Prof Paul Hirst

We have sad news for members of PESGB. Professor Paul Hirst died on October 25 at the age of 92. Paul has been a pivotal figure in philosophy of education and teacher education more generally since the early 1960s. As a close colleague of Richard Peters, he co-founded PESGB in 1964 and later became its Chair and, since 2012, its President. He died peacefully at his home in Brighton.

There will now be discussions within the Society about how we might best commemorate Paul’s outstanding contribution to philosophy of education. We will be in touch with members soon about how they might contribute to those discussions and also how they might record tributes to Paul and their memories of him.
