PHL 2600 - Philosophy of Education

Credits: 4
“Educate” comes from a Latin word meaning to lead out of. But when we educate, what do we lead students out of and what do we lead them into? Does education develop our nature, or reform it? How has education been viewed over history? Students will engage in critical examination of both classic and contemporary texts. Special attention will be paid to three themes: democracy and education, the role of education in a pluralistic society, and the special challenges of Catholic higher education.  Area Requirement for Philosophy:  Ethics, Knowledge
