Publisher Comments:

In the influential essays included in this volume, the renowned English philosopher John Locke (1632-1704) advocated a more "modernized" course of education. Focusing on the curriculum, the stimulation of children's interests and imagination, and the function of play, he showed how to instill virtue and morality in children, rather thanand#160;merely pumping them fulland#160;of information and facts.

From the ineffectiveness of physical punishment to the best methods of teaching foreign languages and table manners, these essays compriseand#160;an enlightened view of childhood and education that revolutionized educational theory. Locke stressed the teaching of rational thinking, moral dependability, and social grace in the classroom, with the aim of helping students to not only reflect but take action.

Locke's writingsand#160;on education areand#160;enlightening reading for philosophy students, teachers, and for anyone interested inand#160;educational reform.

Synopsis:

The work of one of England's greatest philosophers, this 1693 manual is the source of many current educational theories and practices. Detailed and comprehensive, it ranges from the ineffectiveness of physical punishment to the best methods of teaching foreign languages and table manners.
