Educational Theory as Theory of Conduct
From Aristotle to DeweyBook - 1987
Chambliss presents clearly the position that educational theory is a theory of conduct rather than an applied science. It is theory of conduct, not about conduct. He reveals the richness of this idea and examines the various ways it has been discussed in the works of Aristotle, Rousseau, Dewey, and others. He also demonstrates its timeliness for today's educators by presenting it as an antidote to the current widespread tendency of trying to quantify conduct, to treat education as a thing to be measured.
