This book covers the philosophy of education, the branch of philosophy concerned with understanding, criticizing, and justifying educational ideas and practices. It looks at important thinkers and attempts to understand their educational ideas as well as looks at an important concept or idea in the larger social and intellectual world, such as creativity or democracy, and examines how that idea intersects with educational issues.
