Philosophy of Education: Aims, Theory, Common Sense and Research, Martin Blocksidge, 9780826487087


This book for the first time brings together Professor Prings thoughts on the philosophy of education and is his first global treatment of the subject. His writings reflect a consistency of thought about educational theory and educational aimsand the consequence of both for the nature and practice of educational research. Professor Pring draws together the different themes, providing a distinctively philosophical perspective on educational theory and practice. This perspective challenges many of the ideas, which underpin government policy, impoverish educational practice and weaken educational research in a way unacknowledged even by the researchs most ardent critics.
