"Theories of Education: Studies of Significant Innovation in Western Educational Thought" is the second edition of a systematic analysis of the major educational theories of European culture. Theories of Education provides an introduction to the theory and philosophy of education for beginning students in the subject. The readings are of sufficient length to give representative coverage of the ideas of the individual theorists and are each introduced by a stimulating commentary which provides philosophical and historical context. Central issues in education that recur throughout the book include the nature and aims of education, choice of curriculum content, the teacher- pupil relationship, freedom and authority, moral development, and the role of the state in education.
