Philosophy and Education
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.
