Samuel D. Rocha
A Primer for
Philosophy & Education
An accessible introduction for anyone interested in philosophy and education.
Sam Rocha, a teacher and scholar of educational foundations, has published this succinct primer to prepare and motivate his students to take philosophy and education seriously. In warm, plainspoken prose, Rocha presents a clear, nuanced, and moving account of what philosophy and education are, are not, and why that is important.
Jargon, citations, and scholarship are not to be found in this book -- only carefully designed examples, stories, and self-disclosure. Original illustrations, too.
Anyone can read and benefit from this book, especially those interested in philosophy, educational foundations, philosophy of education, teacher preparation, religious studies, and anything related to what is important and worthwhile.
