In this essay, philosophy of education is framed as a means of understanding our humanity via the study of pedagogy. The paper considers the notion of practical wisdom in education. A practically wise educator is depicted one who both mediates divergent worldviews or philosophical orientations embedded in pedagogy, and weaves from these a consistent and appropriate vision of education. Philosophy of education is not merely reflexive activity; it is a disposition to the world concerned with the relationship between teaching, learning, and our humanity.
