Grossen, Earl L., Ed.
This publication contains 12 papers presented at the 28th annual meeting of the Far Western Philosophy of Education Society. A wide variety of topics is discussed. For example, one paper titled "Democracy, Models, and a Paradigm for Internship," discusses the functions of educational administration. The theme of manipulation is examined in a paper titled "The Self Undercut by Power." Philosophical perspectives concerning contemporary issues in education are examined. The content-construct validity distinction in educational test theory is treated. The salient elements of Yves Simon's position on moral development are discussed. One paper deals with pictorial depiction and visual correspondence. Another deals with the crises in our public schools today. The question "Are American models applicable to Canadian sociology or should we have a Canadian sociology of education?" is examined. Topics of other papers include accountability, moral foundations and modern education, alternative models of cultural pluralism, and failure. An author's index concludes the proceedings. (Author/RM)
