Philosophy of Education

The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy, Volume 3

David M. Steiner, Editor

The papers in this volume of The Proceedings of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy, drawn from several symposia and different panels, show a striking convergence across very different perspectives. To a remarkable degree the collection as a whole has embraced a synthesis of Protagoras, Dewey, John Stuart Mill, and the ideal speech community evoked two decades ago in the work of Jürgen Habermas. To summarize the credo, philosophy and education, or rather philosophy as education, should make the world safe for pluralism, open ended communication and experimentation, and the quest for an inclusive social consensus.
