Vision and Elusiveness in Philosophy of Education: R. S. Peters on the Legacy of Michael Oakeshott

Journal of Philosophy of Education 43 (1):223-240 (2009)
Abstract
Despite his elusiveness on important issues, there is much in Michael Oakeshott's educational vision that Richard Peters quite rightly wishes to endorse. The main aim of this essay is, however, to consider Peters' justifiable critique of three features of Oakeshott's work. These are (1) the rigidity of his distinction between vocational and university education, (2) the lack of clarity and accuracy in his philosophy of teaching and learning, especially the under-conceptualisation of the role of example in teaching, (3) the over-emphasis on tradition in moral and civic learning
