The first edition of Nel Noddings' Philosophy of Education was acclaimed as the "best overview in the field" by the journal Teaching Philosophy and predicted to become "the standard textbook in philosophy of education" by Educational Theory. This classic text, originally designed to give the education student a comprehensive look at philosophical thought in relation to teaching, learning, research, and educational policy, has now been updated to reflect the most current thinking in the field. Features of the third edition include a new chapter on multiculturalism and cosmopolitanism in education, as well as updates on the latest work in care ethics. Philosophy of Education introduces students to the evolution of educational thought, from the founding fathers to contemporary theorists, with consideration of both analytic and continental traditions. This is an essential text not only for teachers and future teachers, but also for anyone needing a survey of contemporary trends in philosophy of education.

“An intelligent, insightful, and useful approach to the subject. Recommended.”
Praise for the first edition:
“Nel Noddings, one of the most well-known and well-respected philosophers of education working today, gives us here an excellent, up-to-date and state of the art text… It fills a real need and will surely, and deservedly, become the standard textbook in philosophy of education… Noddings consistently brings the student/reader to a clear sense of the ways in which philosophical controversies are relevant to educational debate.… I highly recommend it for use in introduction to philosophy of education classes at all levels, and for more advanced classes as well.”
— Teaching Philosophy
“Serves as an admirable introduction to the philosophy of education… Educators…will find the book most useful as an initial resource.”
— Educational Research
“This book offers religious educators a clear, well-organized introduction to the subject.”
“An elegant contribution from a ‘masterful' teacher. Vintage Noddings, it synthesizes, interprets, and updates the field as no other. Surely a wonderful and needed addition.”
— Lynda Stone, University of North Carolina
