Educational Philosophy

Prof. Tal Gilead

My fields of research are philosophy of education and the history of educational ideas. My main interest is in the philosophical dimensions of educational policy, evil and education, and educational philosophies during the Enlightenment period. My current research examines the influence of economic thinking on educational policy from a philosophical perspective. It focuses on the use of economic tools, such as cost-benefit analysis and production functions, in educational policy, and considers questions related to resources allocation and justice with a specific emphasis on the effects of unpredictability.
