‘Educational Horizons' explores the nature of the relationship between education and the reality problem from a variety of perspectives. In the process of doing so, a variety of topics that shape, orient, and influence the manner in which education is understood and applied are engaged through critical reflection. Some of the topics explored during this process of critical reflection are: The life and ideas of John Holt; cognitive development; human nature; the construction of social reality; reason; several landmark court cases involving the evolution v. creationism debate; Noam Chomsky; Sam Harris; propaganda, sovereignty; qualities of a teacher; epistemology; hermeneutical field theory, as well as some rather revolutionary ideas concerning education and the Constitution..

Ireland is in the grip of a postmodern cultural deconstruction on many levels. The traditional 'grand narratives' are increasingly viewed with suspicion and disenchantment as Ireland struggles to understand its evolving identity. There is a growing need for comprehensive interdisciplinary research that will facilitate teaching and learning in this rapidly changing cultural and societal context.<BR> This book brings a fresh approach to Irish educational debates, in which qualified educational specialists engage collaboratively in interdisciplinary reflection on their own teaching and learning. The volume addresses a multiplicity of key issues in Irish education (with a particular focus on the primary sector), including teacher formation, curriculum development, teaching and learning methods, educational policy, philosophy, history, religious education, ethics, special needs education and transformative education. The book aims both to critique new educational policy and practice and to identify the key challenges in providing innovative, imaginative and cutting-edge teaching and learning in contemporary Irish schools.
