Recovering a Catholic Philosophy of Elementary Education

Hancock, Curtis L.

A much-needed, incisive book that looks at elementary education from a philophic point of view, and recognizes that, in practice, education is replete with unexamined philosophical presuppositions. “. . . [accounts] for these philosophical presuppositions and [explains] the serious problems connected with them, together with a more reasonable and adequate understanding of what it is to educate the human being, from child to adult.” – James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University
