"Happiness and Education": Tilting at Windmills?
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v45 n5 p498-501 2013
This essay explores the question: Is Nel Noddings a visionary who sees past the constraints of contemporary education or is she, like Don Quixote, madly tilting at windmills in her description and defense of happiness as an educational aim? Viewing the educational aim of happiness as an ideal raises substantial challenges for the practicality of Noddings's ideas.
