Indoctrination is an important concept in educational philosophy. It bears on many areas of study, including ethics, epistemology and philosophy of science, and opens up new paths of investigation into such questions as classroom method and the rights of parents and their children. This book brings together a number of key articles which discuss indoctrination in relation to aspects of religion and morals, dotrines and moral responsibility. This volume combines both American and English interpretations of a crucial idea in the philosophy of education and helps bridge the gap between the teaching of the subject in the USA and the UK.
