Philosophy of Education in the World of Twenty-First Century Capitalism: A Response to My "Theory and Research in Education" Critics
White, John
Theory and Research in Education, v13 n2 p225-234 Jul 2015
This is a reply to six "Theory and Research in Education" commentators on views I expressed in a 2013 "Theory and Research in Education" piece about priorities in philosophy of education today. The first section is about a concession to my critics; the second, about various misconceptions in their views. The third section restates my central thesis in favour of a more practical conception of philosophy of education than is now common. The argument is set against the background of historical changes in the subject over the past half century.
