KIRKUS REVIEW

A survey of the entire field of philosophy -- a defence of contemporary American philosophical, it in education, its task and what can be done to improve and extend its teaching. This book was commissioned by the American Philosophical Association and grew out of a year and a half study and regional conferences throughout the country. The five authors present the detailed proposals for change in method of instruction in philosophy, with consideration to the college curriculum, the philosopher's responsibility to the public, the nature of liberal education. An extensive analytical book for a specialized public.
