A new title from Routledge's Major Works series, Major Themes in Education, Philosophy of Education II is a five-volume `mini library' of the very best scholarship.
It is an essential successor collection to Philosophy of Education (1998) (978-0-415-12944-2), edited by Paul Hurst and Patricia White, and described by the Bulletin of the UK-Japan Education Forum as "indispensable for libraries". Philosophy of Education was the first comprehensive collection of the field's canonical and cutting-edge research; this new collection takes full account of the numerous important developments that have taken place since its appearance.
Moreover, Philosophy of Education II also includes coverage of many new areas and topics outwith the scope of the first collection. With a full index together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the learned editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Philosophy of Education II is a crucial work of reference.
It is destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital resource.
