Ericson, David P.
Educational Theory, v47 n4 p501-11 Fall 1997
An examination of four books on the philosophy of education presents four strategies for introducing students to the subject: treating it as the history of the philosophy of education; presenting it as a clash of ism's (e.g., realism, idealism, and rationalism); engaging students in critical dialog; and using a problem- or concept-oriented approach.
