(p.309) Chapter Sixteen Hast any Philosophy in Thee, Shepherd?
The Drama of Possibility

John J. McDermott

Fordham University Press

This chapter presents an essay on the role of philosophy in disciplinary practises, particularly in teaching or education. It argues that philosophy is one of one, and it is the reflective activity that grounds all other reflections. It explains that the bequest of philosophy in atavistic human situations is to provide both a landscape and an inscape or to provide both a lodestone and a lodestar. This chapter suggests that the philosophical foundation of educational psychology should be developed free from self-deception.

Keywords:   philosophy, teaching, education, educational psychology, self-deception, essay
