This reference book charts the influence of philosophical ideas that have had the greatest influence on education from ancient Greece to the present. The book covers such classical thinkers as Plato, Augustine, Hypatia, Locke, and Rousseau, as well as such recent figures as Montessori, Heidegger, Du Bois, and Dewey. The encyclopedia consists of 228 articles by 184 contributors, who survey the full spectrum of the philosophy of education. While the emphasis of most articles is on theory, many of them show how the significance of theory for practice.
