Abstract

The philosophy of environmental education is an area of growing interest and this article identifies some of the main ideas, strands of argument, and most important, questions, that characterize it. Issues concerning the aims of environmental education, interpretations of sustainability, and the perspectives on knowledge and pedagogy that arise are opened up. In addition to important sociopolitical aspects, the issue of ideas of nature and our relationship to it are taken to underlie much of the debate and together these considerations invite an examination not simply of some discrete curriculum area but the metaphysics of education as a whole.
