Research Seminar: Dr Steven Stolz: MacIntyre, rationality, and education: against education of our age

Dr Steven Stolz PhD, Lecturer at the School of Education, presenting MacIntyre, rationality, and education: against education in our age.
This presentation is based on a book titled, Alasdair MacIntyre, Rationality, and Education: Against Education of Our Age that has been published by Springer. Despite MacIntyre being known as an academic who has made many notable contributions to a range of areas in philosophy, his thinking on education is not as well-known and/or properly understood by most audiences and readerships that predominantly reside in educational contexts. With this in mind, this presentation aims to provide a critique of MacIntyre’s thinking about education.
