More than 4 weeks availability
Originally published in 1966, this volume reappraises the educational philosophy of Comenius. Until recently the attention given to Comenius and his work concentrated on a narrow interpretation of his pedagogy which played down his pansophic theory. In the second half of the nineteenth century Germany led the way in pedagogical study and Comenius was widely accepted as having laid the foundations of a science of education. The emergence of education as an academic subject in England and the USA led to a considerable interest in the history of educational ideas and Comenius' work.
Chapters include: The concept of the good man The concept of encyclopaedic knowledge The concept of the good society The concept of didactic process Aspects of universal education Wisdom Language Reform Theory and practice of education Instruments of Universal education Schools Teachers Books
