Philosophy in American education. New York and London, Harper & Bros. [] (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Brand Blanshard; Curt John Ducasse; Charles William Hendel; Arthur Edward Murphy; Max Carl Otto. Philosophy of education is the philosophical study of education and the problems surrounding it. The major point of discussion in philosophy of education is education, while the methods used are those of philosophy. This branch, similarly to philosophy of law or medicine, is usually out of the study programs in philosophy departments. This is a thick book: pages, every one densely packed with names and philosophies of education covering the last years in American education. This book appears on several reading lists (for example in Doug Wilson's Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning), as a devastating critique of the philosophy of the American education system/5(11). Featuring current information and challenging perspectives on the latest issues and forces shaping the American educational system―with scholarship that is often cited as a primary source, Joel Spring introduces readers to the historical, political, social, and legal foundations of education and to the profession of teaching in the United States/5(15).

The book Hiking with Nietzsche: On Becoming Who You Are came out in September and it is the sequel to American Philosophy: A Love Story. American Philosophy explains how philosophers like Emerson, Fuller, and William James can help you through divorce and remarriage—how they can help you re-conceive of love. John Kaag's book, "American Philosophy: A Love Story" is deeply personal as well as philosophically insightful. Kaag, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell, writes for a broad audience and, in words he uses to describe his aim, "successfully bridges the gap between philosophical and creative writing"/5.
