Book Review Ethical Visions of Education: Philosophies in Practice Dale T. Snauwaert David Hansen, Ed. Ethical Visions of Education: Philosophies in Practice. New York: Teachers College Press, developed in association with the Boston Research Center for the 21st Century, 2007. 224 pp. ISBN 0807747580, $24.95 (pbk.) Ethical Visions of Education is an insightful and powerful collection of essays exploring the philosophy of education of ten prominent world educators, including John Dewey, Paulo Freire, W. E. B. Du Bois, Tsunesaburo Makiguchi, Jane Addams, Tao Xingzhi, Maria Montessori, Rabindranath Tagore, Rudolf Steiner, and Albert Schweitzer. The book provides an in-depth exploration of arguably the greatest educators and educational philosophers of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It is a wonderful resource in two ways: First, each chapter makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the educational thought and practice of the featured educators and philosophers. Second, what is even more powerful than the clear and thoughtful articulation and analysis of the particular philosophies of education explored in the book is the overall philosophical framework. The basic premise of the book, as articulated by David Hansen in the introduction, is that the work of philosophy concerns the development of "generative ideas,"
