Education's Three Old Ideas, and a Better Idea.
Egan, Kieran
Journal of Curriculum Studies, v31 n3 p257-67 May-June 1999
Discusses three educational ideas, demonstrating their incompatibility: (1) a focus on socialization; (2) Plato's notion that education is the process of seeking truth about reality; and (3) Jean-Jacques Rousseau's idea that the mind undergoes a developmental process and education furthers its development. Argues that education is learning to use certain intellectual tools. (CMK)
