Philosophies of Education | Dominican University College

Philosophers who think about education are usually moved to do so by the flawed methods of education they themselves endured. In this course we shall read Plato, Montaigne, Descartes, Shakespeare, Ivan Illich and Michael Oakshott both as theorists and as critics of education. Each student will be asked to write a paper defending one of these theorists as coming closer to a correct view of education than than any of the others.
