A New History of Educational Philosophy

By James S. Kaminsky | Go to book overview

NOTES
1.
The aristocracy, civil service, and philosophy have always been tightly related. The relationship remains alive and well in England, as evidenced by the important educational work of philosophers such as Baroness Mary Warnock on government commissions. It is also shown by the important governmental work with which curriculum developers cum philosophers such as Richard Pring, Chair and Professor of Education at Oxford University, are constantly involved.
2.
Nevertheless, both the vice-chancellors and the principals of teacher training colleges also believed that if there were anything to know about education, then a first step in raising the status and prestige of teacher education might be found in raising its academic standards. In time this task was inherited by educational philosophy in general.
3.
On the other hand, educational philosophy's prosperity in the late 1960s was certainly a result of the success of R. S. Peters's work.
4.
Both T. Percy Nunn and Fred Clark were transitional figures. Interesting and important in their time, their work quickly lost importance in the professionalized atmosphere of the sixties.
5.
Malet Street was the early address of the London Institute's Department of Philosophy of Education. Later it moved to a terrace house close to the main building of the institute in Woburn Square, and now it is situated in the main building.
6.
These men's concerns were with political reform, social welfare, or academic philosophy. It would take another generation to find scholars who would give their lives and careers to philosophy of education.
7.
The New Education Fellowship was formed in 1921 in Calais. It was a clearinghouse for disseminating the ideas of progressive education. It presented the ideas of both European and American proponents of "new education". Its journal The New Era presented the ideas of Dr. Montessori ( Italy); Decroly ( Belgium); Claparede ( Switzerland); Dr. Reddie ( England); and Colonel Parker ( U. S. A.). (see Armytage 1967, 74)
8.
To be more precise, L. A. Reid was invited by the then director Dr. G. B. Jeffery to be the first occupant of the new chair.
9.
The appointment of both Reid and Peters is a demonstration of the English faith in philosophy as well as an admission of the disrepute and "hard times" that many teacher training colleges had fallen upon.
10.
The similarity may be coincidental, but there is some parallel between Reid's Easter seminars and with the Easter reading parties that G. E. Moore organized from 1898 to 1914 that were so influential in the development of English philosophy.
11.
Reid's books are: Knowledge and truth ( 1923), A study in aesthetics ( 1931), Creative morality ( 1937), A preface to faith ( 1939), The rediscovery of belief ( 1945), Ways of knowledge and experience ( 1960), Philosophy and education ( 1962), Meaning in the arts ( 1970), and Ways of understanding and education ( 1986).
12.
Laing along with another individual called Jones were tutors that Reid employed to "improve on my entrance qualification" such that he might attend the University of Edinburgh. Laing was his English tutor and Jones was his tutor for science and mathematics.
13.
Peters's attempt to demonstrate the conceptual confusions and low level of argumentation that diminished the theoretical power of psychology is presented in The concept of motivation ( 1958). For example, Peters wrote: "My thesis is that
