What is education? And who cares? Philosophers from Plato to the modern day seem to have done, although the numerous writings which they have left us on the subject leaves many bewildered. For those who want to find a way through, this book provides an answer, offering a survey that guides the reader through the key terms and concepts and opens up the interest and relevance of the subject for the modern day. Over 150 concepts are described and analysed, and, together with an extensive bibliography, the work should provide a useful guide and reference resource.
