Compassion and Education
This book makes a defence of compassion as an essential and significant quality that should be at the heart of the education of young people. It provides a careful exploration of what compassion means; how it is relevant to the various relationships among students, teachers, and the wider community; and the particular pedagogical processes that can and might develop compassion. Understanding and justifying compassion as a virtue, this book argues that compassion is a virtue central to all human relationships from the familial, to the communal and to the global. It will be of interest to academics, research and students of education. Andrew Peterson is Professor of Civic and Moral Education at Canterbury Christ Church University, UK, and Adjunct Professor of Education at the University of South Australia. His is co-editor of Civics and Citizenship Education in Australia: Challenges, Practices and International Perspectives and The Palgrave International Handbook of Education for Citizenship and Social Justice .
