In a brief hundred pages, Dr. Hancock’s book, Recovering a Catholic Philosophy of Elementary Education, presents a clear vision of the goals of Catholic education and the human person it is meant to develop. The book is divided into six chapters, each with a number of subdivisions and suggested discussion questions, making it ideal for busy faculty members to discuss over a semester or an academic year.

Dr. Hancock begins by explaining that a philosophy of education is inevitable – all educators work from one (or more), usually without realizing it, certainly without questioning it.  He then draws on the Greek tradition as developed by St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas to express a Catholic philosophy of education.
