    Ethics and the Community of Inquiry: Education for deliberative democracy.Gilbert Burgh, Terri Field & Mark Freakley - 2006 - South Melbourne: Cengage/Thomson.
    Ethics and the Community of Inquiry gets to the heart of democratic education and how best to achieve it.

It makes a significant contribution to current debates on educational theory and practice, in particular to pedagogical and professional practice, and ethics education.

    The notion of a community of inquiry has been treated by many of its proponents as being an exemplar of democracy in action.
