Module overview

This module aims to introduce students without an academic background in philosophy to the distinct nature and significance of philosophical work on educational issues. The focus will be on questions of philosophical method and how these can be distinguished from the methods of empirical enquiry. Students will study the structure of philosophical arguments and the different ways in which philosophers construct and develop arguments, through a close reading of a selection of philosophical texts. The texts chosen will reflect central philosophical questions and concerns and will include both work by contemporary philosophers and classic texts from different philosophical traditions, with an emphasis on work that addresses educationally relevant concepts, questions and concerns.
