Hogan has written a fine, timely book which deserves to be widely read. The main argument is for a remembering (re-membering) of an idea of education in which it is understood as a practice in its own right, rather than just what Hogan provocatively and accurately terms a ‘subordinate activity’. That is, he argues persuasively for an understanding that education has its own inherent purposes, rather than (or as well as) extrinsic religious or political ones.
