Summary
"This book offers description and analysis of philosophies that can provide scaffolding and justification for the construction of critical, democratic educational theory and practice. The reader is presented with a broad, historical treatment of ideas in their social, political, economic, and educational contexts; moreover, the perennial quest for certainty is contrasted with those who have decided it has always been an unhappy, unsuccessful, and dangerous quest."--BOOK JACKET
