The value of twentieth century philosophy of education is beyond dispute, yet it should be acknowledged that current perspectives, seen in isolation, no longer serve the needs of twenty-first century education philosophy. Kuhn (1970) pertinently demonstrates that so-called scientific truths at a certain time in history may not remain 'true' when a paradigm shift happens. Philosophy of education tenets therefore need to be revisited continually so that professionals in the field can update research paradigms, stay abreast of developments and remain relevant in a changing world - and this is exactly what Yusef Waghid's book will help them to achieve.
