Philosophy of Education

​Philosophy of Education is an international, peer-reviewed, quarterly journal published by the Philosophy of Education Society. The journal includes papers selected for and delivered at the annual meeting of the Philosophy of Education Society and additional scholarship that has gone through a peer-review process that may not have been featured at our annual meeting.


Previous versions of this scholarship appeared in the Society's Yearbook. We are currently in the process of moving over back issues of the Yearbook to our new journal website. However, until that process is complete, please find this scholarship using the links below:
