Introduces students to key questions in philosophy of education, especially in relationship to ethics and justice. Among the philosophers we will be reading are Plato, Mary Wollstonecraft, W. E. B. Du Bois, John Dewey, Paolo Friere, James Baldwin, and Maria Lugones.
As we read and discuss, we will cover a variety of philosophical questions, including but not limited to: what is education? what are the aims and purposes of education? what is the relationship among education, justice, and ethics? how can education bring heightened attention to injustices related to race, gender, class, LGBTQ+ issues and more? what is useful knowledge? how are moral values negotiated in a pluralistic society? how do educational projects navigate what has come before with a hope to open possibilities for what might yet be developed?
