Philosophy of Education: Essays and Commentaries

By Hobert W. Burns; Charles J. Brauner | Go to book overview

Preface

This book of essays has been prepared for beginning students of educational philosophy. The subject matter deals with ends and means, scope and sequence, method and content--in short with philosophy of education as a distinct discipline.

An introduction to the ideas under review precedes each of the four parts of the book, and a précis accompanies many essays. These interstitial commentaries interpret the original ideas of the contributors and draw together and unite the topics. It is hoped that the commentaries in conjunction with the essays will extend, broaden, or act as a catalytic agent upon the understanding of the student of educational philosophy.

The difficult task of identifying titles to be reviewed was greatly facilitated by the many members of the Philosophy of Education Society who gave generously of their time to not only nominate candidates for reproduction, but also help judge them. Space unfortunately prohibits recognition of all these educational philosophers, much less adequate recognition of the importance of their efforts to the construction of the book. Needless to say, despite their friendly advice, guidance, and criticism, the authors alone accept responsibility for the selections and essays included in (or excluded from) the book.

The editors are particularly indebted to Professors Frederick C. Neff of Wayne State University and Van Cleve Morris of Rutgers University who provided us with intellectual guidance and stimulation during the formulation of the book; Professor Robert H. Beck of the University of Minnesota, who generously gave of his time to read the manuscript and provide a Foreword; Professor Gustavo F. J. Cirigliano of the University of La Plata, in Argentina, who also read and criticized the manuscript; and to four graduate assistants whose many efforts combined to smooth the path of publication: Norman Adams, Syracuse University; John Mallan, Syracuse University; Marie Parnell, Rutgers University; and Henry Woessner, Syracuse University.

A debt of gratitude is also owed to the many authors and publishers who so graciously permitted their work to be reproduced in this anthology, and
