Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"One of the greatest problems of education," Kant observes, "is how to unite submission to the necessary restraint with the child's capability of exercising his free will." He explores potential solutions to this dilemma, stressing the necessity of treating children as children and not as miniature adults. His positive outlook on the effects of education include a conviction that human nature could be continually improved; to achieve this end, he advocated that pedagogy, the science of education, be raised to academic status and studied at a university level and#8212; an innovative notion for the 18th century.

Synopsis:

Rather than a systematic study of theories, the famous philosopher offers a succinct treatise of his thoughts on education, including a proposal for raising the science of education to academic status — an innovative notion for the 18th century, and a landmark in modern Western education theory. Annette Churton translation.
