Further Reflections on a Catholic Philosophy of Education
D'Souza, Mario O.
International Studies in Catholic Education, v10 n1 p2-14 2018
Readers of this journal will recall two articles on the Catholic philosophy education: "Towards a contemporary Catholic philosophy of education," by Brendan Carmody SJ, [Carmody, Brendan. (2011). "Towards a Contemporary Catholic Philosophy of Education." "International Studies in Catholic Education" 3 (2): 106-119], and "Towards a contemporary philosophy of Catholic education: Moving the debate forward"' by Sean Whittle [Whittle, Sean. (2014). "Towards a Contemporary Philosophy of Catholic Education: Moving the Debate Forward." "International Studies in Catholic Education" 6 (1): 46-59]. Both contributions have helped to revitalise interest and discussion in this field by reflecting in quite distinct ways, one philosophical the other theological. The recent book, "A Catholic Philosophy of Education: The Church and Two Philosophers", by Mario O. D'Souza, takes a philosophical approach, and is another recent contribution to the field. This essay is divided into three parts. The first considers the contribution of Carmody's article; second, what Whittle has added to the field; and finally, the light that D'Souza's book sheds on this discussion.
