Education and Knowledge: The Structured Misrepresentation of Reality by Kevin Harris

In this book, first published in 1979, Kevin Harris explores the idea that in capitalist liberal democracies formal education functions essentially not to reveal reality, but rather to transmit to each new generation a structured misrepresentation of reality. In defence of this controversial and thought-provoking view, the author argues that all knowledge of the world is theory-laden and that a neutral, detached, objective description of the world is impossible. This title will be of interest to students of the philosophy of education.
