Summary Theories of Education: Studies of Significant Innovation in Western Educational Thought is the second edition of a systematic analysis of the major educational theories of European culture. It covers the spectrum of educational thought from the traditional positions of Plato and Aristotle, through the opposed progressive positions of Rousseau and Dewey, to recent and contemporar y variations and reactions to these viewpoints in the work of the Russian communist educator Makarenko, the behaviourist and social theorist B. F. Skinner, the apostle of freedom in education A. S. Neill, the British analytic philosopher R. S. Peters, and finally the prophet of the deschooled society, Ivan Illich. In this second edition a new section covers developments in educational theory up to the present day, along with a comprehensive bibliography.
