John V. Karavitis – essay from “Roald Dahl & Philosophy” mentioned in book review!!!!!

http://allsortsofbooks.blogspot.com/2014/05/roald-dahl-and-philosophy-edited-by.html

From the book review:

My favourite chapter is Matilda and the Philosophy of Education: or, What’s an Education for? In this chapter, three schools of education – essentialism, progressivism and romanticism is examined through the book Matilda and its various characters. I admit, it’s not the first topic that comes to mind when I think of Matilda (I think of bullying when I think of this book – bullying by adults), but I found this to be an eye-opening read.

THAT’S ***MY*** ESSAY!!!!!!! WOOT!!!!!!!!!!!
