Neuroscience and Education: At Best a Civil Partnership: A Response to Schrag
Davis, Andrew
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v47 n1 p31-36 Feb 2013
In this response, I agree with much of what Schrag says about the principled limits of neuroscience to inform educators' decisions about approaches to learning. However, I also raise questions about the extent to which discoveries about "deficits" in brain function could possibly help teachers. I dispute Schrag's view that externalism/internalism debates in the philosophy of mind are relatively arcane and lack implications for the importance or otherwise for education of discoveries about the brain.
