The book brings philosophical considerations to bear upon our understanding of the concept of education and concepts related to it. It seeks to answer questions such as: is education a unitary concept, or is it a cluster of concepts which are more or less related to one another? Are there values which are constitutive of the practice of education? Is moral education an independent variety of education, or is it necessary internal to all educational practice? 

Suitable for: Students and teachers in colleges and universities, especially those involved with teaching and research on education, philosophy of education. The book will also interest policy makers, administrators, and media persons interested in the field of education.

Description

What, if any, are the core values and ideas of education? Is moral education an independent variety of education or is it something that is intrinsic to most forms of education?    Analysing education through the critical lens of philosophy, this volume explores the challenges that the education system faces in a country like India—a country where any form of generalization becomes dubious owing to its inherently multicultural and multi-linguistic character.    Philosophy and Education also critically examines the higher education system of the country and discusses issues ranging from the importance of humanities in university education to the accountability of institutions, and the division of academic labour as an interdisciplinary effort.   The book looks at both the concept and the system of education, and provides a much-needed philosophical underpinning to our understanding of several core and topical concerns of teaching, learning, and research.
