Chairman’s Remarks

  • Paul H. Hirst


Both Professor Elliott’s paper and Mr Langford’s reply focus on three related areas of philosophical problems of educational significance and my comments will therefore be organised around these. I shall look first at what is meant by ‘the development of mind’ and the place of education in mental development; secondly, at the nature of systematic disciplines and their significance for both mental development and education; and thirdly, and very briefly, at the question of the justification of education in general.
