Summary

This book shows clearly how philosophy can be applied to education in an effective manner. It is applied metaphysics in the fullest sense—a truly practical philosophy book.

Robert Brumbaugh shows convincingly how our current educational practices are based on a metaphysics derived from seventeenth-century physics. Our modern understanding of reality implies a very different view of education and very different educational practices. He also shows how and why this new process view of education differs from the “back to basics” diagnosis and prescription.

“Nothing on Whitehead and education compares with this in scope and depth. To my knowledge, nothing on education written recently has this degree of philosophical sophistication.” — David Griffin

Robert S. Brumbaugh is Professor of Philosophy at Yale University. A former president of the Metaphysical Society of America, he is the author of many books and articles. His Philosophers of Greece was recently published by SUNY Press.
