Proceedings of the Annual Conference of the Midwest Philosophy of Education Society (Detroit, Michigan, November 12-13, 1982).
Smith, Michael C., Ed.; Williams, Jack, Ed.
Twelve conference papers address four educational themes. Three papers on intellectual life in the school deal with the philosophy of George S. Counts; the nature, purpose, and value of liberal education; and educational consequences of the idea of reason. Four papers on educational alternatives treat the educational philosophy of Ivan Illich, hermeneutics and paideia, the basic ingredients of alternative education, and mainstream education for older adults. Two papers on school administration address organizational theory as educational philosophy and accountability and responsibility. On the theme of John Dewey, two articles discuss the philosopher's theory of inquiry and his views on war and the League of Nations. An additional paper on philosophy for everyone, the conference presidential address, is included. (LP)
