With education and work being two chief and influential elements in modern society, it is important to understand and explore their purpose, contributions and how they are impacted by other factors such as gender. It is the task of Philosophy to investigate these all-important questions, as it is a field of study in which people question and create theories about the nature of reality. Philosophers concern themselves with more than just the fundamental and mysterious topics as whether or not God(s) exist. The fundamental method of western philosophy is the use of reasoning to evaluate arguments. As such, this book takes a philosophical approach to examining these areas by including arguments from philosophers such as Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, John Dewey, Soren Aabye Kierkegaard and Jean-Paul Sartre; who have all explored the topic of education and work.
