The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Education

Edited by Harvey Siegel

Oxford Handbooks

  • Prominence and distinction, within philosophy, of contributing authors.
  • Broad coverage of central topics within philosophy of education, with unusual emphasis on broadly epistemological topics. (Most competitor volumes emphasize history of philosophy of education or ethics/social-political topics more, and epistemological topics less, than this one.)
  • Essays don't just survey their domains, but offer positive and original - and sometimes controversial - solutions to outstanding problems.
  • Essays place educational questions squarely within the context of general philosophy, and bring the two into close contact.
