The Value of Knowledge/Rationality or the Knowledge/Rationality of Value?: Implications for Education.
Drewe, Sheryle
Studies in Philosophy and Education, v20 n3 p235-44 May 2001
Looks at the notion made popular in the 1960's by Paul Hirst and Richard Peters that knowledge is intrinsic to the educational enterprise. Suggests that the acquisition of knowledge remains the primary justification for educational experiences, and proposes a concept of knowledge as "rationality's database". (Contains 16 references.)
