Reflections on PESA: 1969-2009
Snook, Ivan
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v41 n7 p757-760 Dec 2009
Bruce Haynes ponders why "a self-appointed steering committee ..." produced a draft constitution for adoption at the first meeting in 1970. The author suspects that it had to do not only with the ideas of the people so appointed, but with the fact that Richard Peters spent several months at ANU in 1969 and, the author presumes, was invited to visit other centres in Australia where there were a number of philosophers of education who called the first meeting to discuss the setting up of Philosophy of Education Society of Australasia (PESA). This article presents the author's reflections on PESA during the period 1969-2009.
