Title: Three Historical Philosophies of Education: Aristotle, Kant, Dewey

Author: Frankena, William K.

Publisher: Scott, Foresman; 1st edition, 1965

About the Author: Frankena was an American philosopher who wrote extensively in moral philosophy. He is widely known for his landmark essay “The Naturalistic Fallacy”, which gives a critical analysis of G. E. Moore’s argument that coined the fallacy’s name.

The featured book here provides a historically insightful comparison of the three monumental philosophical traditions, but with a focus on the differences in their respective philosophies of education. For the student of ethics and morality and education, Frankena’s comprehensive study should be of great benefit.
