Provocative and thought-provoking chapters by internationally esteemed education philosophers offer readers conceptual tools with which to consider important contemporary questions, policies and practices in education. It is a book that will appeal to students and educators who wish to develop a scholarly and critical orientation to issues in education.'Kathy Hall, Professor of Education and Head of the School of Education, University College Cork, Ireland

The collection is refreshing, engaging, and serious. I highly recommend it.'James Arthur, Editor of the British Journal of Educational Studies, and Professor of Education and Civic Engagement, University of Birmingham, UK
