'Open', 'informal', and 'humanistic' are words used to describe new styles of education which depart from ordinary or traditional education. Too often, however, these adjectives are used in a strongly polemical or self-justifying rather than analytical way. Often too, the grounds for accepting or rejecting open education are political or moral, instead of being based on a consideration of the nature of open education and its strength and weaknesses. This collection of essays is central to the debate on open education, analyzing the important concepts in the field. The contributions, all written by authorities on the philosophy of education, deal with problems of definition, knowledge, socialization, freedom, cultural perspective, and unique meanings and metaphors.

Three lines of argument are central to this book: that Plato's views as expounded in the Republic indicate that he was a utilitarian; that utilitarianism is the only acceptable ethical theory; that these conclusions have significant repercussions for education. Throughout the book the exposition of utilitarianism and the interpretation of the Republic are closely linked. The author assesses the nature of recent Platonic criticism and provides a critical summary of the Republic. He expounds and defends utilitarianismn and examines in greater depth the consequences for education of accepting a utilitarian position, showing how, for example, from this standpoint such key terms in educational debate as 'autonomy' and 'self-development' must be reassessed as educational objectives.

A companion volume to Moral Judgement from Childhood to Adolescence specially written for teachers and students of education. This volume includes analysis of the broad stages in the developmental pattern; of the key variables that must shape it, and of their function in moral judgement; and of the principles that must lie behind a moral education that has autonomy as its goal.

In the World Library of Educationalists series, international scholars compile career-long selections of what they judge to be among their finest pieces so the world has access to them in a single manageable volume. Readers are able to follow the themes and strands and see how their work contributes to the development of the field. Over more than three decades, Professor Ronald Barnett has acquired a distinctive position as a leading philosopher of the university and higher education, and this volume brings together 15 of his key writings, particularly papers from leading journals. This volume also includes, as his introductory chapter, an intellectual autobiography, in which Professor Barnett recounts the history of his scholarship and writing, traces its development across five stages, and identifies the themes and sources of inspiration that lie within his corpus of work. Ronald Barnett has described his corpus of work as a social philosophy of the university that is at once conceptual, critical, practical and imaginative. His concepts of criticality, critical interdisciplinarity, supercomplexity and the ecological university have been taken up in the literature across the world. Through telling examples, and with an incisive clarity of writing, Ronald Barnett’s scholarship has helped to illuminate in fresh ways and reorient practices in the university and in higher education. The chapters in this volume reveal all of these qualities so making this volume a compelling overview of a passionate and yet constructive critic of the university.

George Edward Moore (1873 - 1958) gehört mit Bertrand Russell, Ludwig Wittgenstein und ihren Vorläufern Bernard Bolzano, Franz Brentano und Alexius Meinong zu den Begründern der analytischen Philosophie. Während die anderen genannten Philosophen auch in Deutschland stets große Beachtung gefunden haben, war dies bei G.E. Moore nicht der Fall. Dies ist um so erstaunlicher als Moore in einem ganz besonders gut verständlichen Stil schreibt und seine Philosophie stets vom common sense ihren Ausgang nimmt. Die historischen Grundlagen der Philosophie G.E. Moores liegen im englischen Empirismus und besonders bei Franz Brentano und Alexius Meinong. Der ontos verlag veröffentlicht bis 2008 eine dreibändigen Ausgabe in deutscher Übersetzung insbesondere der frühen Schriften Moores, die vor allem erkenntnistheoretische und metaphysische Themen behandeln. Übersicht über die drei Bände: Band 1 Grundprobleme der Philosophie Übersetzt von Björn Bordon Band 2 Philosophische Studien Übersetzt von Sebastian Muders Band 3 Die frühen Essays Übersetzt von Björn Bordon
