This chapter provides an overview of philosophy of education as positioned in between the discourses and concerns of philosophy, on the one hand, and education, on the other. Maintaining credibility with both domains presents philosophy of education with certain dilemmas, which this chapter tries to address. Three ways of minimizing these dilemmas are explored: the development of non-ideal theories, philosophy of education as a situated practice, and the use of case-based methods.
