Summary

Chambliss presents clearly the position that educational theory is a theory of conduct rather than an applied science. It is theory of conduct, not about conduct. He reveals the richness of this idea and examines the various ways it has been discussed in the works of Aristotle, Rousseau, Dewey, and others. He also demonstrates its timeliness for today's educators by presenting it as an antidote to the current widespread tendency of trying to quantify conduct, to treat education as a thing to be measured.

"The unique focus on conduct brings relief from much educational literature on behavior and it allows Chambliss to expand educational philosophy to include Clement, Salisbury, Vico, and Condillac. One of the book's strengths is its introduction of these thinkers into the realm of educational philosophy. Chambliss does a good job of surveying in a selective manner and of integrating the results into a coherent pattern of interpretation." -- David A. Nyberg, State University of New York at Buffalo

"Educational Theory as Theory of Conduct is very scholarly. It is informed by extensive reading, and shows a deep sensitivity to the people and issues discussed." -- Philip L. Smith, Ohio State University

J. J. Chambliss is Professor of Education at Rutgers University.
