Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the relationship between religious education research and teaching religious education. The author's contribution in this chapter is from a neo-Aristotelian point of view. Neo-Aristotelianism as a label is used in different contexts as a description of a collection of heterogeneous thinkers. In order to make the analysis concrete, the author starts with an understanding of educational theory by a neo-Aristotelian educational philosopher in a particular paper, namely the article Philosophy and education by W. Carr. Carr together with writers as for instance J. Dunne and P. Hogan are inspired by neo-aristotelians like A. MacIntyre and C. Taylor, and are working towards a re-reading of educational theory as practical philosophy. He also tries to work out Carr's conception. Carr is framing his discussion within educational philosophy, but it has implications for educational theory in general.

Keywords: educational philosophy; educational theory; neo-Aristotelianism; Philosophy and education; religious education
