This volume is unique as a systematic presentation and critique of the philosophical issues in education today. A vital new perspective is shed on some aspects of the process, and the presuppositions that are often ignored are clearly presented for public review. The nature and the character of society, and thus of education, hinges on the accepted concept of man; and, whatever this concept is in a given society, it can be based only on an article of faith. - Introduction.
