SUMMARY

This alphabetic guide offers a critical analysis of the central and also of the more important controversial concepts in educational theory and practice. The authors address each idea or issue by means of an essay-length analysis. Examples of the types of questions considered are: "Can educational needs be assessed and, if so, in what way?"; "Is there any reason to take creativity tests seriously?"; "What is the status of a value judgement?"; "What distinct types of understanding, if any, are there?"; "What is the point of a liberal education?" and, "How do language and thought relate to one another?". This second edition has been enhanced by about 25% with more material on recapitulation, memory and psychological topics. The work is intended for the use of students, researchers, teachers and administrators in the field of education.Barrow, Robin is the author of 'Critical Dictionary of Educational Concepts An Appraisal of Selected Ideas and Issues in Educational Theory and Practice', published 1990 under ISBN 9780807730584 and ISBN 0807730580.
