[picture]Philosophy and Education
The Philosophy and Education program at Teachers College, Columbia University, centers around two closely related convictions:

1. that philosophical reflection and inquiry is indispensable for generating sound educational practice, and

2. that educational practice is indispensable for bringing philosophical reflection and inquiry to life.

The program seeks to prepare scholars and practitioners who will bring to the world of education a dynamic grasp of how vital is the conjunction "and" that links the enduring concepts philosophy and education. The program builds on a rich heritage of philosophy and education at Teachers College initiated by John Dewey, William Heard Kilpatrick, and others.

The program provides students a challenging opportunity to deepen and widen their humanistic, philosophical thinking about education. Course work centers around the close reading of primary texts in the history of ideas, with a focus on how these texts illuminate the meanings and significance of educational practice.
