Lectures on Philosophy of Education

My Philosophy of Education course lectures on video. This fifteen-part video course covers key philosophical issues that bear directly upon education. We discuss the works of major philosophersapple-88x50 — Plato, Locke, Kant, Dewey, Montessori, and others — who have influenced education greatly, and we compare several systems of educational philosophy — Existentialism, Objectivism, Marxism, Postmodernism, and others — including their implications for education in practice.
Full playlists of the lectures are also at YouTube.
