Individualism versus Socialism in American Education: Rereading Mortimer Adler and "The Paidea Proposal."
Weltman, Burton
Educational Theory, v52 n1 p61-79 Win 2002
Discusses Adler's "The Paideia Proposal," which raised the issue of socialism versus individualism in order to rally educational reformers to move the educational debate out of a cycle of academic bickering. The paper examines the intellectual road that led Adler to socialism and reexamines the book in light of his socialist views, suggesting that Adler's intellectual biography challenges intellectuals.
