This title, first published in 1990, engages in the current debates about the teaching of literacy and the reform of education. Tell us if something is incorrect.

Philosophy of Education has an important role to play in preparing for a career in teaching. First, it enables teachers to acquire a grasp of the conceptual field of education and an ability to find their way around the often contested views within that field, which in turn impinge upon the normative structure of particular education systems. Second, it enables them to understand better the conceptual debates that involve the subjects that they are teaching.

People are always calling for reform in education and some say the whole system needs to be completely revamped.

People are always calling for reform in education and some say the whole system needs to be completely revamped.

In this contribution to current debates about the teaching of literacy and the reform of education, Christopher Winch attacks the present dichotomy in theories of educational achievement between biological inheritance and environmental influence. He draws on philosophy to take a critical, detailed look at the concerns of contemporary education and to explore the ways in which differences in educational achievement are interpreted. He shows the limitations of IQ theory and the verbal deficit theories, associated with Basil Bernstein, and concludes by suggesting that we need to rethink the traditional distinction between theoretical and practical reason if we are to achieve the goals of mass education within the constraints of a democratic political system. This book should be of interest to researchers in linguistics and psychology of education.
