This book begins with an original and critical analysis of the influence of Cartesian philosophical anthropology in educational thinking and proposes an Aristotelian attentiveness to practical reasons as an alternative. Pedagogical insights are developed and defended against Kantian and Humean objections. The author then argues for a meaningful education concerned with human rights, interpreted intelligently and grounded in one’s responsibilities to promote the common good and the basic aspects of human well-being. This text is an authoritative explication and creative retrieval of natural law theory for the field of philosophy of education. It will be useful not only to students of philosophy of education, but would also benefit students in education studies in general, as well as those interested in ethics, political theory and cultural studies.
