This title considers the philosophical debates surrounding special educational needs and inclusion. "Special Educational Needs: A New Look" by Mary Warnock was initially published by the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain in 2005. In this new edition, Warnock has updated her argument, Brahm Norwich has contributed a counter-argument and Lorella Terzi has provided a foreword and afterword, drawing the two debates together. The issues debated in this new edition of "Special Educational Needs: A New Look" include: The statement of special educational need - the concept of inclusion. "Special Educational Needs: A New Look" raises issues which will be of interest to all involved in special education and inclusion, including teachers, policy makers and educationalists. This innovative series is addressed to practitioners and policy-makers. It highlights the critical perspectives that philosophy can bring to bear on current education policy and provides a lively discussion of the issues. It aims to stimulate debate and to contribute to better informed educational initiatives.

Author Biography

Lorella Terzi is Senior Lecturer in the School of Education at Roehampton University, UK. Mary Warnock is by professional training a philosopher. She has also been a prominent figure in education, first as Headmistress of Oxford High School and then as Mistress of Girton College, Cambridge. No stranger to controversy, hastening the death of her terminally-sick husband and her views on teenage abortion are but two issues for which she has recently hit the headlines. She is the author of a number of books, most notably An Intelligent Person's Guide to Ethics.
