Description - The Aims of Education by Roger Marples

For many years, the aims of education have been informed by liberalism, with an emphasis on autonomy. The aim has been to mentally equip students to be autonomous individuals, able to live self-directed lives. In this volume, international philosophers of education explore and question diverse strains of the liberal tradition, discussing not only autonomy but other key issues such as: social justice national identity curriculum critical thinking social practices. The contributors write from a variety of standpoints, offering many interpretations of what liberalism might mean in educational terms. The result is a challenging collection of new research, which is sure to stimulate debate. The Aims of Education will have wide appeal amongst philosophers, educationalists, teachers, policy-makers and those interested in the future of education.
