My Philosophical Foundations of Education course

school_of_athensI’m teaching a graduate-level course on the Philosophical Foundations of Education (EDUC 605) this semester.

We cover several key philosophical issues that bear directly upon education, read the works of several philosophers — Plato, Locke, Kant, Dewey, and others — who have influenced education greatly, and we look at several systems of educational philosophy.

I’ve also invited three guest speakers this semester: Jerry Kirkpatrick, a philosopher of education and professor of business at Cal State Pomona, and Joshua Hall, an economist at Beloit College with expertise in the political economy of education, and Roberto Salinas León, a philosophy Ph.D. and President and CEO of the Mexico Business Forum, Mexico City. Professor Kirkpatrick will be at Rockford College on October 28 and Professor Hall’s and Dr. León’s dates are TBA.

Here are PDF file of the syllabus and schedule for the course and the supplemental 59-page booklet of readings:
