Notes on Contributors.

Index.

"A New Zealand philosopher of education, Marshall has researched and written widely on the positivist influence on education and the relevance of Wittgenstein and Foucault for education. These essays, by former students, colleagues and acquaintances are an appreciation of and for his work . . . One of the interviews (with Michael Peters) is particularly insightful and suggestive for students of education."
