Indoctrination is an important concept in educational philosophy. It bears on many areas of study, including ethics, epistemology and philosophy of science, and opens up new paths of investigation into such questions as classroom method and the rights of parents and their children. This book brings together a number of key articles which discuss indoctrination in relation to aspects of religion and morals, dotrines and moral responsibility. This volume combines both American and English interpretations of a crucial idea in the philosophy of education and helps bridge the gap between the teaching of the subject in the USA and the UK.

A thesis on the necessary differentiation of knowledge into logically distinct forms is outlined, and is defended against recent philosophical criticisms. Its implications for curriculum planning are examined, with particular reference to the urgent problems of adeqately characterizing liberal education and those forms of moral and religious education that are appropriate in maintained schools.

After discussing different theories of the aims of education, whether mechanistic or organic, the author addresses practical issues - for example, about the curriculum, the distinction between education and indoctrination, the role of authority and discipline, and the place of religious and moral teaching. Finally he deals with some important aspects of education and the influence of different political structures on the philosophy of education.

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.
