New publication: Robert Grosseteste and Theories of Education

Delighted to give news of a forthcoming publication from the Ordered Human project, a scion project to Ordered Universe based at Bishop Grosseteste University and the University of Oxford, with many scholars from a wide variety of places and backgrounds. Pubished by Routledge, Robert Grosseteste and Theories of Education is edited by Jack Cunningham and Steven Puttick, and will be available on 16th December. Authors include Jack and Steven, Giles Gasper, Brian Tanner, Tom McLeish, Giacchino Curiello, Rosamund Gammie, Peter Claus, Charles Roe, and Adam Hounslow-Eyre.

The volume examines Grosseteste’s ideas on education, bringing together specialists on medieval studies, modern scientists, and contemporary educationalists. A wide array of papers offer reflections on a series of educational processes, located historically and in the modern day, from university access to Gadamer. A tremendous tribute to the energy of Jack and Steven in bringing the collection together, and to the work of the Ordered Human project in expanding the multi-disciplinary ethos to education theory and practice. And it will be out before Christmas…!
