers perhaps the best single point of reference for anyone wanting to see what the subject has to offer to an understanding of education as a field of practice, policy and enquiry -- and that, as these well crafted pieces demonstrate, is a lot' -
David Bridges

"This volume is to be recommended to all educators with an interest in philosophy of education... the quality of writing was excellent throughout [with] examples of what a range of perspectives looks like, with an admirable ability to consider the weaknesses of these positions alongside their strengths...highly recommended as an introduction to the field."


Journal of Research in International Education


"In brief, this SAGE Handbook is an interesting and informative book on philosophy of education. It can be "handy" to a wide range of interested readers, eg, students of different educational disciplines new to the area of philosophy; teachers, with no familiarity with philosophy who are keen to gain a basic knowledge of educational philosophy; and those with a desire to apply philosophy to educational practice. The book oscillates between classical and contemporary philosophical thought which provides a helpful perspective for the reader. It reflects on philosophical thoughts in an unambiguous, simplified, and attractive manner as well as supporting the significant relationship between educational practice and philosophical enquiry of the contemporary world."
