Philosophical Studies in Education: Proceedings of the Annual Meeting of the Ohio Valley Philosophy of Education Society (December 4-5, 1981).
Senchuk, Dennis M., Ed.
Conference papers address selected issues and problems being faced by contemporary educators. The presidential address describes how both analytic and phenomenological philosophers of education can cooperate and, for purposes of illustration, shows how this cooperation can contribute to the field of teacher education. In papers delivered at the general sessions, authors discuss the distinctions among intrinsic and extrinsic valuing, reflective thinking, and the concept of philosophic-mindedness. A variety of topics were addressed at the concurrent sessions. For example, one author considers the issue of schools which don't foster the development of their communities and which, to the contrary, are basically inimical to the feeling of community. Another author claims that to comprehend fully the nature of accountability, it is necessary to understand the nature of indoctrination and the aims of any moral education program. Other topics include corporal punishment, language barriers, an ethical code in teacher training, Dewey and moral education, Kohlberg, and discipline. The publication concludes with the 1981 minutes, a membership list, and style guidelines for manuscripts. (RM)
