The Philosophical Nature of Teachers--Graduate and Undergraduate.
Starky, John D.; Baar, Rita L.
This study of the nature of the philosophical beliefs of graduate and undergraduate teacher education students compares secondary and elementary undergraduates, as well as secondary and elementary graduates, as to ontology, epistemology, and axiology. The Ames Philosophical Belief Inventory was administered to 454 students in attendance of classes at Northern Illinois University; and the results of Realism, Idealism, Pragmatism, Existentialism, and Phenomenology are displayed showing the leading philosophy among this group to be Phenomenology, followed closely by Existentialism and then by Pragmatism. Realism ranked fourth with very little Idealism being displayed but with some significant differences among some of the groups. (Author)
