Philosophy and Education
George Knight, for more than forty years, has been an irrepressible, eloquent, and provocative voice for the unique identity and divine purpose of the Advent movement. In this landmark work, Knight returns to one of his life-long favorite subjects—Adventist educational philosophy. Writing both for the educated layperson and the professional educator, he begins by laying the groundwork of basic philosophic understandings as they relate to education. Building on this, he then structures his main argument for the active, intentional, redemptive purpose of Adventist education. It is a bracing, inspiring, and invigorating reminder of what serious Adventists must demand from their schools—and from their educators. George Knight taught both philosophy of education and church history at Andrews University for thirty years.
