The Teaching of Philosophy: An International Enquiry of UNESCO

Published by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization

Georges Canguilhem, Editor

In 1951 and 1952, UNESCO conducted an international enquiry into the teaching of philosophy, with special reference to its place in the educational systems of various countries. The Teaching of Philosophy presents examinations of philosophy teaching in Cuba, Egypt, France, the German Federal Republic, India, Italy, United Kingdom and the United States, along with conclusions that emerged from replies to the UNESCO questionnaire. Most conclusions are in the form of suggestions for measures best suited to the development and improvement of philosophy teaching, with particular reference to education for international understanding.
