About this book For two reasons, we are particularly proud to include Wolfgang Brezinka's Philosophy of Educational Knowledge in this series of books on Philosophy of Education. Thefirst is the philosophicalinterestoftheworkitself-its remarkablescholarship and the importance ofthe philosophical positionswill beobvious to allreaders. The secondisthat it brings to the English-speaking world a wonderful example ofeducational philosophy as now being practiced in the German-speaking world. All too often philosophers in the Anglo-American tradition have not seen the sort of perspective on educational thinking that infuses this work.
Changes in culture, politics and technology - in the river of social life - constantly raise issues prompting philosophical commentary. The recent revolution in information and communication technologies - a shift in the riverbed of learning - arguably will by contrast demand a thorough-going reconstruction in philosophy of education itself.
Is the riverside itself in need of re-construction? Any claim that a philosophical reconstruction is necessary requires succinct and convincing grounds.
Dewey had quite a knack for summing up such grounds in a few paragraphs. Through these changes: the face of the earth is making over, even as to its physical forms; political boundaries are wiped out and moved about. I restrict myself to two of these. Bauman Bauman presents a description of the postmodern social life.
Young people today face demands in forming identities and building capabilities for adult living they no longer can satisfy - the situation has become simply too liquid and our educational arrangements too outdated and largely irrelevant. Derrida By contrast, Derrida presents a philosophical response to postmodernity.
Dewey also presents a world without fixity, but exhibiting some stability insofar as older habits continue to meet evolving situations. For Dewey concepts evolve to meet changing needs. What new philosophy of education results from this recontextualization?
The second part of the book can be read as their notebook as they worked their way from Dewey into postmodern philosophy. Readers seeking new philosophical formulations or educational projects will have to repeat these thought-experiments, perhaps throwing other contemporary thinkers into the mix.

Waks, S. Pring gives a succinct account of the different philosophical positions and makes a balanced evaluation of their strong and weak points As much a primer in philosophy of education as a specialist work on the philosophy of educational research it is lucid and concise on topics ranging from the aim[s] of education to the nature of knowledge.
An articulate and lucid work that reflects the author's depth of experience and devoted commitment to improving our understanding of the field of education. His book shows that informative research on educational practice must go beyond the methods of trustworthy empirical inquiry to consider issues of purpose and meaning.
This outstanding work, cogent and readable, should be a required text for every doctoral student in education and, more generally in the social sciences.
The underlying, and sometimes explicit, political themes should also put it on the reading list of educational politicians and all who oversee research funding. You can unsubscribe from newsletters at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in any newsletter.
