New Pilot Project: "Epistemology of Education"

Eidyn is delighted to announce the start of a new pilot project entitled "Epistemology of Education".

What are the basic aims and ideals of the educational enterprise? What ought educators try to accomplish? are only some of the questions that the project will address. The main goal is to explore the range of philosophical connections between mainstream epistemology and philosophy of education.
