"It Was the Best of Times, It Was the Worst of Times …": Philosophy of Education in the Contemporary World
Roberts, Peter
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v34 n6 p623-634 Nov 2015
This article considers the state of philosophy of education in our current age and assesses prospects for the future of the field. I argue that as philosophers of education, we live in both the best of times and the worst of times. Developments in one key organisation, the Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia, are examined in relation to broader international trends. Informed by the work of Pierre Hadot, I also reflect on what it might mean to talk of philosophy of education as a way of life in the contemporary world.
