Theories of Value and Problems of Education. Readings in Philosophy of Education Series.
Smith, Philip G., Ed.
This volume, intended for advanced and specialized teacher education courses, approaches educational problems from one of the standard divisions of general philosophy. Noting that substantive or normative ethics has dominated the literature of values and education, rather than meta-ethnics or analytical ethics, the editor states that his intention was to bring together selections that deal with the bearing of general value theory upon the everyday valuing and evaluating that is involved in the conduct of schooling. 18 selections from books, monographs, and journals are grouped in three sections, each of which is introduced by the editor. The sections are: 1) The Nature of Value Theory and Its Relevance for Education with Selections by Henry D. Aiken, C. I. Lewis, Paul W. Taylor, J. Donald Butler, Kingsley Price, and Clive Beck; 2) Educational Objectives and the Conduct of Schooling, with selections by William F. Frankena, Harry S. Broudy, James F. Perry and Philip G. Smith, and A. Stafford Clayton; and, 3) Moral Education, with selections by Mark Twain, Jonas F. Soltis, Israel Scheffler, R. S. Peters, R. W. Sleeper, Thomas D. Perry, and Jean Piaget. (Author/DJB)
