In todays pluralist and multicultural society questions about how to teach religiously and ethnically diverse students in Catholic schools abound. A Catholic Philosophy of Education addresses these challenges by examining the documents from the Roman Congregation for Catholic Education along- side the writings of Jacques Maritain and Bernard Lonergan. Mario DSouza proposes a contemporary formulation for a Catholic philosophy of education in which the ideals of Catholicism form the basis for the mission of the Catholic school. Drawing on the Churchs educational documents and informed by Maritain and Lonergan DSouza explains how the unifying anthropology of Catholic education enables Catholic schools to serve amidst diversity by avoiding the extremes of religious exclusivism and fundamentalism on the one hand and relativism and individualism on the other. He explores the aims of Catholic schools in relation to students teachers and society and the relationship between goodness discipline and knowledge. He argues that students must be educated for personal and communal freedom and authenticity and to strive for the common good suggesting how a Catholic philosophy of education can provide the frame- work for such personal and communal transformation. Essential reading for new and experienced Catholic educators A Catholic Philosophy of Education demonstrates that Maritain and Lonergan have much to offer in service of an education that is liberating instructive illumi- nating and integrative. Mario O. DSouza is a member of the Congregation of St Basil and Basilian Fathers Chair in Religion and Education in the Faculty of Theology at Uni- versity of St Michaels College University of Toronto.
