Philosophy of Education is a systematic reflection upon the variety of activities and practices by which we seek to impart knowledge and information and develop human capacities. As such, it involves sustained inquiry into (1) the aims or goals of the educational processes (the hoped-for end result of the activities and practices), (2) the most effective means to attain those goals (teaching methods), and (3) the proper content or subject matter of education (the curriculum). Further, since education concerns the set of processes by which young people are introduced to and brought into participation in their culture and society, educational philosophy necessarily includes (4) reflections about the role of individuals in the social and political order. Special focus will be placed on eight (8) crucial questions which relate to the four (4) key themes highlighted before.
