Landmarks in the History of Education

£14.99

Product description

Published by Cresset Press, London, (1951). First Edition.

English Education as part of the European Tradition.

From the Preface:-
The Englishman often displays a certain healthy scepticism
towards education. He is more impressed by what a man
can do than by what he knows; he is more impressed by results
than by any amount of theory, and prefers stolid character to
intellectual agility. Yet in every age there has been the need for
specialised training in one field or another, whether in that of
the soldier, the priest, the scholar, the man of affairs, or the
scientist and the technician, and much of the interest of the
history of education lies in discovering how each age dealt with
its own particular educational problems. In the present volume
the evolution of education in England is traced as part of the
historical development of European education, from its origins
in ancient Greece to the modern practice of education for all.
I have tried to delineate clearly the landmarks in this long
history, and to illustrate it by reference at each stage to the
education actually experienced by some outstanding and
characteristic figure.

A book of this kind must be largely dependent upon the
specialised work of others, and my debt in this respect is
acknowledged in the footnotes and bibliography. Among
friends and colleagues who have helped, at Bristol and else-
where at home and abroad, I owe a special debt of gratitude
to Dr. T. K. Deny, who has read the book in proof and made
a number of comments and suggestions. But for any expressions
of opinion the author is, of course, himself responsible.

CONDITION: Slightly creased dust jacket at top of spine. Foxing to edge of pages with minor instances throughout, but otherwise good, clean copy.
