A Personalistic Philosophy of Education

by Peter A. Bertocci - 1979

The personalistic philosophy of education that the author proposes is allied with a system of idealism that was formulated in the United States by Borden Parker Bowne and critically reformulated by his creative disciple Edgar S. Brightman. The author uses the word "allied" because a philosophy of education cannot be deduced from any metaphysics. At the same time, a philosophy of education, thoroughly developed, will itself move toward a comprehensive theory of man in relation to the Ultimate. As background for the present effort the author summarizes personalistic idealism.
