'This is an impressive collection of contributions from many of the leading figures in the field of philosophy of education in the Western world. It is wide ranging in its scope and coverage of the field and offers perhaps the best single point of reference for anyone wanting to see what the subject has to offer to an understanding of education as a field of practice, policy and enquiry -- and that, as these well crafted pieces demonstrate, is a lot' - David Bridges, Professor Emeritus, University of East Anglia, Professorial Fellow, University of Cambridge Faculty of Education

A comprehensive and accessible guide for anyone exploring the philosophy of education.
Excellent as it give a good view into the research available and make suggestions for how some themes may develop further. I recommend it to education and training learners at any level of study. It is easy to use and has insightful articles and the lay out is clear.
Excellent book highly recommended
Very useful introductory text with a wide audience appeal. The content is challenging yet accessible.
This is a good introduction to philosophy for undergraduate students.
This is an exceptionally comprehensive text, detailing many, if not all of the pertinent issues for the undergraduate philosophy of education course. It is pitched at an appropriate level, concisely setting out the main ideas and developing them clearly. The apparent progression and development of concepts throughout the text makes it a particularly useful reference tool for both lecturers and students alike.
It is also affordable, which will be very much welcomed by our students!
On the whole this is an excellent text: the majority of the chapters are clear and challenge readers to think about important issues in education. This is a very useful addition to course texts in the area of Philosophy of Education.
This is an immensely useful resource across several courses that I manage. The need to understand the Philosophy of Education can be usefully embedded within Psychology, Counselling and Health and Socail Care Courses considering as it does so many areas of theory and educational thinking including models of learning. I have deemed it essential reading and recommended it as part of our next purchase order within the Learning and Resource centre for the academic institution of which I am a part.
We use the book this fall on the master and Ph.D level. The students and teachers are confident with the book. It gives a wide and deep view over philosophy of education in the contemporary educational research society.
Very informative and thought provoking
This book is an excellent text and it covers such a broad range of subjects that any philosophy of education course could engage with.
I would certainly want students to use this book as a recommended wider reading text in order for them to deepen their knowledge of the subject of philosophy of education in all its form.
A great reader and a challenging text for from first year undergrad to MA Level
I have recommended that this text become part of the essential reading list for our new module 'Philosophy and Education'. The structure of the book allows novice philosophy students to delve into this complex subject area at a level that supports their emerging understanding. It brings together a wealth of areas for further debate and discussion and sections such as the Gazetteer of Educational Thinkers (Chapter 13) aim to expand students' knowledge of past and contemporary thinkers. I am particularly pleased that a chapter on feminism and education is included.
This gives good, up-to-date coverage of a good range of issues in Philosophy of Education. I will be recommending it to our students.
I am still working on the book because I will be using it next semester. I will provid you with the feedback in due course
This handbook will be useful to student teachers on our course for both their Reflective Professional and Teaching and Research M-level modules. Each chapter can be referred to in relation to an aspect of the PGCE and tutors have also commented on its authoritative and well designed content.
