Richard Peters and Valuing Authenticity
Degenhardt, M. A. B.
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v43 suppl s1 p209-222 Oct 2009
Richard Peters has been praised for the authenticity of his philosophy, and inquiry into aspects of the development of his philosophy reveals a profound authenticity. Yet authenticity is something he seems not to favour. The apparent paradox is resolved by observing historical changes in the understanding of authenticity as an important value. Possibilities are noted for further explorations as to how to understand and value it as an educational ideal.
