John Henry Newman by James Arthur, Guy Nicholls


John Henry Newman by James Arthur, Guy Nicholls

John Henry Newman is indisputably a major thinker in education. James Arthur and Guy Nicholls' volume offers the most coherent account of Newman's educational thought. This work is divided into: Intellectual biography; Critical exposition of Newman's work; and, The reception, influence and relevance of Newman's work today.This is a major international reference series providing comprehensive accounts of the work of seminal educational thinkers from a variety of periods, disciplines and traditions. It is the most ambitious and prestigious such project ever published - a definitive resource for at least a generation. The thinkers include: Aquinas, Aristotle, Bourdieu, Bruner, Dewey, Foucault, Freire, Holt, Kant, Locke, Montessori, Neill, Newman, Owen, Peters, Piaget, Plato, Rousseau, Steiner, Vygotsky, West, and Wollstonecraft.


'... the authors show that the interplay between issues of authority and freedom were as characteristic of nineteenth-century debate as they are in the context of our own day.'
V. Alan McClelland, Emeritus Professor of Educational Studies, University of Hull
