She explores ways to make schools happy places.

Críticas:

'Nel Noddings' beautiful book, Happiness and Education, is an incandescent joy to read. The educational landscape of the past ten years would be a very different one if voices as humane and wise as hers had been more widely heard. I have been hungering for a book like this and am grateful to Nel Noddings for providing it.' Jonathan Kozol, author of Savage Inequalitites and Ordinary Resurrections

'Noddings' thesis and argument that happiness and education not only can but should coexist must be taken seriously by everyone concerned about preparing children and young adults for a truly satisfying life in our democratic society.' Catholic Library World

'Happiness and Education is ultimately a critique of American culture, not just its educational system. But Noddings shows how the narrow curriculum found in most classrooms helps shape a culture with some misguided priorities. Perhaps today's educational leaders would benefit from reading her book and exercising some critical thinking of their own.' Greater Good

'The most important and influential philosopher on the concept of caring in education, Noddings beautifully synthesizes her admirable corpus in this new book … In sum, reading Noddings is akin to earning a condensed, invigorating form of liberal education in philosophy, psychology, literature, and theology. Highly recommended.' Choice

'The result is a thesis that can offer all those who work with young people the opportunity to re-evaluate the nature of children's educational experiences and how these can impact on later experiences in life.' The Psychologist

'[Noddings'] book should be required reading for anyone interested in education and politicians should be made to read it and pass an appropriate test before they are ever let loose on any of our educational institutions. There is a substantial rage of good references to allow the interested reader to pursue the debate, and many of these seem to have been chosen also for their ability to interest and engage the reader. The book is highly recommended as a stimulating read for anyone interested in education or working with children and young people. However, the book has a much wider importance than this. It is a humane, wise and invigorating reminder of the older and broader question of how we ought to live. It is also written in a style that encourages enjoyment and celebrates learning for its own sake.' Youth & Policy

'this is a revolutionary book. If educators were to accept its premise and be guided by its arguments, those involved in educating children and youth would have to dramatically rethink what they need and want to accomplish with their students. they would restructure what they do in the class room, not only the content but also the interactions they have with students.' American Journal of Psychology

Descripción CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. New.. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.When parents are asked what they want for their children, they usually answer that they want their children to be happy. Why, then, is happiness rarely mentioned as an aim of education? This book explores what we might teach if we were to take happiness seriously as an aim of education. It asks, first, what it means to be happy and, second, how we can help children to understand what happiness is. It notes that, to be truly happy, we have to develop a capacity for unhappiness and a willingness to alleviate the suffering of others. Criticizing the present almost exclusive emphasis on economic well-being and pleasure, it discusses the contributions of making a home, parenting, cherishing a place, development of character, interpersonal growth, finding work that one loves, and participating in a democratic way of life. Finally, it explores ways in which to make schools and classrooms happy places. Nº de ref. de la librería APC9780521807630
