About the Authors
Written with exemplary clarity, flair and imagination, Yusef Waghid and Nuraan Davids’ new book enriches teacher education and enlarges educational thought by exploring highly significant philosophical insights without a hint of reduction. As ‘rhythmic illuminations of how action can be engendered within philosophy of education’, the chapters of this book, which should be read by everyone in contemporary philosophy of education, bring valuable and passionate conviction to crucial topics of present-date educational-theoretical debates.

Waghid and Davids, in their unravelling of the idea of philosophy of education as action, provide a salient and critical account of transformative modes of teacher activity which encourage critical thinking, and reflective and imaginative action in the classroom. This volume adds significantly to the existing corpus of literature on the theory and practice of teacher education.
