Fifty hours of my video lectures on Philosophy of Education are available free online here at my website or at YouTube via these playlists.
* The course lectures cover issues from metaphysics, epistemology, human nature, and ethics that are directly relevant to education.
* The lectures also cover major philosophies — Idealism, Realism, Pragmatism, Behaviorism, Existentialism, Marxism, Objectivism, and Postmodernism — that have enormously influenced contemporary education.
* Along the way, we read and discuss excerpts from major philosophers who have influenced educational practice: Plato, Locke, Kant, Marx, Dewey, Rand, Sartre, Skinner, and others. The accompanying readings are available here.
