Description - Durkheim and Modern Education by W. S. F. Pickering

Emile Durkheim's teaching and writing on education has traditionally been a neglected area of research. Much of his work on this subject was published posthumously and only translated into English in the late 1970s. However, philosophers of education increasingly argue that Durkheim's ideas are applicable to modern education. This volume explores Durkheim's place in modern educational thought at three different levels: * Durkheim's ideas on education are analysed and placed in the context of a modern society * current educational issues are explored using a Durkheimian framework * Durkheim's thought is related to that of modern educational theorists to reveal his enduring influence In discussing Durkheims modern relevance, the contributors stress his desire to integrate the practical and theoretical aspects of education. They identify particular pertinence in his focus upon the moral base of education and his insistence upon the importance of the social and society. Durkheim and Modern Education brings together authoritative work from acknowledged leaders in both educational and Durkheimian studies. Written from an international perspective, this will be an important resource for sociologists and educationalists alike. Jacques F.A. Braster, Erasmus University, Rotterdam, The Netherlands; Mark S.
