The first two chapters contain an introduction to the project and a description of the methods and procedures used by the project staff to plan the workshop, select participants, conduct the workshop, and evaluate the workshop. The bulk of the document is composed of the workshop presentations, which are given in chapter 3. Among the ten presentations included are Perspective on the Problem: What is Needed, by Marvin Feldman; Interpreting Vocational Education: The Challenge for Teacher Education, by Carl Dolce; Frankena's Model--Explanations and Applications, by James Brown; and Philosophy and Policy Implications for Vocational Education, by Albert Paulter, Jr. The fourth chapter describes evaluation procedures used to aid in making adjustments in the program and to determine the effectiveness of the workshop. The final chapter contains workshop participant and project staff conclusions and recommendations for further study of the problem of philosophic re-examination.
