"This book is a collective study of knowledge, teaching and wisdom resulting from a summer institute sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities. It is the work of philosophers and educators working to produce a historical and analytical understanding of the relationship between theory and practice, knowledge and wisdom, philosophy and education. The authors and editors are professional educators in various fields, most prominently, philosophy and education. They have written articles from diverse philosophical and educational perspectives to provide new answers to the basic questions of philosophy and education. What is knowledge? What is wisdom? What is education? How can education result in the acquisition of knowledge and wisdom? The readers, who should include philosophers, educators and all those interested in these questions, will find novel and unique answers to these questions from the study of this volume."--BOOK JACKET.
