It may be surprising that the thought of a medieval theologian still informs many areas of intellectual debate, but there continues to be lively interest in the work of Thomas Aquinas. He considers the most radical questions for our thinking about education: what is a human being? what does it mean to learn? what does it mean to teach? what does it mean to know, to understand, and to search for the truth? In this text, Vivian Boland offers a short biography of Aquinas focused on his personal experiences as a student and teacher. The book then provides a critical exposition of the texts in which Aquinas develops his views about education and includes a short account of the reception and influence of his thinking. Finally, it considers in some detail the most significant points of contact between Aquinas's educational thought and current concerns – his conviction about the goodness of the world, his holistic understanding of human experience and his contributions to virtue theory – and highlights the continuing relevance and influence of this work and thinking within educational philosophy today.

Michel Foucault's influential work spanned a wide array of intellectual disciplines, his writings having been widely taken up in philosophy, history, literary criticism and political theory. Focusing on the implications of Foucault's theories for education, whilst characterizing them as provocative, problematizing, poetic and playful, Lynn Fendler describes the historical context for understanding Foucault's ground breaking critiques. Including a discussion of his major theories of disciplinary power, genealogy, discourse and subjectivity, this text provides generative explanations of concepts, using analogies to the Internet and to food, in order to connect Foucault's theories to everyday experience.

This text offers a major reassessment of the life and thought of the distinguished 19th century industrial philanthropist and educational reformer, Robert Owen. In a period when Owen's radical new visions for learning and teaching, adult and vocational pedagogy and social transformation are receiving fresh and global attention, Robert Davis and Frank O'Hagan place Owen's thought right at the heart of the Enlightenment advocacy of popular, democratic mass education. Tracing both the ancestry and the legacy of Owen's reforming spirit, they also offer a critical appraisal of the relevance of his ideas for the development of education at all levels and stages in the challenging contexts of international 21st century education.

After setting Augustine's thought firmly within the context of his life and times, Ryan Topping examines in turn the causes of education (the purposes, pedagogy, curriculum, and limits of learning) as Augustine understood them. Augustine's towering influence over Medieval and Renaissance theorists – from Hugh of St Victor, to Aquinas, to Erasmus – is traced. The book concludes by drawing Augustine into dialogue with contemporary philosophers, exploring the influence of his meditations on higher education and suggesting how his ideas can reinvigorate for our generation the project of liberal learning.

Anthony Kenny is one of the leading philosophers of the post war years. In this brilliant new book, Kenny writes honestly about his own struggles with belief, and how he now sees himself as neither a theist or an atheist. His intellectual honesty will touch the hearts and minds of countless people. Kenny prowls at the frontiers of theology and philosophy and so commands interest from a very wide spectrum of readers - those who believe and those who find it hard to do so. In this respect his position is unique. Profoundly influenced by Wittgenstein, he has also written important books on St Thomas Aquinas and Descartes.

Jacques Maritain (1882-1973) was a Neo-Thomist philosopher who taught in France and the United States and was French Ambassador to the Vatican from 1945-48. A Protestant who became a Roman Catholic through association with Leon Bloy, he devoted himself to the study of Thomism and its application to all aspects of modern life and urged Christian involvement in secular affairs. An Introduction to Philosophy is perhaps the most well-known and enduring of all Maritain's many books. It offers a clear and highly readable introduction to the philosophies of both Aristotle and St Thomas Aquinas.

In der Theorie und Philosophie der Kunst wird gemeinhin die Differenz der Kunst zu anderen menschlichen Praktiken betont. Dies führt dazu, dass weder die Pluralität der Künste noch die Relevanz der Kunst im Rahmen der menschlichen Lebensform hinreichend verständlich werden. Georg W. Bertram plädiert aus diesem Grund für einen Neuansatz in der Bestimmung von Kunst und verteidigt die These, dass in der Auseinandersetzung mit Kunstwerken unterschiedliche Bestimmungen der menschlichen Praxis neu ausgehandelt werden. In diesem Sinne ist Kunst eine hochproduktive reflexive Praxis im Rahmen des menschlichen Weltverhältnisses. Mehr noch: Kunst ist eine Praxis der Freiheit.
