About the Book

This important new book presents a 'dual strand' argument: Firstly, it gives a comprehensive account of methods in philosophy of education, with leading international figures in the field of writing from a variety of methodological and epistemological perspectives. Secondly, it examines their application in the 'real world' of education, using the topical area of children's rights as a basis for investigation. It will therefore be of interest to philosophers and educationalists alike.
