Abstract:

This book brings together a distinguished group of philosophers of education dealing with important thought often neglected: ideas and concerns in teaching, learning, and teacher education. The authors engage in an extended discussion of the moral dimensions of teaching that leads in a fresh direction, distinct though related, to the important work of Goodlad and others in recent years. Nel Noddings's foreword places the book firmly in current debates about teaching and learning, particularly stressing its importance to teacher education in difficult times.
