"This collection of 32 substantial and varied chapters is an intellectually stimulating effort to reconcile what psychologists know about learning and child development. Olson and Torrance's Handbook should be ordered by every library that has a graduate program in educational psychology, educational curriculum and instruction, educational philosophy, cognition, or human development psychology." Contemporary Psychology "A worthwhile addition to academic libraries; for upper-division undergraduates through faculty." L.L. Scarth, Choice "The extent and importance of this volume is hard to overestimate in that it comprehensively covers areas of a fundamental nature for any attempt to move forward schooling, as it is now practised, and brings to bear elements of deeper consideration and spiritual value on a wider scale ... The fact that is is written by eminent researchers and bridges theory and practice makes it as a useful and potent asset for the teacher in the classroom and the advocates for a different and more spiritually based approach to childhood learning and education. It gives progressivism in education a sounder theoretical and psychological foundation, on which much could be built." Christopher Clouder, Chairman of the European Council for Steiner Waldorf Education, International Journal of Children's Spirituality, August 2003From the Publisher:
The Handbook of Education and Human Development provides a review of advances in our understanding of human development and of their implications for education theory and practice. Child-centered education has been a dominant theme throughout this century, but just what such child-centered education entails has shifted significantly with advances in our understanding of children and their development. This volume sets out three potentially revolutionary changes in our understanding of education and human development. The first is a new understanding of how psychology relates to pedagogy. The second is the possibility that education is in fact what makes culture possible, and the critical relation between culture and education is examined here. The third insight is a new conception of just what it is to know, to learn, and to understand and the role of the traditional subject matter disciplines in the advancement of human understanding.Contributors are all leading international researchers. Each of them has drawn out the theoretical and practical implications of their new understanding in order to provide a volume that will bridge theory and practice in the fields of human development and education.
