PHIL 207- Philosophy of Education--Sample Syllabus

Offered with civic engagement enhancement: Fall 2015

This course is an introduction to seminal texts, central questions, and rival traditions in philosophy of education. Our inquiry will revolve around four main questions,

  • What is a Child?
  • What is Education?
  • Why Schooling?
  • Is Philosophy a form of Education?

We will think critically in a community with fellow thinkers about questions that are central, common and contestable. We will read  carefully, will interpret works from different authors, and will communicate  our thinking in spoken and written form. This course has a Civic Engagement component. Students will participate in projects of “ Philosophy in Schools” with the local k-12 schools.

 The course is also an invitation to develop an appreciation of the role of philosophy for personal and communal growth, and to form one’s own philosophy of education. Authors: Dewey, Rousseau, Plato, hooks, Lipman, Arendt.
