Harry BrighouseTopic: Why do we educate?

Speaker: Author and Professor Harry Brighouse, Ph.D. (UW-Madison)

How we educate students needs to match why we educate them. The impact of education is lasting. Harry Brighouse will share how we should educate children so that they can have a flourishing life, and will contribute to others having flourishing lives. What does education look like to support this goal? This, he argues, requires considerable changes in what we teach, how we teach, and in the way that schools, and colleges, are organized. He will discuss matters as technical as how students should be tested, and as simple as how long the school lunch break should be.

Family ValuesHarry Brighouse is Professor of Philosophy and Affiliate Professor of Educational Policy Studies at UW-Madison. He teaches applied ethics, political philosophy, and philosophy of education, and a freshman class on Children Marriage and the Family. He has been a Carnegie Scholar, and a Senior Program Adviser for the Spencer Foundation. He has written or edited several books, including School Choice and Social Justice (2000), On Education (2005) and, most recently, Family Values: The Ethics of Parent-Child Relationships (2014).
