  • Epistemology: Course Analysis

  • Childhood In Education

    What Role Does Childhood Play in Education? As we continue exploring different aspects that make up the educational landscape, we have to inevitably focus on childhood as one of the main components.

  • Compare And Contrast Socrates And Plato's Definition Of Wisdom?

    Asian thinkers? I think we are discussing ancient Greek philosophers in this course because we live in America, and therefore we are most associated with Western philosophy rather than Asian thinkers who practice Eastern philosophies. Also with regards to education I think our educational system enforces more of a Western education philosophy then Eastern, where the classrooms are typically student focused. By this I mean teachers are seeking ways to get students actively involved in their…

These ideas were not part of his personal accounts, and…
