Not only does Noddings provide a sixteen-page bibliography, but throughout each chapter she also suggests readings representing divergent opinions. The influence of Dewey is evident in citations and thought in the book. But references abound to authors as varied as Aristotle, Sartre, E. D.

Reflective individuals will be compelled to examine important questions about why they want to teach, why their own disciplines are important, and what is crucial about the education process.
