   schema:description "The book concludes with an interpretation of policy-making in education, and reflections on the ideal education of a policy-maker. It emphasises human symbolism, choice, temporal continuity, and self-determination as indispensible elements of any adequate philosophy of education. Of Human Potential will be of interest to a broad range of philosophers, educators and social scientists."@en ;

   schema:description "Dad Rules was written with the intention of putting a smile on the face of any man who has navigated--or is about to navigate--the often curvy, pothole-filled road of fatherhood. Authors Mike Milligan and Tom Lynch know first-hand that the responsibility of being behind the wheel on such an unpredictable journey can often be an unsettling experience, especially with a two-year-old in the backseat happily smearing his ice cream over every inch of available window, and your wife next to you offering her always helpful advice to "Slow down," "Turn left at the next...aw, you missed it," and "I knew we should have brought a map."

   schema:description "The concept of potential plays a prominent role in the thinking of parents, educators and planners the world over. Although this concept accurately reflects central features of human nature, its current use perpetuates traditional myths of fixity, harmony and value, calculated to cause untold mischief in social and educational practice. First published in 1985, Israel Scheffler's book aims to demythologise the concept of potential. He shows its roots in genuine aspects of human nature. but at the same time frees it from outworn philosophical myths by means of analytical reconstruction-thereby improving both its theoretical and its practical applicability."@en ;
   schema:description "Routledge Revivals is a new initiative aiming to re-issue a wealth of academic works which have long been unavailable.

   schema:description "R>Let Dad Rules act as your personal GPS. With humor and insight, it will guide you from that life-altering moment when your wife says, "Honey, we need to talk," all the way through pregnancy and birthing classes, the birthing process itself, infancy and toddlerhood, adolescence, the teen years, and, finally, the day eighteen years later when your little bundle of joy leaves the nest (possibly to return shortly after, jobless and in desperate need of a haircut)."@en ;
