How Can Philosophy of Education Be Both Viable and Good?
Bredo, Eric
Educational Theory, v52 n3 p263-71 Sum 2002
Agrees with Rene Arcilla that philosophy of education is a marginalized discourse caught in the tension between academic (philosophical) credibility and practical (educational) relevance, suggesting that the greatest threat is in failing at both. The essay offers historical background and context for this debate, showing how it has recently resurfaced in various ways, and characterizes the current state of the field as one of "identity confusion."
