Regenerating the Philosophy of Education: What Happened to Soul? Counterpoints: Studies in the Postmodern Theory of Education, Volume 352
Kincheloe, Joe L., Ed.; Hewitt, Randall, Ed.
Peter Lang New York
In this volume, Joe L. Kincheloe and Randall Hewitt have gathered an impressive and scholarly group of authors who argue for the continuing importance of the philosophy of education. Reviving the notion that philosophy is an essential foundation in the study and research of education, contributors to this volume directly confront the evisceration of the topic by those who are interested in commercializing learning. Contrary to the current shift away from foundations courses, this volume proves that pre-service teachers need an intense awareness of the subjects that comprise the core of their knowledge. Philosophy of education is central to this concept. This volume is an excellent classroom resource, and is essential reading for all undergraduate and graduate students in schools of education. Contents of this book include: (1) A Preface (Randall Hewitt); (2) The Philosophical Soul: Where Did It Come From? Where Did It Go? (Shirley R. Steinberg); (3) Eyes of the Education Faculty: Derrida, Philosophy, and Teacher Education in the Postmodern University (Dennis Carlson); (4) Lost Soul: The Eradication of Philosophy from Colleges of Education (Robert V.
